Come learn all about coffee and some of the complex issues involved with the production, harvest, and export of this invaluable plant to humans. Our colloquium will start off with a film screening of Dry Roast, a documentary film made by UC Berkeley Journalism graduates Emily Thomas and Lauren Schwartzman. The screening will be followed by a presentation from Mayra Orellana-Powell, the founder of Cataracha Coffee, a social enterprise dedicated to accessing the specialty market for small coffee farmers in Santa Elena, La Paz, Hondouras. We will also be joined by Anika Rice, a National Geographic Fellow for her project Women in Coffee. You don’t want to miss this important discussion. Coffee tastings and pourings will be available throughout the morning.
