TIE-IN TALK: Sustainably Sourced Coffee from Latin America

August 24 @ 6:30 pm


Inside the Gallery or on Front Porch (depending on weather)


Join us on Thursday evenings for engaging talks with local experts on a variety of fascinating topics related to the exhibition on view. We discuss topics linked to what’s in the gallery and bring it out into the community!

About the Talk:
Have you always wanted to learn more about where the coffee we serve comes from? Then join Tim Whitson, Head Roster at Firelight Coffee, to learn more about some of the close-knit partnerships they have built with coffee suppliers and farmers throughout Latin America and the coffee profiles unique to this region. These partnerships play an essential role in their commitment to economic and social sustainability by promoting agency to those for whom it is most often lacking.

About the Speaker:
Tim Whitson was the Head Roaster at Firelight Coffee and recently moved into the position of Director of Coffee. His expanded role includes managing the roasting team, sourcing coffees, and making sure that quality and sustainability standards are met. Tim has a passion for coffee that has grown out of his experience traveling the world and encountering how this unique beverage brings people together – whether it’s in a cafe over a cup of freshly brewed coffee or across the world as farmers partner with importers and roasters to make coffee accessible to us all.

Firelight Coffee was started in 2014 by two good friends with a goal to make specialty coffee open to everyone. Firelight’s focus has remained constant with a focus on sourcing the best and most interesting coffees and making them accessible to anyone, not just coffee aficionados. Every coffee Firelight buys has an expanding set of benchmarks we check for around environmental sustainability, equitable trade and farming, community impact, and more. Looking ahead, Firelight plans to grow their presence by partnering with more amazing wholesale partners and cafes, while continuing to give the best coffees and value to our subscribers and online community.
