#ThankTheFarmers

On Monday evening, April 27, we held an online event sponsored by Bridgewater One Book One Community, BSU Senior College, and the BSU Department of Geography. This was a Zoom event; a recording is at the end of this post.

The repela process at Mil Flores, my home-away-from-home in the community of La Corona.

The event is an online version of a public lecture that was originally scheduled as part of the community-wide read of Thanks a Thousand by A.J. Jacobs.

I will describe my own journey, beginning in our Bridgewater kitchen and ending in coffee farms in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and beyond. Skipping over a few steps in the commodity chain, this presentation will begin with our daily coffee ritual and will then focus on the farmers to whom those rituals are connected.

You do not need to have read this book to attend this presentation, but it is a quick read (even by my slow-reader standards) and readily available online for those who wish to peruse it.

View my slides to revisit any part of the presentation and to follow links for further exploration. A video of this presentation will be available after the event.

May 6 Tasting Event: Please visit the GEOG298 blog for student presentations; please visit early to choose one or more coffees to order so that you can enhance the experience with remote tasting.

Summer note: If you wish to learn more about coffee from the comfort of your home, please consider Coffee Week. We will be offering this 3-credit summer class June 15-19; it is open to BSU and non-BSU students alike, for undergraduate or graduate credit.
