B Coffee Project was born from the passion of two like-minded coffee fanatics to spread their love for specialty coffee. Colombia is a breathtaking land of charm, orchids, and extraordinary coffee. The Colombian mountains are alive with millions of hearts vibrating with the country’s rich culture and biodiversity rhythm. The colors, flavors, and unique experiences here are unrivaled, and the brown gold that is coffee is their greatest wealth. The people of Colombia are immensely proud of their coffee growers and the entire supply chain, who work tirelessly to produce specialty coffee that is second to none.
Coffeestylers was co-founded by illustrator Duvas (@freelooh), a professional publicist and barista by vocation. His art has always focused on the vision of specialty coffee and the richness of Colombian culture. He has collaborated with over 50 specialty coffee companies, delivering the art of good coffee to various parts of the world. Coffeestylers was conceived to integrate creative work into specialty coffee. Even their creative studio is housed within a coffee spot in Bogota, the capital of Colombia, where they offer branding, illustration, and packaging services for different coffee projects internationally.
B Coffee Project and Coffeestylers have united to create this beautiful wristband design that showcases Colombia's unique features, from transporting coffee to the breathtaking mountains, stunning wax palms, vibrant flowers, and diverse coffee brewing methods. Their official mascot, Brew, will join you on your coffee adventures, making it all the more special!
As coffee has become a global phenomenon, it has been incorporated into various cultural practices and customs. Whether you’re looking for a morning pick-me-up or a relaxing afternoon treat, coffee makes you invigorated and content. Similarly, blue and white porcelain has been exported across the globe, where it is appreciated for its beauty and artistry. The pairing of blue and white porcelain and coffee makes for a beautiful and harmonious combination, representing a fusion of different cultures and traditions.
Apart from running the coffee shop, the couple offers their expertise as Coffee Consultants, helping others set up coffee shops and providing guidance on developing menus and design work. Their passion for coffee and attention to detail have helped many aspiring coffee shop owners bring their visions to life.
Coffee isn’t the only passion that drives Deepika. In fact, before getting into coffee, she was a lawyer by profession. She found that art was an outlet for her to relieve stress, and during the pandemic, she took up digital art again and started posting her creativity on social media.
“Through art, I discovered ways to make coffee more approachable, especially to those new to the specialty coffee scene. In the initial year and a half of my coffee journey, I realized that not everyone understood the concept of specialty coffee. As such, I would try to explain it in a nonjudgmental sort of way, and it was often well received. And now, I try to do the same through my art, to create relatable and informative coffee-related content for everyone to enjoy.”
The mountains and Garuda feathers together illustrate the philosophy of “Sabang sampai Merauke,” which reminds us that despite our diverse traditions, we are all connected and together as one, and the dripper being the most popular homebrewing tool in Indonesia.
“I met many homebrewers from different cities and cultures, but somehow we’ve always hit it off, and now we’re connected by coffee. I hope my designs will connect all coffee lovers worldwide in support of this charity program. You will be surprised how much you can learn about a person over coffee.”
The fresh illustration showcases Shelton’s hand-lettering skills. It embodies the joy of homebrewing by featuring a simple yet powerful slogan, “THIS IS WHY WE BREW,” inspired by his passion for coffee and love for basketball. This wristband captures the spirit of this fundraising program and the connection we all share through coffee. Thank you for your support!
“Tonatiuh, pronounced Toh-nah-teeuh, which means something along the lines of he who goes forth shining, was the name of the Aztec sun god. He was the patron deity of all Aztec warriors, especially of the important jaguar and eagle warrior orders.” As such, Delgadilo turned to old Aztec culture for inspiration on the design – to illustrate how coffee comes to life.
Power of connection is more than an artistic expression; it’s a tribute to the hands involved in every cup of coffee. Illustrated as two hands coming together, encased in an AeroPress, which symbolizes the bond that brings us together over coffee. The AeroPress was Çubukçular’s first brewing equipment and has “given me power for years.”
Through Power of Connection, Nükhet Çubukçular aims to support other baristas in the coffee community because, as she puts it, "that's what coffee does, it brings us together." So, whether you're a barista or a coffee lover, join the coffee community and support this unique project. Because with every sip, you're not just enjoying coffee; you're experiencing the power of connection.
The birches symbolize distinction in Russia, adding a touch of authenticity to the wristband. At the same time, just like Mount Elbrus, mountains with open arms welcome you to the growing community, adorned with tattoos that represent the baristas’ love for their unique ink, viewed as art and an expression of themselves rather than a negative stereotype.
Through his contribution, Timofey is showcasing his love for coffee and giving back to the global coffee community, a testament to his dedication to the cause.

What is the Coffee Wristbands Charity Program?
Coffee Wristbands Charity Program aims to bridge you and your local coffee community, and the international coffee people from all over the world. Coffee Wristbands is a fundraising program that brings coffee artists together for collaborations on projects that give back to the coffee community.
How does the charity program works?
1. The I’M NOT A BARISTA team supports collaborations with coffee professionals worldwide. We showcase their ideas, recipes, and designs, and translate their needs into action.
2. We collaborate with coffee shops that share our values of giving back to the coffee community.
3. Together, we make direct donations to baristas in need using the proceeds from the coffee wristbands.
4. You can help a coffee professional by purchasing a coffee wristband from us or our partners. This greatly supports the local and global coffee community.
When you purchase a coffee wristband directly from I’M NOT A BARISTA, the profits will go to the #tipabarista campaign, which donates directly to coffee professionals through international wire transfer. However, all our charity partners are required to donate a minimum of 50% of the coffee wristband profit to their local coffee community. This means that the profit will be used to help coffee professionals in our charity partner’s city or country. We believe this is the best way to create a movement of Doing Good and help our local coffee community, and we hope to inspire other businesses to do the same.
Can I trust I'M NOT A BARISTA?
To keep this program as transparent as possible, we build a special page where you can track what we do with the funds raised from the coffee wristbands.
You can track I’M NOT A BARISTA’s charity progress here https://notabarista.org/tipabarista-donation-tracking/. We will publish the charity status and progress later, stay tuned.
Where does the money go when I donate to your organization?
Purchasing the wristband directly from I’M NOT A BARISTA helps the coffee community by donating 100% of the profit to a barista in need. If the wristband is purchased through one of our partners, at least 50% of the funds go to local baristas in need.
