One thing I’ve come to love about coffee is the amount of collaboration that takes place, and the combination of “efforts” that make up each cup. From the relentless care and passion of the farmers all the way up to the last drop from a kettle, the coffee that ends up in my cup has been through many different hands all over the world.
So, today, I wanted to show that. I felt like my doodles had been getting a little bit centered on an individual roaster or company, rather than the collaborative industry I’ve come to know coffee as.
I’ve had two different coffees today – Passion House Coffee’s Rwanda Buf, and Tonx’s Tanzania Mpito – made using two different brewing methods – Chemex and Aeropress. I used a Baratza Maestro to grind it up, a Bonavita kettle to pour water over it through a Kaffeologie filter, straight into a Dear Coffee, I Love You Keep Cup.
