I’m telling you, there’s a lot of indie goodness brewing in Dallas. From the awesome Fur Face Boy to the up-and-coming Sleepy Dan Clothing, Dallas is experiencing an indie apparel uprising of sorts. Another addition to the fold is Fresh Kaufee. Founder Joonbug McIntosh first caught my eye on Twitter, when he posted about Episode 88 of Co-Tee TV. You might remember that in that episode I talked about Javaboi Industries. Javaboi is a brand whose central theme is coffee. The T-Shirts come packed in little coffee bags, however, in Episode 88, I talked about how it would be great if, when opening the packaging, the T-Shirts actually smelled like coffee beans. I thought it was a great idea. And it looks it was, since Fresh Kaufee is already doing this! Awesome. Rad!
So, two brands based on coffee. If this were Iron Chef, which brand do I think reigns supreme? Hands down, I would go with Fresh Kaufee. For me, the Fresh Kaufee designs are much more wearable. I also love the Fresh Kaufee Java Joe logo and their other logo and insignia tees. They’re real fun with a streetwear vibe. Fresh Kaufee has also got some insanely detailed designs that are very Wotto-like, check out Ghost Roast when you get the chance. I’d love to get my hands on some Fresh Kaufee tees to actually how the two brands compare in terms of T-Shirt build, printing quality, and packaging [UPDATE: I got a hold of some Fresh Kaufee packaging, and they look dope 0 love it! It’s like you’re receiving a fresh bag of gourmet coffee beans. See below for shots of the Fresh Kaufee packaging]. But so far, I’m really digging the Fresh Kaufee designs – AND they smell like coffee!
Fresh Kaufee tees are available for sale at the Fresh Kaufee online shop and are priced from $13-$24.99.
