Let me set the stage. I was enjoying a crafted espresso at a local roaster, Knowledge Perk. As I was sipping my drink, I caught a glimpse of a blockchain login screen that I had seen before. The screen came up on a large monitor where customers can observe the details of the coffee roasting process in action.
