Challenges or observations: The black beer didn’t give enough colour, but it made a good base for what I added later. The coffee’s fading process took longer than the others, so it didn’t open up much, but this was the texture I wanted to get. I believe that red cabbage is a good integrator in terms of colour harmony. We can strengthen the meaning with different plant juices.
