"Por Amor al Café" Artist Series Print (8"x10"in)
"Por amor al café" is a one-of-a-kind artwork by Puerto Rican urban artist Nelson Selek for our Re:Colecta 2023 initiative. This year we wanted to celebrate and shine a light on the contributions of women in the coffee industry. We are experiencing a global cultural shift, and women are finally getting the recognition they deserve in any given field. Over the years we have noticed the influence and affluence of women as key players in the coffee industry. From baristas, to pickers, to farm and/or coffee shop owners, educators, etc. This is why the focus of Re:Colecta 2023 is on Ruth Mariel and her new farm in Ciales, Puerto Rico. She has come a long way and is planting, picking and processing coffee that we hope to highlight and add to our online shop in the near future. At the moment she needs help with building a seed nursery for her small but growing farm. This is why the artist chose to create this beautiful artwork to honor the importance of Ruth's "Love for coffee".
