In many cultures, coffee and coffee-drinking are closely associated with hospitality. However, the benefits of the coffee trade are unevenly distributed as are rising risks associated with climate change. What can we do to help make coffee and capitalism more hospitable for people and environments?  We invite you to learn from the students enrolled in “Coffee and Capitalism,” whose projects explore the grounds for changing the contemporary coffee trade.
