That is freakin AWESOME! I'd hang it in my office above what I call the coffee bar AKA the cabinet with my two coffee pots, all of the many  coffees teas and and varied necessary condiments, and bean grinder! It would be a perffect fit!  Great job!

Thanks everyone!  I think donating it to a coffee house is a GREAT idea!

It did smell nice, for a couple of days.  I accidentally left the remaining coffee in a bowl on the kitchen counter.  The coffee that I had sprinkled all over glue and paint, then tapped off . . . .and my husband made a pot of coffee with it, not realizing what it was.

Eww.

Have you sealed it with anything?  I wonder of a polyeurethane on the parts that aren't paper would be good....

I didn't seal it because I still hoped to re-use the canvas.  But if I'm going to donate it I will sign it and spray it with a sealant of some kind.

Wow now I can re-use coffee cans for art supplies, used coffee grinds for plant soil, and now coffee filters for making flowers! Is there anything that coffee doesn't do?

I like how this piece conveys the warmth of coffee.  This is the most ingenious use of materials that I have seen for this craft challenge.  Great job and it looks nice on your mantle, too!
