Finca Palo Blanco, Guatemala - Blackberry, Caramel, Dark Chocolate
You frame the shot, you depress the button, the photo emerges from the slot a simple grey square, off center, bordered by white; a pleasing, minimalistic statement. The Polaroid Land Camera is timeless not just for the photos it takes, but also the experience of developing. The first sip of Finca Palo Blanco greets you this same way, a simple balance of chocolate and black cherry. As time marches on, the parallels become unavoidable; the photo develops depth and complexity previously impossible to imagine, the coffee reveals a vibrant world of blackberry, vanilla, and honey.
