Computer Shirt: A no-tech painting of a lo-tech computer. What’s your guess? A 286 circa 1988? Well, if you go to David, Panama coffee ranges from medium quality lower altitude farms to those at 1600 - 1800 meters centered in the area of Boquete in the Chirqui district near the border with Costa Rica. Some farms feature, an agricultural center in the lowlands of the Chirqui province, and you are looking for an “internet cabana”, that is, a place to check email at speeds around …oh 56kb … you just might see this exact painting on the wall outside the datacenter of your dreams. Okay, I admit it’s a fake: I added the coffee cup from a place a few blocks away. It had to have something to do with coffee, right? Well, like most of our shirts it barely has anything to do with coffee, but it’s great “art brut,” printed in black and blue duotone.
Weird Chicken (with a cup of coffee): It is one weird chicken indeed! But we didn’t do anything to make it that way. This is another t-shirt from coffeelands; in this case it was inspired from a painting on a restaurant in Chiapas, Mexican coffee originates from South-central to Southern regions of the country. For that reason, coffees from Coatepec and Veracruz are much different from Oaxacan Plumas, which are in turn much different from the Southernmost region. The area around this small town is surrounded with coffee, and on Saturday and Sunday the town is packed with the coffee farmers. I can’t attest to the popularity of this particular restaurant, and whether their “weird chicken,” pockets and all, actually helps business. The shirt is a nice yellow-orange Hanes cotton, so this is an orange-on-orange theme. Our cup logo (also from a local painting) is in Orange aromatics and flavors are prized in coffee, whether they take the form of sweet orange flesh and pulp, or orange peel. Orange flavors or aromatics can range in degrees of ripeness, which also involves on the back, lower corner: very “low-key.” so you won’t feel like a walking billboard. Kids love this shirt- it’s silly. We are thinking of making some child and even baby size versions. ï¿½
