T-Shirts -

Yes. T-shirts seem to be an integral part of the specialty coffee world. We don’t worry about seeming like utter geeks about our jobs when wearing a T-Shirt with a huge tamper on the front. During the years I’ve collected quite a few T-Shirts from different companies; Clover, La Marzocco, Viva Barista, Stumptown, different origin countries and numerous roasters and retailers. Our Coffee Collective T-Shirts Extremely Limited Edition has also had a lot of people asking for one and Casper even has an extremely cool one-of-a-kind version:

The reason I started thinking about the many T-Shirts is because the dear M’lissa Muckerman sent me a package with a cute drawing and a very cool T-Shirt all the way from Atlanta.

You gotta love the coffee people! Check out Octane’s Tamp This! Blog and M’lissa’s super-nice boy friend Chris Owens new Excogitate(?What does this mean?) Coffee Blog Thank you M’Lissa!

    To those who also wondered I looked it up:

    Excogitate
    verb
    1. come up with (an idea, plan, explanation, theory, or principle) after a mental effort; “excogitate a way to measure the speed of light” [syn: invent]
    2. reflect deeply on a subject; “I mulled over the events of the afternoon”; “philosophers have speculated on the question of God for thousands of years”; “The scientist must stop to observe and start to excogitate”

    That was weird. I’m in the middle of an out of season spring cleaning and trying to decide if I needed all these coffee t shirts. I’m a terrible hoarder and trying to be more ruthless in throwing stuff away, but part of me thinks these coffee t shirts are somewhat sacred. If only I had a coffee collective one to hold dear too.

    The Coffee Collective t-shirt is rare and coveted. M’Lissa and I were there in person and still didn’t manage to snag one. ;)
