i will not hesitate to say that i judge my choice of coffee places pretty harshly by their cover – in other words, if i don’t know anything about them or their coffee (or tea, or food, or whatever) then i will make my decision to go there, or not, based solely on their design aesthetic. to me a beautiful representation of your space, product and just general vibe totally mirrors the quality of what you’re providing.

that said, i would pay a visit to No. Six Depot in a nano-second-heartbeat if i ever found myself in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts. their beautiful corporate identity design was done by Nashville based Perky Bros, whose clever wrapping paper slash backgammon board design put a huge smile on my face.

No. Six Depot is a family owned, small-batch coffee roaster and café nested in the beautiful Berkshires. Located in a historic train station on 6 Depot St, they serve teas, salts and coffee from small farms and roast on location. Their identity juxtaposes a mix of unique rural and modern elements — drawing inspiration from their own backyard railroad and unique approach to keeping it simple and making it true.

  1. No. 6 Depot is in my backyard :) I love that you are writing about our little town, and their building was once the train station many years ago. They def. have a great aesthetic, and the coffee is wonderfully strong too!

  2. I lusted over this branding/packaging and then visited the coffee shop/restaurant last summer without realizing what it was. When I pulled up and saw their sign, I got so excited! The place is incredible. The food and coffee are amazing and the packaging looks amazing in person. I highly recommend a trip to this place (as well as the Berkshires!).
