Honey bees & coffee trees”
Why did we design this product?
The story behind this design starts on a wintery afternoon in New York. Walking around the city with my girlfriend, we came upon a woodcraft stand at a fair in Bryant Park. What particularly caught our attention were some fine, handmade honey dippers. Thinking about bees and the cold—and also in desperate need for and a cup of coffee—we continued our walk. Soon after, we sat down at a coffee shop, and it was then that I remembered a story I had read about how bees love coffee too. “How happy must bees be in Costa Rica!” I said.
And then she went on to explain that indeed they were because it is known that honey is always produced near coffee plantation areas; proving that both bees and Costa Ricans are by trade a bit addicted to caffeine.
Little did I know, but indeed science has proved that bees crave a great coffee buzz from coffee flowers. That’s right! When bees find good nectar they dance shaking their bellies, telling their friends they found a caffeinated treasure! Consequently, waggle dance happens a lot near our Costa Rican coffee plantations. So yes, bees—like most ticos—are a bit addicted to caffeine & probably rank way up in the happy world index as well.
Honey bees & coffee trees inspired us to design our Honeypot.
Take part in our sweet Costa Rican delight and join in the happiness. Bee happy—tico style!
