By now you all know that we use the term “coffee” loosely. With a variety of gatherings held around the state, you’ll find that each event is different, and you could experience anything from bowling or whiskey tasting to hiking and picnicking (and yes, coffee and cocktails) somewhere in your vicinity. This is the event that brings us “home” to our Duke experience even though we’re 1,600 miles from campus.  Be on the lookout for exact dates and locations coming soon.
