Coffee Week 2018

We have just set dates for Coffee Week 2018 -- our third offering! Details will be developed through the spring, but the maps and posts below give a good idea of where the course will go. We will spend 8 hours each day learning about coffee locally. We will watch a film or two on campus, but most of the course will be held in some of the best cafes and roasteries in Massachusetts -- a state with more excellent coffee companies per square inch than any other!

The course will meet 8:30a - 4:30p, July 23-27, 2018.
NOTE: This is a change from previously-published dates.

Coffee Week 2017

Coffee Week was such a success last year that we are offering it again this August 7-11, 2017 (Monday to Friday). I will meet the class at a designated parking area every morning at 8:30, with a van ready for the day's adventure. There will be some "class" time, but most of it will be in cafes or roasting facilities all over eastern and central Massachusetts.

Much of the itinerary shown on the 2016 map will be followed, but with some important additions in Somerville and Boston, and unfortunately some deletions. Check the draft 2017 map, subject to revision as the course date approaches and cafes/roasteries are confirmed.

The course is GEOG 400-002, available at BSU College of Continuing Studies, which can also provide answers to registration and billing questions.
