Creating an Organic Coffee Brand Identity: The Story of Magnagaea

5
Born amidst the lush mountains of Costa Rica and Colombia, Magnagaea is more than just a coffee farm. It’s a home for a tribe that’s passionate about coffee and the environment. This tribe’s dedication to quality is evident in every step of their process, from brewing methods to roasting and sourcing the coffee.

The brand, Magnagaea, aims to provide its customers and local partner coffee shops with the highest quality coffee possible. They offer four types of coffees, selecting the best beans from around the world and roasting them to perfection. The coffee is available in three weight versions (80gr, 250gr, and 500 gr).

The challenge was to develop a brand that is perceived as natural, organic, direct, and memorable, using regional emblems that the public recognises as theirs.
