Coffee Cup View

Helsinki, 18 degrees


As soon as coffee is in your stomach, there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move...similes arise, the paper is covered. Coffee is your ally and writing ceases to be a struggle.

Glistening water. Sea breeze. Warm rays of sun. This Tuesday Helsinki woke up for once sunny, so I decided to spend most of my day outside. I got inspired by a note in a magazine telling about Coffee Cup View, a website dedicated to images of coffee cups all over the world. The slogan for the website is "See the world through another coffee lover's eyes."

I thought it was an interesting way to perceive the world, and when I only found three photos taken in Helsinki, I thought it was my duty as a coffee and Helsinki lover to take my very own photo and add it to the website. I'm still waiting for the website maintenance to accept it to the website, but I'll show it to you nevertheless. This is how beautiful Helsinki looked today from my point of view, with an ice cold chocolate frappe with double espresso. Heaven!

These were the other three photos of coffee with a view in Helsinki that already existed on the website.
