Artist Gracefully Creates the World’s Smallest Cup of Coffee Using Only a Single Bean

Pouring Worlds Smallest Cup of Coffee

When visual artist Lucas Zanotto was called upon by the Finnish coffee company Paulig to create a cup of coffee with a single bean, he happily obliged. Using that one bean ground upon an emory board with water boiled over a candle and everything else in miniature, Zanotto very gracefully created the world’s smallest cup of coffee.

Paulig asked me to make a cup of coffee out of one bean.
