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 70 cups of coffee produced from 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.
