This combination is brought together by two artist friends who decided to try something new. To her parents’ grief, Cindy was one of those toddlers that scribbled on walls with crayon and used tape to put up her colorful doodles all over her room (her dad really didn’t like things being adhered to the wall; they damaged the paint he said). As the internet started to emerge, she started sharing her artwork online under the alias Sakuradragon. Growing up, she immersed herself in Japanese games, comics, and cartoons and created art that reflected that. Now in her adult life, she operates a small creative business, also called Sakuradragon, sharing her illustrations and stories with anyone the universe brings to her. In the early days, Sakuradragon was a small brand, uncertain of itself and eager to reach an audience. Hannah was a big bright spirit who loved sharing her light with anyone she found, especially artists. She loved not only supporting them in any way but also bonding with them as a fellow artist herself. Hannah was drawn to the nostalgic softness of Sakuradragon, which reminded her of her home abroad in Japan, and thus, that is how the story of their friendship began. Now, just shy of a decade later, they are still finding ways to give each other a hard time - out of love, really - which eventually led to this unexpected collaboration. Odd really, considering neither Cindy nor Hannah enjoyed coffee at the start of the friendship. Once they both found a coffee loving partner, the duo found the magic in the art of coffee. One day, looking for ways to do something coffee related for the holidays with her business, Cindy sends a message, “Hey, Sakuradragon and Convocation Coffee should do a collab for the holidays! I think the fans would really enjoy it.” Thus began the search for a blend that embodied the dynamic duo and the current season of cheer.
As for the coffee: the warm comforting tones of the Panama component are paired with the Uganda component’s bright and cheerful profile, embodying a blend that reflects Sakuradragon’s desire to enjoy the small, often overlooked things in life.
And here we are–we hope you enjoy this cozy winter cheer and celebration of our friendship!
