Astronaut Coffee

Astronaut Coffee

Blast off with us as Jenni takes us through the history of coffee and space flight from the first Apollo mission to the moon, the space shuttle missions, and the International Space Station. Each new era of space flight brought a new era of coffee consumption along with ingenuity to make the coffee experience as much like Earth as possible. If there's one thing we learned it's that, for astronauts, coffee is as essential as food and water.

For the tasting we try Hula Girl Coffee from the Hawaiian Royal Trading Company and learn a bit about the history of Kona coffee.

We think you'll find this episode is out of this world!
