My Favorite Coffee T-Shirts (that I didn’t design)

I may have mentioned a time or two about my great love for graphic tees. I love t-shirts, and I have a vast collection of them. Most of them have to do with coffee. Of course, I also have my favorite coffee t-shirts too.

Below, by popular demand, are some of my favorite coffee t-shirts that other people have designed with a coffee theme. Needless to say, there’s a huge assortment of such designs on the internet. So many. So, so many.

So, with that said, I want to highlight some of my favorites!

My T Shirt Design Process

You may have noticed that t shirts are a passion of mine. I love and collect so many graphic tees that I eventually made this a part of my design business. So, would you like to learn more about my t shirt design process?

Let’s talk.

But First, Coffee

Obviously, my t shirt design process starts with coffee. I mean, doesn’t everything?

But First Coffee Graphic Tee with Sunburst pattern

All joking aside, it is my passion for good coffee that inspired most of these designs I’ve created. My passion for good coffee started when I lived in Vienna, Austria, one of the great coffee cities of the world. There was something about that — not just the coffee by the whole vibe — that inspired my imagination.

Next, I take up my sketchbook and pencil to rough out some ideas I’m having.

First I Drink the Coffee Then I do the Things

Most of the coffee quotes and sayings I’m designing around have been done many times before. I actually started out my t shirt design process by creating the different coffee themed graphics and coffee vectors I’d use in my t shirt designs.

Graphic Tee First I drink the coffee then I do the things Badge Style T shirt design

I sketched out the different coffee tools and accessories I have in my own kitchen, using those as inspiration. Then I imported them into Adobe Illustrator. I did this by taking a picture with my smartphone, then placing that image into Adobe Illustrator.

After I had some good basics created, I started looking at what sorts of designs people like you are looking for. There’s no point in making something if no one wants it, right?

So I do a little research on Zazzle to see what I can do better, and what needs I might meet.

The Final Step in My T Shirt Design Process

Finally, it’s time to take on the world.

With Enough Coffee, I could Rule the World Heraldic Style Graphic Tee White on Dark

I use the artwork I’ve created and the inspiration I’ve gained to create designs that fit into the specs Zazzle has. I work with the designs until I have them just the way I like them, before uploading them to Zazzle, creating my products for you to buy.

You can find Coffee themed graphic tees and more in my Ode to Coffee Store in the Zazzle Marketplace

Graphic Tee: Maybe She’s Born with It; Maybe It’s Caffeine

Sometimes you meet a lady with so much style and sass in spades, you just think to yourself, “Maybe she’s born with it; Maybe it’s caffeine.”

It’s those sassy coffee loving women I’m celebrating in this design. Those delightful women who are changing the world right where they’re at. Highly caffeinated and wildly ambitious women with a cuppa in hand and a gleam in their eyes.

What are graphic tees Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's caffeine tshirt

I had been playing around with this vintage style silhouette of a lady for a different logo design project when I decided it was the perfect fit for this passion project. Chin up, hair neatly coiffed, and coffee in hand, she’s off to take on the world.

Maybe She’s Born with It; Maybe It’s Caffeine

She’s the kind of woman who looks great wearing some stylish wardrobe or jeans and a t-shirt…like my retro style graphic tee, “Maybe she’s born with it; maybe it’s caffeine.”

Are you looking for a great gift for the coffee lover in your life? This design is not just available in these soft and comfy graphic tees. The “Maybe she’s born with it; maybe it’s caffeine” design is also available on other products as well.

What are Graphic Tees and Why do I love them?

What are graphic tees exactly? What makes a t shirt a graphic tee?

A graphic tee is just a t shirt that has been printed with some sort of graphic on it. That’s the basic answer.

And yet it hardly seems enough to answer the question, “What are graphic tees?” with such a simple answer.

What are Graphic Tees? Graphic Tees are a little Self Expression you Wear

First of all, graphic tees are a form of self-expression that somehow transcends fashion. Because let’s face it, t shirts are hardly haute couture. And yet you can get a real sense of someone’s style based on what kind of t shirt they are wearing.

What Are Graphic Tees

I was pondering this recently. I was in Bay City, Michigan while grabbing a cuppa from one of my favorite coffee houses in the United States, Harless + Hugh. Harless and Hugh gets two thumbs up from me for

  1. Serving traditional style drinks and keeping it European Coffee House Basic
  2. Being alumni of my own alma mater, Northern Michigan University where I learned how to Art

As I was sitting there sipping my traditional cappuccino in a china cup, and sketching out some t shirt ideas, I saw her. A young woman came in wearing a Vintage Talk t shirt. I had also just been listening to their playlist on Spotify, so this was exciting.

A Graphic Tee is More than Just Words or a Design

That t shirt did more than tell me a band name. That t shirt communicated a little something about the person wearing it. In an instant, I knew she was someone who loved chill music with an acoustic vibe. I figured she was thoughtful and maybe a bit introverted.

Then she came over to me and said, “Cool shirt. Ha! That’s me!”

I looked down and realized I was wearing my “Maybe she’s born with it; maybe it’s caffeine” coffee quote shirt. This graphic tee I designed is more than just a great coffee quote. It’s more than a t shirt printed with a clever coffee saying.

There are more than just words to it. There’s the vintage style silhouette. There’s the style and color (mine is in a flowy raglan tee in ash gray with teal print).

What are graphic tees Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's caffeine tshirt

So here we were, two introverted coffee lovers, interacting socially. Why? It’s all because we connected over the graphic tees we were each wearing. Maybe you have to be a great lover of the graphic tee to relate, but that was amazing.

What are Graphic Tees? Graphic Tees are Shirts that Set the Mood

I have to admit that sometimes I pick out my graphic tee of the day based on what kind of day I expect having.

I have a special t shirt I designed with a coffee quote about Mondays. This graphic tee about Mondays and coffee feels just right on some Mondays.

What are graphic tees Mondays Happen Coffee Helps Graphic tee

I guess you’ve probably figured out I’m passionate about my t shirts. This past spring while on jury duty I faced many t-shirtless days. We couldn’t dress too casual for jury duty. They specifically named t shirts as a no go. I had to really think about what to wear after that.

What are Graphic Tees? Have a Look at Some I designed!

When you find something you’re passionate about, it’s good to run with it. Thus I took my passion for graphic tees and started designing some. I love designing clever graphic tees with a cool coffee house vibe.

I design t shirts with Adobe Illustrator and using the Zazzle store to handle sales and printing.

If you want to shop some graphic tees with coffee quotes and a cool vibe, have a little at some of my t shirt designs on Ode to Coffee.

Each of these graphic tees can be personalized as needed. This means, adding your name or the name of your event on them, or any other information you want to add. I’ve recently sold a graphic tee about coffee that was personalized for a while bridal party. Fun!

Pour Over Coffee Technique

The Pour Over Coffee Technique rose in popularity in the last twenty years in the United States. When living in Europe, pour over coffee was the standard method for making coffee at home. Few people I knew had an actual electric drip coffee maker.

What is the Pour Over Coffee Technique?

Pour Over Coffee Technique: Learn to Make Great Coffee at Home

A pour-over is pretty much what it sounds like.

You’ll pour hot water over coffee grounds and fresh coffee filters into your coffee cup below.

You brew pour over coffee one cup at a time most of the time. I have made pour over coffee in a carafe thermos before too.

Pour over is like the drip coffee method most of us are familiar with.

What is the pour over #coffee technique? Learn to make a great cup of coffee at home easily. #gourmetcoffee Click To Tweet

With Drip coffee, in a drip coffee maker, the coffee maker automates this process for us.

When making a pour over, the coffee filter is usually rinsed first, then grounds are added. Add about 2T of grounds for every 6 ounces of water for the best cup. The measurement really is just a starting point though. It’s important to make the coffee to the strength you prefer.

Make a small indent in the top of the grounds. When you begin pouring the hot water onto the coffee, aim for that indention.

Add just a little bit of water at a time, filling it about halfway. Pause for about 10-20 seconds. Then continue pouring after the pause. Slowly pour it around the grounds in concentric circles.

What Coffee Maker for Pour Over Coffee?

You may be wondering what special equipment you might need to make pour over coffee.  The answer is, “Not much.”

This means you have more money to spend on good coffee, right? Yay!

Pour Over Coffee Technique: Learn to Make Great Coffee at Home

All you’ll really need is the dripper. The pour-over dripper is the cone-shaped basket that holds the filter and coffee grounds.

The drippers designed for the pour over coffee technique are different from the drippers used in automatic drip coffee makers. These drippers have a large lip on the bottom so the pour over dripper rests well on your coffee cup.

Some coffeehouse pour overs use the special pour over coffee pots. They include a glass carafe with a dripper attached at the top.

How Does Pour Over Coffee Taste?

Pour over coffee made by the cup usually tastes a bit stronger and bolder than automatic drip coffee.

Personally, I think the taste of a pour over depends more on the quality of the coffee you’re using. An Italian Roast when making a pour over or a French Press works well. I mix in a teaspoon of flavored coffee (usually vanilla or hazelnut) to add a little extra flavor. The flavored coffee, mixed in small amounts with a good dark roast, tastes best.
