While I do love a coffee photo I can almost taste and smell (see previous project at Coffee|Served Daily), I have to admit, hand drawn coffee makes more sense. It just seems to be more craft compatible. Sources and Credits: 1. A Loss of Thought 2, 3, 4. draw coffee5, 6. Paul Westcombe

Quite honestly, much of the new and groovy coffee packaging is starting to look the same to me. There’s not much I love more than well-rendered type, but I think I am ready for a fresh new idea. I don’t know that I am ready for a new beverage (coffee will always be my go-to drinking partner), but I love these designs (via the Dieline).
Emporio Tea. Designed by Inject Design, Wellington, New Zealand
Just T. Design by Atelier Christian von der Heide.
Fortis Brandy. Designed by Parallax Design
And my favorite…
Beer label design by Bedow for Mikkeller. “This Wild Winter Ale is the fourth in a series of four seasonal beers released during 2012. The label is printed with a heat sensitive color — when the label gets warm the apple tree loses its leaves. Limited to 3,500 bottles.” Brilliant.

Some delightful packaging for Irish company, Cavistons, from illustrator Steve Simpson. While I do love the restrained typographic designs that seem to be part of today’s coffee branding, I love a fresh cup even more. If I had one of these disposable cups, I promise I would keep it.
