So What's the Deal With the Coffee Market? Our Director of Coffee and co-owner Peter Giuliano and Graphic Designer Katy Meehan explain.
When Peter G. and Katy Meehan, our talented new graphic designer, decided to collaborate on a project to communicate the changes afoot in the global coffee market to the specialty coffee community, we had no idea about the magical results they would achieve.
 
Aptly called a "comic service announcement" by our friends at Sprudge.com, the Counter Culture Comics debut, "So What's the Deal With the Coffee Market?" is available online as part of our Flickr stream. Click here for a slideshow.
 
Although originally intended for an audience of coffee professionals, we thought it might be of interest to everyone.
 
Best,
Mark
