The New London Public Museum kicks off the 2013 Curiosity Series with a unique look at America’s favorite morning beverage, coffee.

A Taste of History, presented by Chole White, offers a historic retrospective of coffee production before the days of electricity and drive-thru Starbucks. Using primary sources, historic artifacts, period artworks and hands-on reproductions, the audience will discover not only the biology of the coffee plant but also the science behind roasting and brewing, the specialized tools used historically and the cultural significance of the beverage during the 18th century. A sample of historically roasted and prepared coffee will follow the presentation.
