CAFFIENDS: Take Out
''Take Out' is the first from the CAFFIENDS collection, inspired as it was by Starbucks insistance on asking customers queuing up to get on first name terms. Hilariously, my wife didn't want to give her real name, so she gave another. Then when the barista shouted it out, she didn't recognise it until it went cold.
It got me thinking about 'Coffee Identities' more broadly, and how people seem to like there being a caffeine product among the 100s on the cafe menu that really defines who they are. When you are buying three or more every day in the urban grind, it's an identity that people begin to identify with.
It's just a bit of fun though - a range of 16 identities (with barista notes) on a coffee-stain vintage canvas design. Including, 'Extra Hot & Skinny' (free danish, or anything); 'The Shoreditch Snifter' (dry unfiltered coffee) - so cool that it contains no water; 'Truckdriver's Expresso' (with 12 expresso doubleshots) - just bring your truck round the back and I'll start to pump...; or 'The Banker's Nosebag' (with white powder sprinkles); and many more!
