Process: THRIVE Farmers expired (longer viable for consumption) Farmhouse Morning Blend coffee was brewed and reduced down to a dark resin and applied to canvas. (This painting contains approximately 90 cups of coffee produced from almost 3 lbs of thrown out coffee beans.) Once dried, using various mixtures of water and reduced coffee the artist splashed and manipulated layer upon layer of textures.

**This Original Art Helps Coffee Sustainability Starting in September 2016, Steven Mikel began painting with expired direct-sourced coffee from THRIVE Farmers to create many of his Dark Roast Paintings. Additionally, Steven has pledged to donate 10% of all related painting sales to support sustainable development projects among coffee farming communities via the ThriveWorx Foundation, the non-profit arm of THRIVE Farmers International.
