To all who may have crossed our paths this year, whether it was over a cup of coffee, a beer or more than likely a cocktail, we are hitting our one your anniversary. Thats right, we are turning ONE YEAR OLD. In baby terms we have just started crawling, we have learnt so much in such a short space of time. We are looking forward to the future when we learn how to walk, then run and possibly jump. What we are trying to say is that, this is just the beginning, we are looking forward to a vibrant, creative future.
This show shall celebrate a year in the life of our tiny coffee bar based in Shoreditch at 18 Hewett Street. Over the past year we have tasted up to 300 different coffees, what started out as an OCD idea to collect every single coffee bag consumed in order to creative a visual map of the coffee belt has escalated into so much more. Coupled with the information provided by our coffee counting visualisation, we have created endless fun facts regarding our coffee consumption trends. From the total volume of coffees made, milk used, caffeine extracted and even distance travelled in the serving of these beverages. We have asked our artistic friends and associates to visualise this information in a fun abstract poster format which will be presented for your eyes only.
A special thanks to Bruno Vincent for all his amazing efforts, support, ideas, friendship and finally the curation of this event.
All welcome to join us over a beverage next Friday the 7th of December.
Really great project I worked on with Has Bean Coffee out of England. Three different varietals of coffee, grown on the same farm in Nicaragua, and their unique characteristics and differences. Fascinating.
