This Portland museum has a temporary exhibit called “Coffee, The World in Your Cup”, which shows the history and processes involved in the coffee industry.   Three coffee paintings are included, and I got to have a booth in their Coffee Fair last weekend.  Attendees got to sample about 15 different coffee companies’ products and more coffee art.  If you’re in Portland, Oregon, stop in and learn a lot about coffee!  I was struck by how many people are involved with each bean that ends up in my cup.  Tons of hard and painstaking work; someone’s hand in Ethiopia or Guatemala or Brazil has touched and selected the very bean I grind up this morning for my cup, or dip my brush into for the next painting.  Thanks to each one for enabling me to enjoy coffee in so many ways!
