"Awakening" ~ A New Coffee Mural Record

In December 2011, Albanian artist Saimir Strati set a Guiness World Record with his creation of "One World, One Family, Over a Cup of Coffee" - a coffee mural depicting five musicians - using 308 lbs of coffee beans. Russian artist Arkady Kim has set a new record with his mural, “Awakening”, using 397 lbs of coffee.

The mural, spanning 30 square meters in Moscow’s Gorky Central Park, took 12 days to piece together with the help of 5 assistants. Using over one million beans to create the portrait of a woman’s face indulging in coffee’s powerful aroma.
