History of Coffee 101
February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm$5.00
In the class, we’ll explore coffee’s past, essentially the history of colonialism and slavery. The structure for how we purchase coffee was put into place a long time ago and, as coffee professionals, we believe it’s important to gain a deeper knowledge of these systems in order to see more clearly where we are and what we can do today to work toward racial equity. There are a surprising number of overlaps with American history, and it’s important to our work to understand them.
This event will be held over Zoom, and the link will be distributed the day before the event.
