The Craft of Coffee
The Craft of Coffee, a project wherein I captured the craftmanship of coffee, from bean roasting to brewing. The project is on assignment of ‘Alley Cat Bikes and Coffee’ and a selection is exhibited there! Here’s a sneak peek of the project.
The first step in the craftsmanship of coffee is the bean roasting. I went to the coffee roasting plant ‘Dutch Barista Coffee’ To capture this.
The next step was to go the the Coffee Bar ‘Alley Cat Bikes & Coffee’ to see the last steps before one can enjoy their cup of coffee.
As the coffee bar combines the passion for bikes and coffee I took a shot which expresses this. The photo is called ‘Tools of Cycling’ and the bike of cyclist Laurens ten Dam was used in it.
As a coffee lover myself I get so enthusiastic about the project that I decided to extend the project on personal behave. I contacted the Kees van der Westen factory to take photos of the manufacturing process of these world class machines. Luckily, they were happy to cooperate and I was able to take some unique shots.
Kees van der Westen just updated their website and used one of the photos from my project as their cover photo.
