The Life of a Coffee Seed Round II: The Flower. Click to order.

Caffe Vita commissioned local artist Robert Mercer to investigate the curious life of the coffee plant, from seedling to cherry ripe fruit. The result is a series of three limited edition t-shirts. We are excited to announce and release the second in the series: The Flower. Up next… The Cherry

Robert Mercer has drawn and designed many of the things we see daily in the Northwest, but we were deeply inspired by the illustrations he crafted for recording artists The Shins and their album Wincing The Night Away. We asked Robert to use a similar style of obsessive almost-psychedelic illustration while considering the life of a coffee seed. The result is three evocative prints that clearly tell the journey of the plant.

$15 for dark brown T
