Alchemy of Coffee: 39 coffee drinks from around the world

SweeTooth Design Company was established from our love for food and design. We started "Alchemy of Tea" over two years ago, and Alchemy of Coffee takes on a similar approach with coffee drinks. Our mission is to educate and bring exciting food knowledge and delicious design to the world.

As food lovers, we hear this one question a lot: "Are you a tea person or a coffee person?" To tell you the truth, we are both. 

What really started our interest in coffee was the first try of Hong Kong Yuan Yang, a drink with a mixture of both tea and coffee. We were really inspired by the recipe and the root of its invention. Eventually we did more and more research about coffee drinks in depth, especially the uncommon ones that are tasty and authentic.

We know everyone makes their coffee differently: instant coffee, drip with a coffee maker or Kone or French press. What we wanted to introduce is something more than how to make the perfect cappuccino, our team wanted to create something that any everyday-coffee-drinker can follow and try out different local flavors as if you are traveling in another country.

Alchemy of Coffee is an illustrated diagram of how 39 different coffee drinks were made by mixing with similar ingredients.

They are not limited to the typical coffee that you can easily find like Mocha or Americano, you will find more delicious drinks like Irish coffee, iced Vietnamese coffee, Hong Kong Yuan Yang, Jamaican Coffee, Portugal Galão, Mexican Café de olla, Turkish Coffee, and many more.

The difference in ingredients is the key in making the flavor of a foreign coffee drink. Surprisingly we found many similarities among coffee drinks that were from different parts of the world. That's why we created "Alchemy of Coffee" to connect them all through an interesting "family-tree-like" diagram.

 

 

Liquor is actually a very common ingredient in coffee recipes such as Irish Coffee (adding Irish Whiskey), Jamaican Coffee (adding Jamaican Rum), or Russian Coffee (adding Vodka!) Discover more delicious coffee cocktails through Alchemy of Coffee!

We really value sustainable manufacture and design. For Alchemy of Coffee, we will be using 100lb. poster paper with 80% recycled content. It has a semi-gloss finish, which is convenient for both hanging with or without framing glass.

Specification:  Dimension is 24x36 inch, Background color: black

Here's a breakdown of where do our funding go to. We are aiming to reach $3500 to start our first production line of "Alchemy of Coffee"

Comparing to any other poster project we had done so far, this time we are aiming for a slightly higher funding goal due to the higher cost of larger poster size. (24x36 inch) 40% of the fund goes to our initial printing production, 30% goes to our labor and profit, 20% goes to supplies like packing tools and shipping tubes, lastly 10% goes to Kickstarter service fee and payment process fee.

After funding period ends, there will be a 14-day window for Kickstarter to transfer their funds. After that 14 days, we will begin printing and packaging process. All posters will be packaged in secured durable kraft tube and taped to seal. Below is the schedule we will follow:

  • September 1 2016 - Launched on Kickstarter 
  • October 4 2016 - Funding end on Kickstarter 
  • October 15 2016 - Printing job will be submitted for production 
  • October 22 2016 - Receive physical copies of Alchemy of Coffee posters 
  • October 24-31 2016 - Pack and ship out posters 
  • Beginning of November to beginning of December - Posters are delivered.
*THIS WILL MAKE A GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR A FRIEND! :)

Prior to this new coffee poster, we began the Alchemy poster series from "Alchemy of Tea" and "Alchemy of Cake," both intended to introduce recipes of tea & cake. 

**ADD-ON is available now for both "Alchemy of Tea" and "Alchemy of Cake". Please add $25 to your current pledge to receive each poster.
