Coffee: it seems simple. But, did you know that when you are drinking your morning ‘cup of joe’ you are taking part in the end result of a process that has touched thousands of lives across multiple continents? When you drink coffee you are part of a global network of connectivity and exchange that no single person is capable of planning. Join us, and two local coffee entrepreneurs, on December 10 for a free cup of coffee and to learn more about the miraculous coffee making process that keeps the world running. 

The first drink is free for all attendees.
