COFFEE: THE WORLD IN YOUR CUP

Open through August 29, 2014 (included in Museum Admission)
Exhibition Reception: Thursday, May 29 at 5:30 pm 

South Florida Museum presents Coffee: The World in Your Cup, an exhibit that tells the story of one of the world’s most widely traded commodities and how it has affected cultures, economies, and environments across the globe.  On view from May 27, 2014 to August 29,2014, Coffee explores the environmental and social impacts of the coffee industry and recommends ways for consumers to make socially and environmentally responsible coffee purchases at the grocery store or in a coffee shop.  Learn about the impacts of caffeine, the world’s most commonly-used drug, on your body, discover coffee’s early controversial reputation as a “revolutionary drink,” and consider the culture that surrounds coffee in the twenty-first century.  Photos, maps, text, selected artifacts, audiovisual presentations, and hands-on demonstrations help visitors explore the fascinating world behind the coffee we drink. Coffee: The World in Your Cup has been organized by the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle, Washington. 

Please note: the exhibition will not be open this weekend as previously advertised due to a delay in shipment delivery. We apologize for any confusion. The exhibition will open on Tuesday, May 27 with the Exhibition Reception to follow on Thursday, May 29 at 5:30 pm.)
