Ohm Beads Black Coffee Preview (Ohm Beads Bead of the Month July 2018)

This Ohm Beads blog brings a complete preview of the upcoming Ohm Beads Black Coffee, Bead of the Month for July 2018.

As promised today sees the anticipated preview of the Ohm Beads Black Coffee, Bead of the Month for July 2018. This is now the fourth coffee themed bead of the month, all of which have been released during July. While I still can’t believe we’re into the fourth year of Bead of the Month designs I do appreciate the continuation of tradition, particularly as a coffee lover.

In 2015 was the original Ohm Beads Latte glass. A mere five hundred and fifty five (555) were made and it’s still amongst my favourite Ohm Beads glass.

In 2016 came the Ohm Beads Caramel Latte, a textured version of the original that came complete with a coffee cup. The set included two glass beads and was limited to the lower quantity of three hundred and thirty three (333) pieces.

2017 saw the Ohm Beads Coffee Collection with it’s to go and to stay silver mugs and packaged in a cardboard to go travel mug. These are still available though I suspect they’ll begin to disappear fast now. Five hundred and fifty five (555) sets were released.

Ohm Beads Black Coffee Summary

For those of you who struggle to keep track of dates, here’s a quick overview:-

If like me you’re struggling with how fast the year is passing, our next Bead of the Month preview will be for August; the final month of summer.

Black Coffee is undoubtedly a versatile bead though I know many collectors are sporting pastels and brighter colours for the summer season. For me it’s absolutely a bead to buy in pairs and I can’t imagine there will be a great deal of variation. If you aren’t a coffee drinker, much like the Coffee Collection from last year, it should work perfectly well for tea and paired with the Ohm Beads Teabag it could make a perfect bangle.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Black Coffee and will you be pre-ordering? Hit the comments and let me know!

    I knew it. A dark brown, almost black glass bead. Black coffee.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Indeed you were right πŸ™‚

  2. Elizabeth

    Woohoo! Just preordered 2. Love this color and so glad that it is a glass bead!

    • endangeredtrolls

      I agree. We definitely need more glass but I think some that isn’t limited too would be nice πŸ™‚

  3. Lola

    It’s plain, but I guess that works for some things. Would have been great to see a little coffee bean design within the glass–it could have been just slightly off shade from the bead base, just visible.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it is but I think that’s the beauty of it; it’s simplicity.

      It’s aptly named for the same reason. Walk into Starbucks and you’ll find a menu full of the most amazing coffees and people – like me – placing such personalised orders.

      Then there’s the black coffee drinkers. They just want their coffee :p

      I think for this bead it’s just all about that rich colour.

      • Lola

        A friend of mine in Hawaii award winning Kona beans; the stuff bites my tongue off. πŸ˜€ I drink it straight, no chaser! Lol. Wakes me up like nothing else.

        • Lola

          grows*

          Sigh.

  4. Kasia

    Love these! Just preordered. It will go nicely with Cold Milk and Hot ChocolateπŸ™‚

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes they will! πŸ˜€ Add your own milk πŸ˜‰

  5. Pippa

    I love it!!! And am glad they kept it simple πŸ™‚

    If they were doing a collection then one with a bean or something would be nice addition. But as a solo, to me this is perfection.

    • endangeredtrolls

      A few people have mentioned this idea now of some kind of bean in the glass.

      How do you ladies envision that? Like murrini style (as the fishies in Blue Ocean) or a raised bean or?

      • Lola

        I’d like to see that dark background lit with the color of growing beans, the colors of the entire process. I’d also love to see beads celebrating coffee plantations and the people who bring us the good stuff, the wonderful colors from start to finish in such beautiful, lush places. We usually just celebrate the finished product, and the product containers. πŸ™‚ I don’t buy Ohm glass, the shape doesn’t appeal to me, but I like to look.
