WELCOME TO COSMOS COFFEE
Touring Exhibition by Deutsches Museum
Coffee is one of the most traded commodities around the globe. Its growth, trade, refinement and consumption connect millions of people. Nearly all of us drink it daily, but we often know very little about this multifaceted and fascinating beverage.
The traveling exhibition „Cosmos Coffee“ offers an informative, sensual and entertaining experience for diverse target groups and embeds the individual enjoyment of coffee in a cosmos of dynamic interdependencies of biology, chemistry, technology, economy and cultural history. Its reference to common rituals and a large variety of communication tools makes the exhibition a unique attraction for visitors of all ages and backgrounds.
„Where coffee is served, there is grace, splendour, friendship and happiness."
Ansari Djerzeri Hanball Abd-al-Kadir (16th century), Arab sheikh
COSMOS COFFEE APP

In the special exhibition "Cosmos Coffee", the Deutsches Museum approaches this versatile beverage from a scientific as well as a sensual perspective. In this book that accompanies the exhibition, renowned scientists from various disciplines shed light on the multi-faceted nature of "black gold" and its inherent contrasts. Coffee is a highly engineered and monetised natural product that is shipped around the world as a mass commodity some of which is produced by small businesses laboriously and by hand. In some countries, drinking coffee symbolises social status and in different cultures, coffee has even made social revolutionary history. This richly illustrated volume takes you on a pleasurable and surprising journey through "Cosmos Coffee".
