Submit a design inspired by coffee

Ode to the bean

Oh magical dark elixir of the alertness gods. Where would we be without ye? Trapped in the land of fog.

If you absolutely need your steamy cup of morning joe, raise your mug. Let's take a moment to salute the roasted beans that give us life every day.

Coffee is for closers, dreamers, artists, for sipping out of tiny cups at a piazzo table after a gluttonous meal, for the last minute project-finisher...and for Honoré de Balzac.

Consider phrases, images, illustrations, brews, regions, addictions, feelings, aromas...pore over this challenge and give it your best shot — we want to see your love letters to coffee.

Have more than one great idea? Submit a design for each cup you drink per day;)
