I “met” with my virtual exchange students today for our monthly cultural enhancement activity. Using Zoom, a friend and local business owner gave my Ukrainian and Kyrgyzstani virtual exchange students a complete tour.
In about an hour, we received a quick lesson in the world of coffee. We learned about importation, coffee bean roasting, packaging, taste testing–and our favorite: the fine art of drawing designs in a latte.
I’ve known the owners of this business for about twenty-two years; we are close friends. Thanks to COVID and my virtual exchange students’ interest in the coffee, I, too, learned a lot this morning. Silver lining!
