2- "Coffee for Two: Cultures in Dialogue" exhibition by FBQ Museums

Coffee for Two

The Coffee for Two – Cultures in Dialogue exhibition, opened Sunday at Katara – the Cultural Village, featuring a selection of around 50 artifacts that put a spotlight on the beverage as a universal language and symbol of generosity.

The exhibition Coffee for Two - Cultures in Dialogue takes a closer look at the history of the well-known brew with maps that track the coffee route. This is because there are numerous ways to prepare and drink coffee, such as some that are quick, some that are slow, some that include milk and sugar, some that are hot, and some that are cold.

The exhibition emphasizes both the historical development of coffee and its modernization. Comparing old photographs from the FBQ Museum's collection to recent images of people drinking coffee on the go demonstrates how tradition and knowledge are continually blending to create a culture of social engagement and sharing.
