Course Description

This talk will discuss the role of geography in understanding the production, movement, and consumption of coffee around the world. Which countries are the coffee powerhouses and why? What is the role of sustainability in coffee production? Why was it considered the "devil's drink" for so long? We will include a coffee tasting and food pairing representing different global regions as part of this class. However, you do not have to be a coffee drinker to enjoy this course!
