“Coffee Time” living history program
October 8, 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
One event on October 8, 2022 at 10 a.m.
On Friday, October 7, and Saturday, October 8, from 10 a.m. to noon, and again from 1 to 3 p.m. join Fort Gibson Historic Site staff as they present a program all about coffee which will follow the process of bringing the coffee beans from the tree to the mug. Learn what coffee varietals were available in the 19th century and see the equipment used to process and brew coffee.
In the history of this nation, there has been one item universally important to soldiers and civilians alike and that is the coffee bean. Utilized in medicines, ceremonies, and foods as well as the one thing many of us reach for at the start of our day.
