The Coffee Diary is a daily journal of buying coffee to-go. With each coffee purchased in 2004, the date and activity was recorded in Sharpie directly on the cup. The project describes routines and events centered around getting coffee while doing other things. The diary reveals weekly exchanges with people that develop from being at a certain time and place.
