Coffee beans – films have been inspired by them (Coffee and Cigarettes), writers are often stimulated by them and Zooey Deschanel loves them so much, she reckons there should be vacations dedicated to them.
They’ve been featured in books, films and music – and of course, many conversations throughout history. There’s no doubt about it – the world loves coffee.
