Coffee, Supply Streams, and Power
August 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
The structure for how the coffee industry purchases coffee dates back centuries and is deeply connected with the history of slavery. This session explores how coffee supply streams work against the backdrop of the history of colonialism. As coffee professionals, we believe it’s important to gain a deeper knowledge of the systems that made coffee possible throughout history in order to see more clearly where we are and what we can do today to work toward racial equity.
Typically an internal education offering, we are offering this session publicly in honor of Black History Month. This class is free and open to everyone in an effort to ensure access to this educational opportunity is as equitable as possible. In lieu of payment for this class, please consider making a donation to the National Black Women’s Justice Institute, an organization we are proud to support.
