Inside the New UC Davis Coffee Center

The UC Davis Coffee Center is the world's first academic research center focused on coffee, aiming to do for coffee what UC Davis has done for beer and wine. Through its research, teaching and mentorship, the center plans to train the next generation of coffee professionals while improving the entire industry and making it more sustainable.

Folgers Coffee Partners with the UC Davis Coffee Center

The UC Davis Coffee Center, started in the chemical engineering department by professor Bill Ristenpart, is proud to announce a recent $500,000 gift from Folgers Coffee.

The Folgers Analytical Chemistry Lab will provide the first university infrastructure in the nation to address the unresolved questions around how certain molecules naturally present in coffee affect the final flavor profile of this beloved beverage.
