GLB 2030 - Coffee and the World

3 cr
This course uses a familiar commodity - coffee - as a lens through which to examine the relationship between the familiar goods we consume and what it takes to deliver them to us. Coffee is the second-most traded good in the world (after oil) and its production, trade, and consumption affect millions of people. Despite this, most people know very little about it. What they do know is focused almost entirely on consumption of the final product. Throughout the semester, we will draw back the curtain on coffee to learn how our local choices affect the world.
This course fulfills the World Views Frame of Reference.
