The Sweet Sounds Of Your Morning Coffee

There are many small pleasures that come with making a cup of coffee, from the warm mug in your hands to that first sip. But one thing you might not think about is the sound. Thankfully, composer and sound designer Diego Stocco decided to make a video that highlights this oft-forgotten aspect of coffee making.

Using some custom built waterproof microphones, along with other gear, he was able to capture everything from the shake of a sugar packet to the pouring of the brew itself - and the results sound surprisingly epic.

I remember the gurgling of the manual percolator on the stove that had to be watched closely and the heat turned down to prevent boiling over... blub, blub-blub, until like Ravel's Bolero increases in its intensity even as the scent/color of the coffee in the little glass bulb in the lid. I always let it breathe in my cup reaching a comfortable temperature while still giving off steam for both nasal and taste bud enjoyment.
