64 STiR tea & coffee industry international DUBAI, UAE – Coffee originated in the Middle East and inspired paintings and tapestries and legends featuring centu- ries-old brass urns, braziers and artifacts. Imagine the delight when visiting cof- fee lovers are invited to hold the original silver and brass urns, utensils, grinders and ornate cups in hand. Khalid Al Mulla, director of Eastern- men & Co., envisioned an innovative, dynamic, interactive setting to share his collection of coffee accessories from ev- ery culture and spanning centuries. His dream to create a coffee museum within the narrow streets of the old city in Dubai is realized this month. Displays are richly authentic with costumed staff to explain the history and various methods of coffee making from the earliest Ibrik to the modern Japanese Syphon. A centerpiece is a magnificent silver Egyptian charcoal fired burner that greets visitors entering the main floor. "By the late 15th century and early 16th century, coffee had spread to Cairo. There charcoal headed a bed of sand. New museum celebrates Bedouin coffee culture online and in old town Dubai Coffee Museum By Dan Bolton
