  1. I love the new color! Such a rich, deep brown, much darker than previous brown distress inks.

  2. I would have to try it to see if I love the shade of brown but basically anything that has to do with coffee has to be a winner!

  3. Need this color badly! The darkest brown (walnut stain) doesn’t always get the job done. I am glad to see that Tim and Ranger are adding more earth tone colors. I love the new monthly color system as it gives you something to look forward to each month. I am always surprised with their choices. Now if they would just come up with some new storage solutions for these markers as I am rapidly outgrowing my current system. Keep those great color choices coming!

  4. I keep hoping that we get some colors to fill in some holes, especially in the purple, orange and even the red selection….This is nice color and anxious to see how it is different from walnut

  5. I have been DYING for Tim to come out with a rich dark brown, like Walnut Stain, but different, more blue than red based. This is the perfect combination. It’s on my wish list :D

  6. This color is one I reach for often. I like to distress and make items look vintage.
    I also am addicted to sponging with brown ink on the edges of paper & die cuts.

  7. Great name for a color. Would like to see it being used in a a project or two or three as walnut stain is my go to color

  8. Yummy color! Great to see Tim and crew at Stampaway in Ohio! Also great to see Simon Says Stamp crew and some of the Design Team!
