Re-thinking Coffee at College

In an effort to reduce single-use cups, Brewed Awakenings (the College’s coffee station located in Alfond Hall) now offers free coffee to students and employees who bring their own reusable cups. Faculty and staff members are also offered free coffee in Pearson’s Dining Hall if they bring a reusable cup. This initiative aims at reducing the number of individual coffee-makers operating in offices across campus and efforts are underway to eliminate all K-Cup Pods, which are not only expensive but are extremely harmful to the environment. By offering coffee in communal spaces, students and colleagues are encouraged to step away from their desks for a short break, stretch, and fuel up!
