If you have ordered from us in the past, you know we enjoy including postcards printed with information about coffee growing origins, processing or just general insights from our position in the coffee business. We are really proud of our latest one because it captures an aspect of one of Tom's photographic projects; shooting realistic macro photos of coffee beans. One of the most challenging aspects of this is how color and brightness can differ greatly between a photo and the real thing. The light you view you coffee with matters a lot too. Look how different your coffee (or anything else) looks when you open a window or turn on a light. This something any coffee roaster should consider if attempting to compare their roasts to any type of photos.
There are few visual characteristics that are less affected by lighting, like the amount of chaff left on the bean, the bean's texture and the appearance of cracks. The photos on the card show differences between three coffees that have undergone different processing methods. They were all roasted to the same level but have noticeably different looks to them.
If you are placing an order soon, you will get our new postcard in your package. If you aren't, you can download a digital version. CLICK HERE for the front and HERE for the back.
