For the last two months, I’ve had the privilege of interning with the guys over at Sprudge. Each week, I doodle up a little doodle, and provide a brief recap stew of stories from around the world of coffee.
It’s been a really great experience, and Sprudge has been amazing to work with. You can check out all my recaps right here.
This week’s doodle is a shout out to Cafe Imports and the gang of 2012 US Regional Barista Champions who just got back from running around Costa Rica, learning about coffee and having an amazing experience. If you do anything on Instagram this week, go check Sprudge and the #KostaFreaka hashtag—there were some amazing pictures coming out of Costa Rica.

I recently spent a week in London visiting some amazing coffee spots—in all, I must have found upwards of 15 shops that did a great job.
More on the entire experience later (be on the lookout for a short write up on Sprudge), but for now here’s the first round of filter doodles inspired by some of the shops.

I started this website last January because I loved to draw, and I loved coffee, and I wanted to learn more about both. A lot of the Draw Coffee project has simply been about the creative inspiration that surrounds coffee, as well as a visual way to learn more about it.
As it turns out, I’m not the the only one who loves coffee and loves to draw. Last year, a talented illustrator released a book that many of you have heard about, read, seen, or even own—A-Z Coffee.
Lars Huse’ illustrations in the book are absolutely fantastic, and give the book a unique and intimate feel. His coffee artwork isn’t limited to the book, as Lars has been doodling and drawing about it for some time now. Lars runs his own Illustration operation fittingly named “Illustration and Coffee.”
You can check out more of Lars’ impressive work on his portfolio—be sure to grab a copy of the A-Z Coffee book too, it’s a fun read with awesome illustrations.
I’m excited to feature a recent filter doodle Lars did for this site—inspired by Espressini, a local shop Lars visits in Falmouth, UK. The filter features brew methods of all sorts, and coffees from Has Bean, Workshop, and Kaffa.
Thanks to Lars for the awesome drawing.
