I've had a lot of questions, so I'll start with this. You can now choose from the entire collection, which includes: Beer, Wine, Whiskey, Coffee & Tea.
How do I do this? Easy, you just select one of the "Pick-Any" pledge levels when you back the project. After the project is complete, we'll email you to ask which Beverage / Color combo you want. Now, back to the original project...enjoy!
Hello. My name is Jason, and I'm a designer. More importantly, I'm a coffee and tea enthusiast. The intention of this print series is to explore the deep and dark origins of these coveted caffeinated beverages. For years, I've started my mornings with some coffee...and shared my afternoons with some tea. Many of us consume coffee or tea every morning but never stop to think about where it comes from. This project breaks down the long trip from the ground to the mug.
This collection painstakingly illustrates the rich history that coffee and tea have shared. Each is carefully broken down into categories that best represent the beverages origin. Coffee breaks down by type > country > variety (i.e. Coffee > Arabica > Indonesia > Sumatra). Tea, on the other hand, breaks down by type > variety > preparation type - if applicable (i.e. Tea > Black > Assam > Orthodox).
The Coffee Diagram: This Diagram recognizes the most prevalent coffee varieties from around the world. There are two main types of beans, Robusta and Arabica. From there, we highlight coffee from almost 20 of the most popular coffee-exporting countries.
The Tea Diagram: This Diagram highlights the nine most prominent types of tea. These varieties include: Green, Pu'er, Oolong, Yellow, White, Rooibos, Yerba Mate, Black, and Flowering Teas. From there, we break down the each type of tea into it's sub-categories.
The Whole Family.
As some of you know, these two Diagrams are actually part of an even larger Diagram series. Since 2012, we’ve been methodically building and releasing a growing set of Beverage Diagrams. We’ve worked tirelessly to perfect the series. We should also mention, we’re introducing an entirely new color palette as part of this launch. Our fresh color scheme allows you to mindlessly mix-and-match your favorites.
Now all five of the beverage prints are available in all 4 of the new colors.
You’ll notice there are a few new pledge levels (Pick-Any-Two, Pick-Any-Three, etc). These allow you to choose any of the beverages in any of the new colors. So if you want a Blue Beer and a Red Tea - no problem. Or a Yellow Coffee with a Grey Wine - we’re on it. After the project is funded, we will send out the survey that allows you to choose your favorite print combination. And we’ll take it from there.

I will be creating these one-by-one using a professional giclée process. This is the same printing process used by the finest art galleries around the world. I will be using high-quality dye-based ink from Germany. This allows us to produce truly authentic museum quality prints.
Colors: Prints will be available in 4 colors. Dark Blue, Brick (Dark Red), Mustard (Dark Yellow) and Grey.
Beverages: With the "Pick-Any" pledge levels, you'll be able to choose between all of the beverages: Beer, Whiskey, Wine, Coffee and Tea.

Risks and challenges
We've completed numerous Kickstarter projects over the years. This project is actually part 4 of the Beverage Diagram Series, joining Beer, Whiskey, and Wine Diagrams. After creating 1000's of prints, we are confident that we have a solid process in place. We have worked closely with our suppliers to generate manageable and realistic deadlines. We will do everything possible to keep this project on track, to be sure product is shipped in time for the holidays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
