Finland Researchers Experiment With Growing Coffee In A Lab

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

It's an effort to minimize the problems of coffee cultivation, like deforestation and exploited labor. Smithsonian Magazine reports that researchers have found a way to do without any cultivation. Researchers in Finland developed coffee grown in a lab, which they claim tastes OK. They celebrated this occasion with a coffee break. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
