“Many elements go into producing a great cup of coffee, but coffee is actually 98 percent water. Without great water, you can’t have great coffee,” said Judi Cogen, the event director for the Cincinnati Coffee Festival . “It’s a great opportunity to educate people about the importance of protecting our local rivers and streams, so that we can ensure clean water for all.”
