The traveling exhibition Cosmos Coffee offers an informative,
sensory and entertaining experience for diverse audience groups.
It reveals how the individual enjoyment of coffee is embedded in
a cosmos of dynamic interdependencies between biology,chemistry, technology, economics, and cultural history.
The everyday appeal of coffee and the stimulating exhibits make
Cosmos Coffee a unique attraction for visitors of all ages and
Coffee is one of the most traded commodities in the world.
From cultivation and trade to processing and consumption,
coffee connects millions of people around the globe.
Although many of us drink coffee every day, we know surprisingly
little about this multifaceted and fascinating beverage.
The exhibition presents historical developments, informs about
technological and scientific advancements and offers insights into
the current issues facing one of our favorite drinks.
At the heart of the exhibition are the manifold interdependencies
inherent in coffee: a natural product, yet highly engineered and
economized; handicraft-based, yet a globalized mass product;
a social lubricant, yet also a means of distinction; a source of
everyday pleasure, yet a culturally charged consumer good with
a revolutionary social history.
“Cosmos Coffee takes the visitor on
a sensory and emotional journey, enabling a deeper understanding of
the complexities behind coffee.” – Dr. Nina Möllers, Curator –
