Perhaps you’ve noticed something interesting about the vortices in your cup, or maybe you’re just curious about how latte art works: whatever your question, come along and discuss the physics of coffee (and the coffee of physics) at an evening of coffee and science at Amoret Coffee in Notting Hill.
The evenings are designed to be conversational, with small groups of up to 20 people coming together to discuss all things coffee… and science. Upcoming events are listed below, or if you’ve missed an event but would like to continue the conversation, you can visit the Virtual Coffee House on Facebook to continue discussing the topics of evenings past.
- Tuesday January 28th: From coffee brewing to the greenhouse effect:
The “greenhouse effect” was proposed, and given the name greenhouse effect, by Joseph Fourier in 1824 (yes, it is the same Fourier of the mathematical series). While the idea that increased carbon dioxide emissions would lead to an increase in global temperatures was suggested back in 1895 (and in fact even earlier). But how come this theory is so old? And what are the implications for our understanding of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect that is so topical at the moment? And, perhaps most importantly, what has any of this got to do with a coffee cup, for yes, it can be connected. Come along to find out more, sign up on FB here.
- March 2020: Topic (and date!) to be confirmed…
We look forward to meeting you soon at Amoret.
