The Birth of Coffee

Every morning, people throughout the world wake up thinking about a simple cup of coffee. But for 25 million of those people, coffee isn’t just a part of their morning routine, it’s the whole of their workday.

In The Birth of Coffee, Daniel Lorenzetti and Linda Rice Lorenzetti explore coffee’s impact on the people of coffee-growing nations on four continents. Through eloquent text and evocative photographs toned with the actual beverage, the Lorenzettis capture the places where coffee is more than a simple pleasure, but a force in politics, economics and history.

From the cloud-covered farms in Colombia to the rugged mountains of Indonesia and the bustling markets of Yemen, visitors to the exhibit will find themselves immersed in landscapes dominated by the coffee industry: roads lined with beans, trails to distant fields, and wild forests of coffee trees.

This startling look at coffee will strike visitors with the beauty and substance of the worlds and peoples behind a simple cup of coffee.

The Birth of Coffee is organized by The Image Expedition.
