Pictured is the future home of the U.C. Davis Coffee Center. Located in the Arboretum within walking distance of the Robert Mondavi Institute of Wine and Food Science, this 6000 square feet building was built in 2006 and contains several high-bay laboratories perfect for housing a working coffee roastery. The founding donation from Peet's Coffee will allow one of the rooms to be renovated into a Pilot Roastery. We envision other rooms will house a variety of experimental spaces dedicated to coffee, as described in the Director's Letter and shown in the draft floorplan below.
