Been Craving Coffee?
Fall is in full force now, leaves and falling, and talks of Halloween celebrations are rampant. With all of the stress of midterms, sleep was in very low supply. A common necessity of college students is coffee. Have you ever stopped to look at the implications of coffee production? 3:00 – 4:30 pm in 103 Taylor Hall Gather for a personal story on the devastating impacts of coffee rust on coffee production and some adaptation strategies presented by Cristian Merlo, Manager and Producer, Las DiosasCooperative in Nicaragua. Plant Pathology professor Caitilyn Allen will provide an historical perspective, and will join a panel discussion with Cristian, Professor Brad Barham of Agricultural and Applied Economics and Matt Early, Co-founder of Just Coffee Cooperative. Just Coffee from Las Diosas and light snacks will be served.
