About the Course:


Coffee is one of the most valuable traded commodity’s in the world. So what made this hot and delectable drink so popular? In this course we aim to answer the question of where the roots of the coffee bean lay. In doing so, more complex questions and themes will arise. The discussion of coffee will allow us to view history through a multidisciplinary lens. We will endeavor to separate myth from history throughout the course. A discussion of the history of trade and the people that facilitate in the cultivation of the bean will also be discussed. Additionally, this course looks to review and test different varieties of coffee.
