De Atramentis: Coffee


Recommended Posts



Present test ink De Atramentis Coffee coffee color (brown). Ink smells bad. It was to be probably the smell of coffee, but in my opinion not really work out that manufacturer. Ink writes well, though you may feel dry pen. Ink dries fairly quickly. Unfortunately, the smell disqualifies him in my private feeling. Only for the brave or runny nose.

Really? A dry De Atramentis ink? They are rare. Which is too bad, because I love the color. Thank you for the review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
