Who needs to consume caffeine to boost her creativity

when she can,

well …

hear it?

Wait just a minute,” you’re saying.

(I can picture you leaning your ear down toward your coffee mug.)

“My coffee isn’t chatting, MJ. Mum’s the word.”

Let’s start over.

I’ll try to be more, ah, scientific this time.

Research shows

(and everybody knows)

that a loud workplace can be distracting and downright frazzling.

But, it’s also true that creativity can be tough to come by in a completely quiet space.

(Insert cricket chirping here.)

Enter Coffitivity.

That’s right:


Based on studies (again, scientific) that show coffee shop noise to be the perfect mix of calm and commotion to spur productivity, this jazzy new webapp promises, “Ambient sounds to boost your workday creativity!”

In other words, you can now get the stimulation of a coffee shop (sans cappuccino) wherever you may be.

    In my household, we call the morning beverage, “life giving coffee”.

    Since I don’t live within 30 miles of a coffee shop, (There is a diner about 7 miles away.) I just have to rely on the homestyle brew.

    Frankly, I wouldn’t even want to drive to the nearest coffee shop without having first consumed my “life giving coffee”.

    Aren’t studies a hoot? We are all just “guniea pigs”.

    Does it come with the smell features as well?? I think it is also that fabulous coffee odor wafting over the counter from the grinding beans that inspires me!! Decaf soy latte please!

    I think I’d rather listen to classical, new age or jazz music in the background and have people I’m familiar with going about their business in the background. Add coffee and you have the happy life.

    The one thing that is wrong with total silence is that it makes you jump when it abruptly ends. So, perhaps a bit of noise is a good thing. But, I prefer the coffee smell along with the coffee noise, too!
