Topic: My Coffee/Tea Class (3 msgs / 79 lines)
1) From: Anthony Talo
Hello List!
Just wanted to un-lurk to let you know that my class at Saint Mary's
College of CA made the newspaper. The class is titled "Battle of the
Beverage Giants: Coffee vs. Tea" - I know a dumb name for a class but it
has attracted attention and filled quickly. The students are learning about
the history, anthropology, biology and chemistry of coffee and tea.
We just finished pan-roasting 6lbs of Sweet Maria's finest and the students
are pretty jazzed (also caffeinated). I know that a couple of them are
going to order from Sweet Maria's and roast at home themselves!
I just wanted to say thanks to all on this list for their inspiration and
"Thanks!" to Sweet Maria's for being right over the hill here in the Bay
area. I've included two links, on for the online version in the Contra
Costa Times, and the other, a PDF archived by Saint Mary's of the original,
paper version.http://www.contracostatimes.com/moraga/ci_19633366http://www.stmarys-ca.edu/sites/default/files/attachments/files/Contra%20Costa%20Times%20%22Quenching%20A%20Culinary%20Thirst%22.pdf
Cheers,

OK, now I seriously want to attend St.Mary's. Seems like it might be a bit
of a commute from Massachusetts, but this sounds fantastic.
Thanks for leaving lurk-mode to share this. What a terrific idea for a
class!
Around here, Boston University has a food & wine program that is
interesting (but I couldn't afford their prices). I know that Jacques Pepin
was involved w/this program - read that he couldn't partake in the last
seminar, though, due to a hip operation. :(. Lately, they seem to be taking
it to a more professional level than previously, though. Bridgewater State
south of the Boston area has classes that sound similar to yours - there's
a geography professor there who is a homeroaster, and he incorporates
everything in connection to coffee. I wish the college was near me, because
I would def attend it if I could.
Good luck - please keep us posted. Sounds terrific.

Anthony -
It's been a long time since I looked, but I found the Bridgewater State
pages. Thought you (and others) might be interested:http://webhost.bridgew.edu/jhayesboh/coffee/coffeeoutreach.htmlhttp://webhost.bridgew.edu/jhayesboh/coffee/
