Den 1. januar 2005, besluttede Lloyd Asato at dokumentere alle kopper kaffe han skulle drikke det år:
“The year is 2005 and it is time to reflect upon my life and there is no better accomplement than a freshly brewed cup of Peets. Thus begins The Year of Coffee, an honest look through the lense of Major Dickason. I secretly hope that I live something heroic or tragic though I suspect it may be a fluffy romantic comedy. Whatever is revealed will be shared here. It begins as an unflinching search for truth, but may end up as just a photo album of mugs of coffee.”
Hver dag tog Lloyd et billed eller to af en kop kaffe, som han lagde på sin blog sammen med en hurtig kommentar.
Den 31. december 2005 offentliggjorde han billed nr. 1000:
“I did not achieve enlightenment, but it did warm me up. My one-thousandth cup of 2005 was a latte from that place at the end of Mill Avenue. It was yummy, though the pastry sucked.”
Og nu har han så lavet en video med alle 1000 billeder, det tager mindre end 2 minutter at se den.
