This project evolved from my pre-diploma course at my university. The general topic of the course was the German word "Druck", which can be translated and interpreted as "pressure", but as well as "print".
I chose to do my project about Coffee, due to its role in many different contexts. It is used to stimulate and fuel people in high pressured situations, but also consumed to relax while meeting up with friends or family. When one is invited to a stranger's home, it‘s considered polite to offer a cup of coffee.
The final product, a hardcover book contains chapters about the origins of coffee, how it‘s produced, and information graphics about how we drink coffee and how its consumption and status varies through global cultures.
The title "Kaffeeklatsch" translates to "Coffee chat", the hour-long conversations two have over a cup of hot black brew.
