On my mind recently is the intersection of specialty coffee, gender, and race. The newest issue of Barista Magazine is all about women in coffee. I was interviewed for one of the pieces and I’m humbled to say that conversation and action have already started. I encourage you to read and listen to what’s happening. I believe this industry is only at the beginning of enacting change. But I have confidence in the many empathetic souls in this community who will see this change through to the end.
