It all started when three students joined together with three common interests: exploring the great outdoors, serving their community and a love of all things coffee. The result? The Adventure, Service, Coffee Club.
Last spring, Don Cox, owner of local coffee shop Bald Guy Brew, taught a class all about coffee, including topics such as different tasting methods and the social implications of the coffee trade. This class inspired senior management major Baylen Burleson, sophomore interdisciplinary studies major Sean Allen and junior global studies and sustainable development double major Brenna Martin to spend their summer helping Cox improve his business and get an inside look into the coffee industry.
