New Exhibit at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum:
The Story of Coffee in New Orleans

The Southern Food and Beverage Museum opened a new exhibit, Then and Now: The Story of Coffee. This exhibit, the first in a series, explores the importation of coffee to the Port of New Orleans as well as early companies, such as Community Coffee Company, which roasted and sold the beans.  Future exhibits will include the heritage companies that imported the beans and information about how coffee shaped the Port of New Orleans.

Artifacts on display include coffee grinders, a coffee roaster, the history of Chicory and many artifacts on loan from the Community Coffee Company including coffee sacks, catalogs, coffee sieves, sample containers, a cupping table and a spittoon used when cupping coffee, demitasse, and café brulot.

"Coffee has economic and cultural importance in Louisiana," said Liz Williams, President of SoFAB, "and we want to explore its many facets."

Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 2 p.m. Community® Coffee's Brian Girardot is leading a workshop on coffee brewing fundamentals at French Market Fare. He will cover coffee basics and proper brewing techniques to make the best cup of coffee.

For more information on the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, this exhibit or French Market Fare please contact Kelsey Parris, operations manager at 504-569-0405 or   Kelsey@Southernfood.org.
