Research

research overview

  • Dr. Fischer's research focuses on the interactions between a people, a place, and a plant. It examines the ways in which ideas about what makes coffee good, and what makes good coffee, change across space and time. Her work takes a multi-sited approach that combines participant-observation within the specialty coffee industry and with coffee growers, particularly in the Orosi Valley of Costa Rica.
