Coffee in Space

9 August 2019 @ 4:00 pm6:00 pm

Free

The year is 2025, in Melbourne, Coffee Capital of the World.

The Space Agency managing Australia’s new international space station assembles a panel of scientists and coffee professionals to design a coffee-making process for space-travelling coffee connoisseurs.

Coffee-making in space, however, is a challenging proposition. How do you grind the coffee without coffee grounds flying everywhere? How does an astronaut drink a floating ball of hot coffee? What to do with dead coffee grounds? Is space-made coffee even drinkable?

In a public lecture scientists de-mystify the science behind coffee. After the event, members of the public are invited to taste and rate the different styles of coffee discussed and discover with the benefit of microscopes how the different shapes and sizes of coffee grinds affect taste.
