A simple cup of coffee: Millions of people greet the morning, take a break, or end a meal with this dark brew. In these brief moments, coffee's rich flavor and deep aroma are simple pleasures unquestioningly accepted, although few of us ever consider the origins of this evermore popular beverage.
The Birth of Coffee documents coffee’s extraordinary journey from seed to cup. The photography exhibition, based on the book of the same name by Daniel Lorenzetti and Linda Rice Lorenzetti, chronicles the lives of coffee growers in Brazil, Ethiopia, Yemen, Guatemala, Indonesia, Colombia, Costa Rica and Kenya. Black-and-white photographs specially toned in and with coffee are interwoven with eclectic anecdotes and facts, bringing to life the stories of the diverse people who pick, plant and produce coffee.
