Splendour of the Gift

The Source of Love

Coffee has earned prominence in popular culture as a drink over which love and friendships blossom. We are familiar with scenes in movies, dramas or sitcoms, showing how friendship, family-bonding and love develop over a cup of coffee. With the growing popularity of coffee, Suzuki Coffee believes that it is indeed a source of love which binds lovers together.

Between kisses

sideways up and down spaces flavoured by
rich dark continents hugging entwined
merge and melt our hearts
beat a common rhythm

LOVE IN ARABICA
By June Gwee
She wakes every morning,
Eager and impatient.
For she knows he will be waiting
In their usual corner.
She looks at her reflection
As she passes the stores.
Surprised to see a girl
Bright-eyed and flushed.
Round the bend is her prince -
The reason for her haste.
Through the café door,
Into Arabica.
Amidst its heady scent
She meets her one true love.
Sipping café Mocca,
Savouring its full body.
The minutes passed,
Their spirits high,
They will never forget
The climax of the day.
The time they spend together
Embraced by the aroma
Of sensuous Arabica.

The aroma, taste, texture, and flavour of a cuppa are often said to give inspirations to the mind. Indeed, “C” stands for Coffee, the Catalyst for Creativity. As such, coffee is equally presented in the arts – both as the subject and as the medium.

A Glimpse Of Coffee Arts

Thought by some commentators, the painting offers a glimpse of domestic happiness of the artist's own family. It is a testimony to lifestyle at the time of Louis XV, showcasing the interior decoration style of that era - complete with wall lamps, elaborate wall clock, exotic Chinese statuette, and indulgence in the coffee craze – the latest luxury import of that time.

Dennis Ascalon’s “Angels Series” reflect his views on the dichotomy between good manners and reputable conventions on one hand, and hypocrisy and dishonesty on the other hand - indeed, between good and evil. The use of murky earth colors blended into bright reds, yellows, and the like create an intense atmosphere of joyful melancholy. With his often mirthful take on the subject matter, this painting portrays that even angels need a coffee break!


Creating Art with Coffee


gift splen artpicWith the inherent staining properties of brewed coffee and its rich brown hues of varying depth and tones, it was not long before enterprising artists came up with the idea to use coffee not as a subject but as a medium for their art. Andy and Angel Saur are among this selected group of artists. This painting of a bear is completed entirely in coffee - no additives, just 100% pure coffee.


Coffee Stain Concept Art


gift splen stainpicMitchell Stuart has developed a pop-culture following his coffee stain art. Some of his works are found in his recent books: “Coffee with Mitch” and “Coffee with Mitch Refilled”. The sketches were drawn with ink and painted on site – mostly in coffee shops, with the fresh coffee he was drinking at the time. Accidental spills led to coffee stain art with no preconceived design (no pencil etc), just the fertile imagination looking for shapes and contours of inhabitants or crazy ideas. In his own words: “The balance between spill chaos and drawing control come together like cream and sugar to form surprising unplanned images.”
 
 
Coffee Appreciation – Why is it an Art?
The culture and history of coffee drinking are rich and are entrenched in most cultures and societies. The appreciation of coffee varies with different practices but nonetheless it is an art form.

The beans from the different coffee plants yield different flavours. Other variable factors that affect the taste include the different growth condition (soil, climate and cultivation conditions) in the different places of origin and the different processing and roasting techniques. Hence, it is not surprising that coffee has more than 700 taste profiles as compared to wine, which only has 400.

With such astounding complexity and range of possibilities, it is safe to say that no two fine coffees are alike. Not even the common blended coffees from different retailers. It takes great skills and art to be able to identify the different coffee characteristics and appreciate coffee like a true connoisseur.

What Is Latte Art?
Designs made on the fine layer of foam found on the tops of most espresso based drinks are referred to as Latte Art, also known as coffee art.

Latte Art can be created using two methods. The first method forms designs by manipulating a stream of milk from a jug into the coffee (known as free pour latte art). The second method uses tools to draw designs (known as etching) onto the milk foam.

The popularity of Latte Art has grown with the consumption of gourmet espresso-based drinks. In fact, certain coffee enthusiasts now consider Latte Art as the crowning glory of a perfectly brewed espresso drink.
