Additionally students had an opportunity to learn more about the coffee through a coffee commodity chain panel held on the second to last week of the course. CAN staff gave presentations on their partnerships with both the communities in Mexico and Nicaragua along with presenting about their established relationship with Santa Cruz Coffee Roasters. Our special guest on the panel was Katrina Benedicto a UCSC alumni that works in coffee distribution. She provided great insight on how coffee markets have shifted their approach to move forward with going beyond fair trade.
Once again we would like to thank all our partners and collaborations this quarter. We would like to thank CSC for the funding that was made available for these events.
