I’m partial to any job specific stationery but one that combines my foodie tendencies doubly appeals. This unique series of tasting note journals and pens by bookmaker Dave Selden and artist Merrie Buchsbaum, exclusively made for Uncommon Goods also includes the very ingredients you rate!
The coffee pen is handmade with resin tinted and textured with ground coffee beans and the coffee-colored ink on the cover contains a few drops of organically grown, natural process coffee from Kintamani, Bali. Similarly, the beer pen contains hops and the notebook’s ink contains ale and so on.
Swirl, sniff, sip, and fill in the essentials, giving a rating out of 5 stars, A flavor wheel helps you identify nose, balance, body, flavor notes, and more.
