DaCosta travels around the world to locate premium fair trade and organic food products from olive oil to chocolate, tea, and coffee. He’ll explain the differences between Arabica and Robusta coffees and show you which brewing method to use for the perfect cup, plus how to taste for aroma, flavor, and acidity. Participants will have an opportunity to taste coffees from Brazilian and Colombian regions.
