Texas A&M University Coffee Club

Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
TAMU Coffee Club, TCC
Purpose:
The TAMU Coffee Club aims to educate members, students, as well as the community about the coffee industry from planting and growing coffee to brewing the perfect cup. The coffee industry is complex and there are many opportunities to help improve the lives of farmers who do not have a voice to express their daily struggles or unfair compensation. The Coffee Club plans to work closely with nonprofits to raise funds in order to improve the lives that are essential in the industry, but not treated so. While there are a variety of competitions in the coffee industry, they are among professionals and if possible, we want to establish Texas A&M University in these competitions by training and sending members to compete. While there is not a formally established collegian coffee community, one is underway and we aim to pioneer it. As part of educating club members we plan to raise funds for scholarships so that students may study abroad and gain a hands on experience in every step of coffee production.
