How to Make the World’s Smallest Cup of Coffee!! Uses Just One Bean!!

/ by

This is what you make when you’re looking for a little pick-me-up, a tiny boost to get you through the day… the world’s smallest cup of coffee!

Paulig, a Finnish coffee roaster, hired animator and director Lucas Zanotto to create this wee cup o’ joe as an ad.

How do you make the world’s smallest (?) cup of coffee? Well, you first find a single coffee bean…


and grind it with a nail file…


Then, carefully put those grinds into the paper cone.


Now it’s time to heat up your water, over a tea light NATURALLY!


Pour your hot water over the grinds and let it drip…


Then it’s time to pour your freshly-dripped coffee into a teeny-tiny mug… as so…


Well, just watch for yourself!

    It’s operation called “The Joy of a Homeopath”?
    Probably, in this case the process itself should help to cheer up. A lot of actions requiring great accuracy and attention. And coffee – just the last drop … Thank you, Pee-wee, although I also doubt that this is the smallest cup. It is possible make less. True it is necessary to use for it a microscope, but this is not so important…

  • This is wonderful Paul, because it goes to show that you can still start your day with the iniiest tiniest shot of coffee (caffeine buzz going on ?) Have a beautiful Zen day! ❤️
