C8H10N4O2? The chemical formula for caffeine: Carbon 8, Hydrogen 10, Nitrogen 4, Oxygen 2.

Caffeine is the world’s most used drug: 90% of North American adults consume caffeine daily. For a long time I was planning to shoot these photos, the only thing I had to do was to go and buy some beans, so when Pierre from South Africa sent me coffee beans I had no reason to postpone it.

The organically grown beans Pierre sent had a very mild and fruity flavor and they were roasted at Espressolab Microroasters in South Africa. After the beans were grinded, we had to mix it with some locally roasted, strong, black coffee, in order to give it the kick that we need. Coffee is definitely a drink that has changed the world.
