Coffee Talks are meetings between faculty and graduate students from different academic departments within the University of Colorado, Boulder. At each meeting, one researcher presents his or her recent work in progress in an informal, constructive atmosphere that allows the speaker to receive critical feedback from faculty in other fields. In addition, the audience is provided an opportunity to learn about critical research being done in other departments.

Recent Coffee Talk topics have included climate change, models in historical science, origin of life, science and religion, and biology education.
