My coffee obsession began when I started to understand the plight of many thousands of farmers who work very hard to produce fine coffees and earn very little for their efforts.
Thank the farmers!
I have expanded this site's information about coffee shops, coffee roasters, coffee tours, health effects,
and coffee preparation, and have moved that information to other pages. Please explore!
Second-year Seminar: Secret Life of Coffee
in cooperation with
Social Justice League's Just Trade Fair
Both events in the Grand Ballroom of the Campus Center
Just Trade Fair: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted to Coffee Kids, which supports education, health, and other projects in coffee-growing communities worldwide. Detailed information will be available at the event.
Thanks to the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Department of Geography, and the Social Justice League
Thanks to the dedicated staff in CESO and the Campus Center
Thanks to the wonderful students who have helped this event to grow year-by-year
Most of all, of course, Thank the Farmers from every coffee-growing corner of the planet!
|First Hour -- 11:00
am - noon
Hour -- 2:00-3:00 pm
CO2 FROM PERU WILL BE
AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE EVENT
All of the carbon dioxide emitted in the production, roasting, and transportation of this coffee is offset by the planting of trees in Peru.
The timing of this year's event is going to be a bit different than in recent years. We are starting earlier but ending at the same time. A more limited selection of coffees will be available during the interim, but students will not be presenting posters between noon and 2:00.
NOTE: Where two coffees are listed, both have been ordered but preparation plans have not yet been finalized.
