This is the third and final episode of “Harnessing the Power of Science,” a session recorded at Re:co Symposium in April 2018. The main focus of this session was to learn about new developments in coffee science and explore how Specialty Coffee can engage with the scientific enterprise for the benefit of all of us. If you haven’t watched the preceding videos, we strongly recommend going back to watch them before you continue with this episode.

We are pleased to welcome the panel of Dr. Maya Zuniga, Supply Chain Optimization and Food Science Expert at S&D Coffee and Tea; Ed Price, Professor of Agricultural Economics and Howard G. Buffett Foundation Endowed Chair on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University; Bill Murray, President and CEO of the National Coffee Association; William Ristenpart, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Director of UC Davis Coffee Center; and Chahan Yeretzian, Professor of Analytical Chemistry, Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Diagnostics and Head of the Coffee Excellence Center at ZHAW.
