In Episode 9 of the Disruptors for Good podcast I speak with Max Rivest, the Co-founder and CEO of Wize Monkey. By using the leaves of the coffee plant in the off-season that are typically discarded, Wize Monkey generates year-round jobs for growers and train staff with added-value skills to process and taste-test Coffee Leaf Tea.
