Instead of grinding coffee beans for a morning brew, artist Saimir Strati has taken on a massive mosaic project made of approximately one million coffee beans. The piece features five characters who each represent a different continent. The objective is to display a sense of unity across the world.

Strati, who is based in Albania, is known for setting records with his meticulously labor-intensive creations and this installation entitled One World, One Family, One Coffee is no exception. The mosaic artist began the construction of this project, which is 25 square meters and weighs 140kg, in Tirana, Albania. He intends to complete the piece by December 12, 2011 to enter the Guinness World Records book yet again.
