The Story of Coffee at Southern Food & Beverage Museum in New Orleans. Do you love coffee and its culture? Then, don’t miss this place.
New Orleans has a lot of interesting places and museums, result of a long and legendary history. But Yareah loves particularly Southern Food & Beverage Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the discovery, and understanding of the food, drink and culture of the South of USA. They opened their doors on June 7, 2008 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Anyway and although the museum is in New Orleans, it celebrates all of the cultures that have come together through the centuries to create the South unique culinary heritage. Really different and of course, tasteful!
They have permanent exhibits and every year, they have different events and shows.
Among its permanent exhibits, we would highlight The Story of Coffee. The exhibition explores Coffee in Louisiana, from those days of steamships that braved the Mississippi river to bring exquisite coffee to the city of New Orleans from the tropics to our present. Because New Orleans remains the first coffee port in the USA and USA is the first coffee consuming nation in the world.
Definitely, if you love coffee, don’t miss this museum, Yareah friends. It’s worth!
