First-year students enrolled in the interdisciplinary studies (IDS 125) class taught by Gerald Thalmann, associate professor of accounting, have focused their study this term on the business of coffee.
They decided to host a coffee extravaganza during week 10 on March 11 and invite members of the campus community to sample various coffees.
The free event begins at noon Tuesday, March 11, in Smith Hall. Participants can sample five different coffees and participate in a blind ranking of the varieties. The featured coffees include Enactus’ Guatemalan brew, gourmet Kona Coffee, new varieties from El Salvador and Ethiopia, and Indonesia’s Kopi Luwak, the most expensive coffee in the world.
Admission to the coffee extravaganza is free but donations are appreciated.
