Peter shares his coffee expertise at the Culinary Institute of America as part of a new educational partnership.2-15-08

We’re excited to announce our new partnership with The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, NY. The partnership will create a cutting-edge coffee curriculum for the world’s premier culinary college’s baking and pastry arts program!

The first stage of the partnership includes the launch of a new espresso and single-origin French press program for the CIA’s Apple Pie Bakery Café; a coffee lecture series featuring Counter Culture and specialty coffee industry experts; and the implementation of a new, intensive coffee education curriculum for the school.

The same coffee expertise that will guide some of the world’s top food professionals through this partnership goes into our Education classes—click here for more information!

Sincerely,
Nathan
