In case you haven’t heard yet, we finally have a gourmet food and wine show coming to Myrtle Beach, SC. And guess what? The Coffee Scholar will be the official coffee expert for the show. I’ll be on hand for the entire event giving my take on the coffee industry and delivering several seminars. Don’t worry though. I scheduled around Guy Fieri’s demonstration, so you won’t have to worry about missing his show to visit mine.
Drop in and say hello when you visit the show. I’ll have goodie bags and coffee samples at each seminar, so don’t miss out. The final schedule isn’t out yet for my classes, but I thought I’d go ahead and pique your interest by telling you about my topics.
Here’s the breakdown for my seminars…
Genocide Coffee- Reviving the Coffee Trade in Rwanda. FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY
Coffee is growing again in Rwanda and they’re producing some great brew. This will be a very open and frank discussion of the racial genocide that occurred in Rwanda and how it affected the coffee trade in that country. We’ll see how the people are recovering and how coffee is a large part of that success and change. This seminar is FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY and will feature graphic discussion and photographs.
What have you ever wanted to know about coffee and were afraid to ask? Coffee 101 will answer those questions. Come prepared to learn terminology, the process from bush to brew, the best way to store coffee, and more.
Kilimanjaro Coffee- Climbing the Highest Mountain in Africa
I’ll talk about my endeavor to climb the highest points on the globe. Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa was one of those stops. It’s the highest point in Africa and the tallest freestanding volcano in the world. I stayed on a coffee plantation prior to the adventure and climbed with a local named Livingstone.
Get a guided visual tour of African snow and a little lesson about coffee grown near the top of Tanzania.
I’ll look forward to seeing you there.
