Jura Coffee World - a Coffee Museum in Switzerland
Ever wondered how a coffee bean feels when it is made to pass through a coffee machine ?
Not the feeling, but what a machine looks like from the inside is what you can see, when you walk through this museum, which is built like the inside of a coffee machine!
From the discovery of the coffee plant by the shepherds of Ethiopia, the use of the drink by the monks and Sufis, the modern coffee export and politics around coffee vs tea in the States and how coffee found its way into the European society, after the Turks were defeated in Austria and left loads of coffee bean sacks behind- all of it presented interactively in this museum, fascinating and interesting for young and old. In one section you can hear stories and rumors around legendary drink.
This museum appeals to children and adults. Photography is not allowed inside the museum, except a sponsored picture with a carton presentation of Federer, who is an ambassador of JURA coffee machines!
You can top the visit off with a snack/meal and/or drink at the restaurant and buy coffee related stuff at the shop. The restaurant can also be rented for occasions.
Searching for a short outing for a wet and cold day: visit this museum; the tour takes about 1 -1,5 hrs
