About this Event:

Coffee is one of the world’s most widely consumed drinks, and its story has its roots in Ethiopia. As legend states, an Ethiopian goat herder by the name of Kaldi first discovered the potency of the coffee bean after observing his goats ‘dancing’ after chewing coffee cherries.

This session explores how coffee, first cultivated in the Arab world, spread around the globe. Discover where the word mocha comes from, explore the differences between coffee varieties from Asia, Africa, and the Americas and enjoy stories of the first British coffeehouses – including a famous one named Lloyds.
he event will also include tastings of several coffees and discussions on what influences their flavours.
