Interview with Michael Shipley, Part 1
Conscious Cup Coffee House - Part 1: Michael Shipley, proprietor and manager of Conscious Cup Coffee House in Crystal Lake, IL, gives us a guided tour of the coffee making process, from roasting the beans through grinding, brewing, and tasting. Mike also tells us how he uses coffee, and his coffee shop, to create a community gathering place where coffee lovers and anyone else can drop by, hang out, and feel at home.
Public Perspective, with host Kevin McDermott, serves up lively conversation each week with
intriguing guests from a wide range of backgrounds. The half-hour show covers politics,
the economy, business, and social issues with well known public voices and with unsung heroes.
Our guests have included such notables as: the President of the Cook County Board, the Editorial
Page Editor of the Chicago Tribune, the Mayor of Amman, Jordan, and a Nobel Prize nominee as well
as social activists, elected officials, and everyday citizens who have something to say, but whom
you won't see in the mainstream media.
Kevin and his staff draw on a wealth of varied experience in business and industry, entertainment,
religion, the arts, and civic organizations to ask the right questions and focus in on the most
interesting answers. The Public Perspective team brings you shows full of vibrant, entertaining
conversation that will make you think.
