An exhibition on the history of the world’s coffee industry opened on March 9 at the Coffee World Museum in Buon Ma Thuot city in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak.

More than 10,000 objects and pictures highlighting the development of the coffee industry over stages from the ancient time to medieval and feudal periods and at present are put on display.

Typical objects could be named as manual and electric coffee grinders and filters, coffee roasting machines, and automatic coffee selling machines.

Meanwhile, pictures on show depict the scenes of farmers’ harvesting coffee and people’s enjoying coffee.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Vo Van Canh said the eight-day exhibition, the first of its kind in Dak Lak, aims to spread the quintessence of Buon Ma Thuot-branded coffee.

The Coffee World Museum has been an ideal place for coffee lovers to explore the global coffee culture, he added.
