Started a job at a coffee roastery recently. Eventually I'll be the guy roasting the coffee, but this is the product that we produce.
I applied unsharp mask in photoshop, then slightly desaturated it.

Thank you for all the kind comments :)

Please not that the coffee in the cup is NOT our product, it's just some old instant coffee I had lying around. I dont have a grinder yet to grind up beans. I think if I retake this photo, I'll put some milk foam on the top to make it look like a cappucino. 8th place, my best yet :)

Maybe it's just because I roast my own beans but this is one of my favorites this week. Nice focus and clarity and I like the lighting as well. Good job. DPz

Mmmm coffee.
A great photo. Nice focus on the beans at the front, nice DoF and nice lighting. Well done.

Plane of focus needs to be a bit further back

yummy! I love coffee. Too much of one color though. I would have made the cup a different color for more contrast, such as a dark green?

very very nice, except your coffee looks really muddy and brothy - there's a residue around the rim...... otherwise could be an ad shot :).

ooooooo!! caffeine! nice shot... good DoF... maybe a diffent light angle or intencity so the background is darker

Great depth, mouthwatering colors. I don't know if I want a cup of coffee or chocolate......... I think I'll have both. :-)
Good composition, nice lighting. It is also a good thing that the cup is not totally white, the texture adds flavor to the picture. :-)
