Dress Up Your Lab If you don't have enough wall space for these three sweet new posters from Cafe Imports, you might want to consider moving to a bigger space. Just this past December, the Minneapolis-based importing company released an updated second edition of its World Specialty-Coffee Maps, a radically revamped fourth edition of its Coffee Family Tree, and a brand-spanking- new Specialty Coffee Harvest Chart—three useful and artistic reference materials every coffee professional should immediately have framed and hung up. Designed by Cafe Imports Creative Director Andy Reiland, the three works have a dramatic aesthetic, set on shades of gray with vibrant pops of color. We are most impressed by the tremendous update to the Coffee Family Tree, which now features more than 100 varieties, cultivars, and/or hybrids of coffee along with information about each one's lineage, making it easier to understand the genetic diversity (or lack thereof) that exists within Arabica coffee. The debut edition of the Harvest Chart is also a fantastic resource for roasters who are interested in planning out a year's worth of sourcing timelines in one fell swoop. " We are committed to constantly learning more about coffee, and equally committed to sharing all of that information with other coffee people all over the world," says Cafe Imports Managing Editor Ever Meister. "These posters are an evolution of what we know about coffee, and we love knowing that we can offer them as dynamic pieces of education and as conversation- starters, not only to our customers, but to any passionate student of specialty coffee." The posters are $15 each or $40 for the trio, with free shipping in the U.S.A. and international shipping estimates available upon checkout. Continued on page 24 22 barista magazine
