Ahhh...the smell of coffee. Some people like coffee so much, they want their pens to match. Don't be fooled by the coffee bean imitators... some coffee bean pens will still smell like coffee, but they are more fragile and easily damaged when the beans are not properly treated and finished. After coffee beans are dried, they are too light to properly cast and will float to the surface of a pen blank mold without prior stabilization. Our coffee beans are fully stabilized and cast in the blank color of your choice. For additional protection, our coffee bean pens receive the same long lasting finish as our other pens to enjoy them for years to come.
