Josh Zloof Wants to Make the World a Better Cup of Instant Coffee on Hack the Process Podcast

Instant coffee has a bad reputation, and you may think it’s well earned. But that means there’s room for disruption, and Josh Zloof’s company, Sudden Coffee, has patented a process for capturing all the flavor of the world’s best coffee and packaging it in a convenient test tube. In this episode of Hack the Process, Josh will tell us what drew him away from a stable career to lead a startup, how he pivoted from selling consumer subscription plans to partnering with artisanal coffee roasters, and what he’s learned from avoiding traditional business books in favor of reading fiction.
