In Caffeine We Trust Poster

I just came across this amazing poster at columnfivemedia.com. The “In Caffeine We Trust” poster is an infographic print our customers can use for tracking their caffeine consumption. What better way to track your coffee intake then by using coffee as the ink to mark up this poster.

Brilliant idea and a beautiful execution.

Espresso Cup

illy espresso cup

We are in search of the perfect espresso cup. I’m really happy with our current Bodum pavina cups but I always have my eye open for other interesting or beautiful espresso cups. Not just any cup will do. It must be great looking and have the correct feel. Its also important that the cup not loose temperature too quickly as this would spoil your espresso.

Most espresso cups are made from porcelain. A nice thick cup can be brought up to temperature by filling it with boiling water before pulling a shot of espresso into it. A thick cup will hold its temperature for a while giving you a chance to enjoy your espresso with out having it cool off. Coffeegeeks.com has a great article about porcelain weight and thickness here.

 

Goliath Sportswear on Drop Coffee

Goliath sportswear has launched its “Attention to Detail” advertising campaign. They highlight “Drop Coffee” as the perfect place to get a “genius” cup of coffee. We love their website with beautifully done videos and some really well done user interface. There is even a layer of learning involved as they describe the process of making coffee. Be sure to check the site out here goliathsportswear.com
