It took dozens of people almost four years to make the unique coffee bean walls in Krušetnica in the Orava region.

“On the inner walls of the two-floor house are stuck more than 4 million coffee beans. Together, they make a mosaic with an area of 107 square metres. The author of the unique object is Roman Florek, who created it with the help of his parents and friends. The mosaic was registered in The Book of Slovak Records,” said commissioner of The Book of Slovak Records Igor Svítok for the TASR newswire.

Svítok continued that the skilled waiter also got another certificate. The second is for the highest number of exhibited showpieces connected with the production and preparation of coffee. There are 537 pieces placed in the museum.

“This young coffee-lover knows and buys coffee beans from different countries of the world. He roasts it on a machine in the museum and creates a taste of coffee according to his vision,” added Svítok.

Florek is planning to register his creation also in Guinness Book of World Records.
