The Birth of Coffee brewing at Discovery Place

If you are one of the 500 million coffee drinkers in the world, chances are you have a good appreciation for the wonderful aroma that wakes you up every morning. But do you know what it takes to fill your cup? The Birth of Coffee, a photographic exhibit, takes a look at people around the world who grow and produce coffee.

Based on author Linda Rice Lorenzetti and photographer Daniel Lorenzetti's book, The Birth of Coffee, the exhibit shows pictures and tells tales spanning four continents making stops in Ethiopia, Yemen, Costa Rica and other locales. The exhibit will be on display until January 7, 2013. For more information visit Discovery Place or Birth of Coffee for more information.
