"A long journey"
Indian ink and tempera colour on cardstock
58cm x 35cm

“A long journey” represents two woman faces: the first one drawn inside a coffee bean, while the other one inside a coffee cup. These two images mean the beginning and the end of coffee processing. Every day we taste something that comes from a long way off. It has travelled for miles, it has crossed countries, and it has passed from dozens of hands that picked up it to other dozens hands that worked it. Finally, like a postcard signed by the hard work, it has come to us and it continues to travel us with its unmistakable aroma.
