This fall, Peet’s Coffee and UC Davis are joining forces to become the leaders in coffee science. Thanks to a $250,000 pledge from Peet’s Coffee, the Coffee Center at UC Davis will house the Peet’s Coffee Pilot Roastery, which will be devoted to post-harvest coffee research and engineering. Bill Ristenpart, a UC Davis chemical engineering professor, will direct the Coffee Center alongside fellow faculty members Tonya Kuhl and Jean-Xavier Guinard. For a sweeter read, look no further than the fig, everyone’s favorite fruit. Did you know a fig is actually a ball of flowers?
