World’s Largest Coffee Mosaic Made of 1 Million Coffee Beans

If you like coffee and art then this is for you! Russian artist Arkady Kim has recently created the world’s largest coffee bean mural which was unveiled in Moscow’s Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure.

“The Awakening” was made out of 1 million coffee beans and took twelve days to complete. Weighing 397 pounds and spanning about 30 square meters it beats the previous record by Albanian artist Saimir Strati by 88 pounds and 5 square meters.

To get different shades, coffee beans were roasted. Later, they were glued one-by-one to a giant panel.

The stunning mosaic was on exhibit until July 1 at Moscow’s Gorky Park.
