North Central's Coffee Lab is one of a few collegiate facilities of its kind in the United States. However, it is the first laboratory with a primary focus on the business of coffee!
"Our focus is on the business of coffee, which is unique from other coffee labs. Our goal is to engage students across a multitude of disciplines: Marketing, management, accounting, entrepreneurship, engineering, anthropology and sociology, to name a few." -Jim McDermet M '92, North Central College Trustee and Board Chair and former senior vice president, global and Americas operations, Starbucks Corporation
