This is a fantastic story - I think we could all use a cup of coffee
Meet Saimir Strati, an Albanian artist who recently entered the Guinness Book of World Records for creating the world's largest coffee bean mosaic.
"I wanted to give the message that sharing love over a cup of coffee brings us closer, a cup of coffee brings us more love than a G20 meeting," Saimiri stated.
He used 309 pounds of coffee beans to portray a Brazilian dancer, a Japanese drummer, a U.S. country music singer, a European accordionist and an African drummer. And he used one of my favorite brands of coffee Lori Kafe (I just love their commercials) to make the mosaic. The message he says: "One world, one family, over a cup of coffee."
