Illinois (I-Newswire) January 21, 2014 - Every cup of coffee we buy and drink connects us with a web of hidden stories around the world. In this global age, a new exhibit at The Kenosha Public Museum Wisconsin explores the important question: What is the true story behind one of the world's most widely traded commodities?

"Coffee: The World in Your Cup" is a nationally touring exhibit now on display in Kenosha Wisconsin. The exhibit provides a broad overview of the powerful influence of coffee on environments, human cultures, and economies worldwide.

Highlights of Coffee: The World in Your Cup include:

-Color photographs of farms from South America to Africa to the Pacific Islands that tell the global story of coffee cultivation and trade

-Four short videos featuring different aspects of the coffee industry, including a look at migratory birds in shade grown coffee regions
