We’ve been hard at work with our friends at Yes Plz on a follow-up to our first sold-out batch of Dad Beans. The process, it seems, is as much art as it is science. Decades of experience helps too!
Tony and Sumi (the alchemists behind Yes Plz) let us bring our vintage Yashica Samurai X3.0 along during our last cupping to capture some sweet "behind the beans" photos. This analogue beauty is a half-frame 35mm film camera, meaning that instead of taking 24 x 36mm images, it records 17 x 24mm images. And since these frames are half the size of a standard 35mm frame, we get twice as many frames per roll. Kind of like a Twoobie in every shot!
