SK, Krusetnica – An ORavian Village Veiled in the Aroma of Coffee

Published: 10.10.2018
Today we are heading to the Namestovo district, where the picturesque Krusetnice village spans at the confluence of the White Orava River and the Klinianka Stream. The village surrounded by the Podbeskydy Highlands invites visitors to a tour of traditional houses, a beautiful Baroque church and even a ski resort. Yet we today will take you to a unique museum where you smell the irresistible aroma of coffee.

Oravakafe, Krušetnica

Before we visit the museum, let's say something from the history of this Orava village. The first written mention dates back to 1593. Both the surrounding villages and Krusetnica were administered by the Orava estate, its inhabitants mainly devoted to land management, mining, basketry or domestic production of cloth. As far as architecture is concerned, there were represented unique dolnooravian type woods, which gradually replaced masonry houses. But even the little that remains is definitely worth admiration. The village boasts two important natives, and Dr. P. Florek and A. Granatier, who belonged to important Slovak politicians of the first half of the 20th century.

However, our goal was to visit the Museum of Coffee, which we have long heard of from friends or the media. A few dozens of meters from the parish church of St. Michael is a renovated house in which the Oravakafe exposition is situated.

Once you get in, the story of the coffee bean begins from the beginning to the delicious end. The individual walls of the exposition are made of mosaic. And it is some mosaic! It is the largest coffee bean mosaic in the world with a map of the world with coffee growing areas, a portrait of Josef Augustin coffee expert and other thematic motifs. The mosaic was awarded a certificate from Slovakia, and soon there will be a record in the Guinness Book of World Records. In addition to the beautifully decorated walls, you can see old mills, coffeemakers, cups, cups and much more related to coffee. In one of the rooms there is also a roaster where you can buy and possibly give a bunch of quality coffee or have fun buying souvenirs in the form of magnets, mugs and other things. At the entrance to the museum, a world map hangs out, marking the places where the visitors came from.

While walking through individual rooms, you will see many interesting things. It took 4 years to construct the museum. The Indonesan ambassador became the patron of the museum. It took 2 years and 7 months to finish the largest mosaic in the world made of coffee beans which would last for 60 thousand cups of coffee. The mosaic covers 107 square meters and the total weight of its 4 milion coffee beans is 400 kilograms. We also learned that the oldest exhibit is 200 years old, with more than 550 exhibits, the number of which is constantly growing. We have been shown samples of the most expensive coffee in the world and a sympathetic guide to answering all our inquiring questions. The only thing we could say about the museum is that you can not give coffee after the tour. But we have been reassured that he is already working on this to make the Oravakafe visit experience perfect.

The entire museum came to be thanks to the enthusiasm of Roman Florec, who rewrote his passion for coffee into a dream. Thanks to him you can come and see the story of the coffee we enjoy every day.
