The Coffee Equity Lab is a new experiential learning and research lab housed in the Wond’ry’s Social Innovation Practice Area. The lab offers inspiring pathways for students to examine the pressing issues shaping our world–climate change, global trade, equity and justice–through the lens of the global coffee industry.
Pilot programming for the Lab begins in the Fall 2020 semester with VU Coffee Talks, a lecture and workshop series hosted in partnership with the Robert Penn Warren Center’s Scholarship of Everyday Life: Coffee series.
This video is a recording of the first VU Coffee Talk, hosted on September 17, 2020. The talk is titled “Third Wave Coffee, Maya Farmers, and the Creation of Value” and was presented by Dr. Edward (Ted) Fischer.
