Coffee Talk

The conversation is not only over coffee, but coffee is the conversation itself.

Part of its initiative to incite discussion about global affairs with young leaders in the community, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh has invited Intelligentsia’s co-founder and VP to speak about its involvement in the coffee trade process. Intelligentsia (my favorite coffee and soon will be yours too if it isn’t already) practices direct trade with a seed to cup collaboration with coffee farmers all over the world.

In addition, sample coffee from around the globe provided by Aldo Coffee, meet other like-minded individuals, and learn more about the World Affairs Council. The event will take place on Wednesday, March 24th from 6-8pm at the Firehouse Lounge in the Strip District. Tickets are limited, so register soon! We participated in the council-hosted Beer Summit during the G20, which sold out in only a few days. In my book, coffee is just as essential as beer, so I am sure this will be a success too.
