CAMDEN — It is easy for coffee consumers to forget that a daily cup is an agricultural product that often travels a complicated path, according to Merryspring Nature Center, in a news release.
In a presentation titled “Coffee: From Crop to Cup,” Rock City Coffee’s Meredyth 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 people can be more ethical in their consumption.
The presentation takes place Tuesday, March 3, at 12 p.m., at Merryspring Nature Center.
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 roastery 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 at this crucial point in time for consumers.
This lecture is part of the Winter Talk series at Merryspring, sponsored by Allen Insurance and Financial.
Admission to Tuesday talks is $5, with free admission for members of Merryspring.
Merryspring is a community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round.
The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
