So What's the Deal With the Coffee Market? Our Director of Coffee and co-owner Peter Giuliano and Graphic Designer Katy Meehan explain.

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
