Ladies of Obscura

Two things I love are art and coffee. Sometimes these two things combine forces to create a most compatible and perfect union, and when a relationship like that develops it is truly a beautiful thing. This is very much the case regarding the collaboration between Obscura coffee and Melbourne artist Eveline Tarunadjaja. Obscura are Melbourne based distributors of organically grown Fair Trade sourced coffee, offering a range of different specialty blends, each with unique & elegant illustrations as part of their packaging. The Ladies of Obscura designs were commissioned especially for Obscura by artist Eveline Tarunadjaja and the prints are all screen printed by hand on each coffee bag. Not having tasted Obscura coffee before ordering, I purchased three bags online purely because I loved the look of the stylish packaging. I was hooked on the darling designs. My coffee arrived a couple of days ago, & so I've now had the opportunity to taste the blends I can very happily report that I'm also hooked on the coffee. Yum!

Oooooh, I can smell that magnificent coffee all the way over here! You've made me want to run make a huge pot of dark magic French coffee and SIT in it! And the art of Eveline Tarunadjaja (what an interesting name) appears to be a perfect marriage for the Obscura brand. As you say, nice when talent in two areas combine to deliver such a delightful experience. All senses covered!

I have to say, nothing better than a good cup of coffee...Enjoy art too.

This is exactly something I would have done....bought something based on the packaging. Glad the coffee turned out to be delicious (as I'm sitting here drinking a not-so-delicious cup....)




And Tracy...when are you going to list things in your shop? la, la, la...

Diva -
I'm thinking I said March. I'm thinking we still have 2 more weeks of March. I'm thinking I think too much...

I don't even drink coffee, but the packaging makes me want to consider it so that I have an excuse to have these pretty packages hanging out in my kitchen. Mmm.
