In a public lecture scientists de-mystify the science behind coffee.

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?

After the lecture, 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.
