Merryspring serves up talk on Coffee: From Crop to Cup March 3

Feb 14, 2020
Coffee cherries will be part of the discussion on coffee at Merryspring March 3.

Camden — Rock City Coffee’s Meredyth Lynn will lead a presentation called “Coffee: From Crop to Cup” at Merryspring Nature Center Tuesday, March 3 at noon.

It is easy for coffee consumers to forget that a daily cup is an agricultural product that often travels a complicated path. In this talk Lynn will discuss the origins of coffee, how and where it is grown and processed and environmental issues that are impacting coffee farmers, consumers and the industry. Her aim is to connect coffee lovers with a greater awareness of and appreciation for the coffee supply chain and how we can be more ethical in our consumption.

Lynn got her start in coffee at Rock City Coffee, then Second Read Books & Coffee, in 2009. In 2013 she left her position and relocated to the Pacific Northwest, where she served as a barista, coffee educator, production assistant and event coordinator at a Batdorf & Bronson, a large roasting company south of Seattle. In 2019 she returned to Rock City — now an employee-owned cooperative — and the Midcoast area to share her experiences and knowledge.

This lecture is part of the Winter Talk series at Merryspring. Admission to Tuesday talks is $5, with free admission for members of Merryspring.
