"Coffee: The World in Your Cup" exhibition at Burke Museum

Coffee: The World in Your Cup exhibition at Burke Museum is extended through September 7, 2009 before it's national tour due to a strong local Seattleites response.

What is it about?
Coffee: The World in Your Cup presents the story of one of the world's most widely traded commodities and how it has affected cultures, economies, and environments across the globe.

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 Tastings at the Burke
Each weekend during the run of the exhibit Coffee: The World in Your Cup, the Burke Museum and our partners offer coffee tastings.

Saturdays and/or Sundays 11 am – 2 pm
