Don Holly

When: Wed., March 22, 12 p.m. 2017

For many of us, coffee is a much-needed part of the morning routine — but how much do we know about the background of this brewed beverage? Don Holly, a 30-year veteran of the coffee industry, schools java lovers on the drink’s past, present and future in the talk “Dark, Bitter, Sweet and Aromatic: A Social History of Coffee.” Drawing on his experience as a retailer, roaster and barista, Holly explores the outside forces — social, political and economic — that have influenced coffee drinking around the globe. A quick cupping gives listeners a jolt following this lecture delivered in conjunction with the Fleming Museum of Art’s exhibit “Imbibe: Drinking in Culture.”

Price: Regular admission, $3-10; free for members, faculty, staff, students, and kids 6 and under.
