Arduino Espresso Maker and Other Coffee Ads #Art Tuesday

This wonderful post was suggested by Jerry.

Here’s what he had to say:

While the Boston Tea Party in 1773 was a watershed event for coffee consumption — with Colonists beginning to bag their tea consumption in favor of java — 1652 actually marked an even bigger event: The first printed advertisement for coffee in English, a modest handbill from London’s earliest coffee house. In the intervening years, ads for coffee became design events in their own right. Here, some standouts . . . and, as a bonus, a few lines from that very first ad, complete with olde-schoole spellings and punctuation.

Thanks, Jerry!

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
