Look, let’s be honest, coffee may be the most important item in a teacher’s arsenal. For those of you that do not enjoy coffee, or feel I am being hyperbolic, please consider what your school would be like if your colleagues didn’t have their daily dose. Terrifying, isn’t it? Even those of you who do not partake get to reap the benefit of a happily caffeinated work force.
In an effort to move forward on the SITE Food for Thought zine, I have started a thread on this magical elixir here. As we’ve not done a lesson on food just yet, this particular outline is a bit of an experiment. It’s definitely lighthearted, but also involves responsible shopping, buying locally when possible and the health benefits and risks of more-than-moderate consumption.
As I was both a coffee-jerk in college, and have also produced a documentary on a local coffee company with CET’s George “cup of” Joe Miller and his brother, Reid (full video in the thread, trailer below), I’ve got a lot of thoughts and ideas on the subject. However, for most coffee drinkers, their preferences and such are personal. I’d love to hear about your morning rituals, methods of making, and other means of intake.
