This is, I think, the best Coffee infographic I’ve ever seen. And I have seen many.
Christmas is less than four weeks away.
Crazy. I know.
So what do you get the coffee snob in your life that won’t have them turning up their nose and regifting? It’s a conundrum. But thebeanstalker.com is here to help. Here’s my guide to Christmas shopping in the under $100 category.

I love that with my PR/Marketing background I’m true to type according to this infographic. But I feel sorry for the scientists out there.
It’s not a particularly quantitative analysis. Scientists could drink twice as much coffee as me.
The data comes from a Dunkin Donuts survey or something. So it sounds pretty reputable.
For the second year in a row, Dunkin’ Donuts, the national leading quick service retailer of hot brewed/flavored and iced coffee, according to The NPD Group/CREST® for the twelve months ending in June 2011, and CareerBuilder, the global leader in human capital solutions, partnered to determine the latest coffee consumption trends brewing in the U.S. workplace. The survey was conducted from August 16 to September 8, 2011, and included more than 4,700 workers nationwide.
According to the results, the professions with the highest proportions of workers stating they are less productive without coffee vary widely.
This is kind of epic.

I thought I had posted this before. But went looking for it, and couldn’t find it. So here you go. A visual guide to different drinks on the average cafe menu. Some rarer than others…
These are nice. They’re some sort of botanical drawings of coffee plants. They’re available as prints for lots of dollars, so best just to enjoy them online.
I had a baby this week. Her name is Sophia and she is amazing. I quoted a Proverb from the Bible the other day on my post featuring the five year old baristas. And I intend to take the Bible’s advice very seriously when raising my daughter.
So I was thinking – wouldn’t it be awesome to educate my daughter on the ins and outs of coffee right from when she learns to read and speak. So. Sitting in the hospital room with my sleeping daughter, I got to work with my iPad, my collection of coffee photos, and an app called Phoster. And I made an alphabet. A few of the letters have multiple options.
I will probably make a high res version of these one day. But in the meantime I offer them to you as my Christmas gift to you.
