Coffee Apparel.

Author: george Posted: January 7, 2009

Fresh off the press.

I’ve been trying to get this thing printed for over a month, and it finally got done. The image is pretty self explanatory – what it means is up to you to decide. I designed it and had it printed at a t-shirt store (the dog’s ear) right by crema. Printed on a 3/4 Baseball Tee, American Apparel of course.

I wore it during work on Monday and lots of customers commented on it, (more than I thought would have) which was cool – not only because they liked it but also because it doubles as conversation about french press, which is always a good thing.

More designs on the way – and more posts. (I slacked in December, I apologize.)

    those 3/4 sleeves are a must at work.

    ditto on the ‘if you’re selling’ , I’d happily get one and sport it at JJ on main

    hey guys – thanks for the compliments. I am considering selling to people who want one, but to do that I’ll have to sort out a bunch of little details.

    I’ll think about it over the weekend and update on Monday and figure out what the best way to go about it would be. If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to email me at george(at)cleanhotdrydotcom

    @sherwood I noticed Cafe Myriad’s new blog has a drawing of a french press on top. Just coincidental, but pretty funny.

    @ Tyler that shirt already exists, I have it and it’s awesome. http://www.espressoparts.com/product/BXTEE1_VIVA/Barista_Exchange_Viva_Barista_TShirt.html

    Finally made my way across the Lions Gate yesterday to visit your den. I’m glad I made the trip, great cafe! It reeks of familiarity with all the same jj equipment, but you guys have taken it to a better level of… personality.

    Had a fine triage of drinks served, and some tasty baked goods. Everyone (staff at least) was polite and aweseome.

    I didn’t realize you package up the beans in custom bags/labels. Wish we could upgrade our class like that.

    Hope to be back soon
