What’s the story behind this 1997 Starbucks whole bean poster?

Attached is an image of a poster advertising Starbucks whole bean coffee. The little bag at the lower right features ‘Bella Vista’ Starbucks coffee. The very small print dates the poster to 1997. It’s an interesting image. Definitely the kind of poster that makes me take a second look and ask, ‘What is the story behind this?’ There is a finger pointing at a coffee bean. And the words atop in bold say, “Coffee First!” I also think the chalk-art style is intriguing too.
