The World Forestry Center invites visitors to fuel their caffeine addiction with Coffee Fair on Saturday and Sunday, November 2 & 3 from 10am-3pm.

This special event celebrates the world’s most popular drink in all its forms: espresso, lattes, even the plain ol’ Cup O’ Joe.

Admission to Coffee Fair is only $5 and also includes admittance to the Discovery Museum showcasing its newest exhibit, “Nature’s Beloved Son: Rediscovering John Muir’s Botanical Legacy.”

The World Forestry Center hopes to educate coffee consumers about where their coffee comes from and how it is produced. Visitors can expect a total immersion in Northwest coffee culture through savoring and sipping coffees from around the globe from a variety of Pacific Northwest premier roasters and coffee-related vendors. Coffee tasting has become an art, some say surpassing wine in chemical complexity. Visitors are encouraged to discover new favorite coffees then meet the skilled and knowledgeable craftsmen who roast them.

Coffee Fair is sponsored in part by: K&F Coffee Roasters, Mr Green Beans, The Oregonian, and KINK 101.9 FM.

The World Forestry Center is a 501(c)(3) non profit educational organization dedicated to teaching about the world’s forests, trees and environmental sustainability. The museum is located in Portland’s beautiful Washington Park and is open every day from 10am- 5pm. Admission for Coffee Fair is $5 for everyone and available at the door. The museum is five minutes from downtown Portland, just off Hwy 26 and is also accessible by MAX light rail line.

    After years of wine tasting, I have recently begun to develop my coffee palette. While I’m still in the beginning phases (picking out more robust flavors like chocolate, fruity, winey), I hope this event can help me hone my new coffee cupping skills!

    Oh, I would just LOVE to take my parents (aka my beat friends) to this event! We, collectively, have had a serious love for coffee for many years now. Where some parents drink wine and invite their children into the “club” when they come of age, coffee has always been our drink of choice. It brings us together and is at the center of all of our family gatherings!

  32. Melissa October 29, 2013 at 12:48 am #

    Coffee has fueled my life. Coffee has always been there when no one else was. Coffee is a peace offering that could bring world peace!

  33. Allie October 29, 2013 at 9:18 am #

  39. Donna October 30, 2013 at 10:28 pm #

    We would love to go and take our daughter and hubby since we are all coffee lovers! We also really have admired John Muir and all he did in his lifetime to encourage and support wilderness areas and his work with forming some of the national parks, especially Yosemite. In addition, I think I should win the tickets because its my birthday this weekend! :)

  40. Lily October 31, 2013 at 1:40 am #
