The Science of Coffee at Kala Ghoda Arts Festival



The Science of Coffee at Kala Ghoda Arts Festival

When we think of Italy, the first things that come to mind are the delicious food and wine and the rich cultural heritage. This presentation at KGAF will explore that intricate weave of science, know-how,history, tradition and innovation found in Italian cuisine. These elements so impeccably combine to create a common product, simple yet complex. Take coffee for example. Through constant experimentation and a never-ending quest to enhance its quality,the Italians have transformed the act of coffee-making into a true art form. Robusta and Arabica will be the protagonists in a laboratory that will demonstrate how the Quest for Taste has resulted in original and sometimes curious reinterpretations of this berry’s use. Moka, napoletana and espresso will be the focus of our discussion and the audience will be stimulated by those aromas and flavours characteristic of the Bel Paese. The workshop will be presented by Emanuele Bargelli (in the picture). He has a degree in chemistry and has worked with the Festival della Scienza since 2004. Mr. Bargelli organizes up to eighty events annually for the Festival, among those most notable is Sapori di Scienza – Scienza in cucina, which attracts 13.000 visitors each year. He won the first national competition Parlar di chimica and has organized several events; he is also often a guest on Italian State network (RAI).
