Color plays an important role in design. It sets the mood, attracts attention, and can even influence our emotion and perception.

The right color combinations can engage your audience and showcase your brand in a way words cannot. This is precisely why it is very important, especially in branding. People generally decide about a product within the first 90 seconds, and most of their assessment is only based on the colors.

Being a designer, we sometimes feel that we’re kinda repeating the same color palette over and over again; and it’s very frustrating to do so if your working with different brands.

Thus, to lessen your burden, here are 10 beautiful coffee/tea inspired color palette you can use for your next design project. You can use it for your website design, social media ads, logo, business card, and even in interior design.
