LUDVIG VAN BEETHOVENTHE COMPOSER
Beethoven (17701827) was a German composer and pianist, and one of the most famous and influential
composers in classical music. Beethoven rose at dawn and wasted little time getting down to work. His breakfast was coffee, which he prepared himself with great carehe determined that there should be sixty beans per cup, and he often counted them out one by one for a precise dose. But one was not enough and he did not stop at breakfast. Actually Beethoven was drinking dozens of cups of coffee
a day and allegedly 50 cups of tea.
JONY IVETHE DESIGNER
Jony Ive and his elite design team at Apple are coffee snobs. And rightfully so. Great coffee is great ideas. Like everything Apples designers do, their coffee ritual is very precise. They have honed their technique to a science, adjusting the beans, the grind, the
grain, and the pour to perfection. The resulting beverage boosts the teams creativity to the max. Not to mention they trust the
good old Italian espresso methods. They have all it takes to make one and it is the state-of-art machinery. The roaster that regularly
delivers 5 lb. bags of coffee to the studio, the grinder to grind beans to perfection and the High-End Espresso Machine.
DAVID LYNCHTHE DIRECTOR
One David Lynch character from the famous Twin Peaks agent Cooper made coffee famous. His love
for coffee should not come as a surprise as the director himself is a bit of a coffee fanatic. As it turns out David Lynch drinks from ten up to twenty coffees
a day. He says the secret is to stop at 5:30 p.m. He has a favourite personal roast, which is smooth and rich, with subtle undertones of surreal nightmares.
MAYA ANGELOUTHE WRITER
Angelou was never been able to write at home. As she explained in an interview she tires to keep
home very pretty and I cant work in a pretty surrounding. It throws me. So she always worked in
hotel or motel rooms. She would get up at about 5:30, and she was ready to have coffee by 6, usually
with her husband.
CHRISTOPHER THOMASTHE ATHLETE
Despite considerable research in this area, the role of caffeine as a performance enhancing drug is still not
100% clear but one thing is for sure coffee can enhance performance and definitely can help you burn
calories. It isnt strange then that athletes like Christopher Thomas (USAT Amateur Triathlete of the
Year, 2012) like their coffee first thing in the morning. He usually takes one or two black ones. As he says he
appreciates the most warmth and caffeine kick.
SREN KIERKEGAARDTHE PHILOSOPHER
Soren Kierkegaards routine included three things writing, walking, and lots of coffee. Kierkegaard had his own quite peculiar way of having coffee: Delightedly he seized hold of the bag containing the sugar and poured sugar into the coffee cup until it was piled above the rim.
Next came the incredibly strong, black coffee, which slowly dissolved the white pyramid.
