Coffee Snob Lettering

Last year I started exploring hand lettering, and decided to illustrate an ode to my love of coffee (yes its an addiction, but it's also a passion). It never evolved further than a sketch and a watercolour attempt, so I decided to revive it for this project.

Initial sketch:

Watercolour attempt:

For this project, I vectorised the lettering in Illustrator - taking care not to make it too perfect, I wanted it to retain some hand drawn characteristics.

I tried adding shading to the overlapped areas, but felt it wasn't working for this piece. I then added some depth to the lettering and texture - here are two variations:

Any feedback would be appreciated.
