There will be a little something caffeinated for all - or at least high-spirited - as Major shares his recently published book, Coffee for Dummies! Whether it's your java, joe, brew, café, café au lait, cappuccino, decaf, or decoction - it'll be up close, personal and fun!
D. Major Cohen '73
Major is a coffee lover who has enjoyed a dream realized. A teacher of photography and film at the high school level for 20 years, he grew up in a time when coffee went from a poor quality, inexpensive commodity to a ubiquitous and often delicious inexpensive luxury.
Coffee for Dummies
Kelly Redder is a coffee lover who has enjoyed a dream realized, too! Working in higher education for more than 30 years, Kelly has consumed approximately 6,825 gallons of coffee during her professional career - and about half that in the past year. The other half was consumed while raising funds to get the Joseph M. Lobozzo Alumni House built for RIT Tigers. It's by drinking coffee by the 20 oz. cup that Kelly feels most engaged and creative. And not too mention, inquisitive. Kelly is looking forward to roasting, er, interviewing Major Cohen about his latest initiative!
