Drink and Think: Celebrate National Coffee Day

As I sat down at my computer, coffee in hand, fellow MVCC librarian, Liz Garcia (who also had her coffee in hand), mentioned she heard today was National Coffee Day.  If you love this drink made from exquisite, tasty, dark-roasted beans as much as we do, why not use today as a good excuse to enjoy a nice, hot cup of joe while learning a little bit about coffee’s history, science, and/or impact on the world today.  Cheers!
