This post is for readers and friends who are interested in learning about coffee. Temasek Polytechnic's Centre for TransCultural Studies, in collaboration with their exhibition partners, Coffee Artist Maria Filatova, Dutch Colony Coffee and Santino Coffee Specialists, will be presenting an exhibition titled 'Coffee Culture Conversations' at the Art Gallery @ Glocal Connect Village, from 17 Sep 2015 to 28 Oct 2015.

"In this exhibition, The Art Gallery @ GCV celebrates coffee as a centuries-old culture, with diverse social practices, characteristics and values evolving into the exciting global phenomenon this day. It brings to the learning space in GCV the science and art of a commodity that is second only to oil in its importance to world trade. This curated exhibition at the gallery will bring a deeper understanding of coffee, from its history and origins to intriguing stories from religion to politics to revolutions, from the science of growing, harvesting and processing to the art of roasting, grinding and flavour pairing.

Thanks to one of my friends, I got to learn about this exhibition and the coffee workshops that were organized in conjunction with this exhibition. I had signed up for and attended one of the workshops. The Latte Art workshop that I had signed up for is catered to members of the general public, including people with no prior barista knowledge and skills. The workshop is worth a good consideration. Special thanks to the trainers for an enriching class and for their patience.

The exhibition came across to me as visually pleasing and offered an introduction to coffee from the science of growing, harvesting and processing to the art of roasting and more.

While I prefer to read about coffee than to learn about coffee through an exhibition because I prefer learning at my own pace over a longer period of time, I think anyone curious to learn more about coffee could consider checking this exhibition out especially if one is nearby the Temasek Polytechnic.

Coffee Art. Beautiful works.
