Espresso Library, Cambridge, CB1 1BG
‘Caffeine isn’t a drug, it’s a vitamin!’
So I’ve heard it said.
For me enjoying the world’s favourite legal stimulant, is experiencing the tonic of a coffee high nirvana. Now, if you combine caffeine intoxication in the presence of great art, then you’re really flying.
I experienced this euphoric state on Monday when I dropped in on Cambridge’s ‘Espresso Library’ in East Road, on the corner of Parker’s Peace. This venue offers the best of coffee, flying bicycles, amplified conversations and contemporary art.
As I sat nurturing a distinctly rich mocha-java double espresso, taking in its floral aroma’s and fruity tones, I found myself gazing into a ‘Kandinsky’ style concentric circle glass canvas. This kaleidoscope of colour, texture and movement is one of several pieces by Cambridge artist Loukas Morley.

I found myself engaged in a journey of discovery, winding through and around shapes and forms, delving deep into the more intricate parts of the work. Unexpectedly, I was experiencing an endorphin release a rush of euphoria.
Hacking into those happy chemicals combined with my caffeine intoxication, stimulated an empathic connection with Morley’s art.
It’s said, ‘A good day starts with a positive attitude and a great cup of coffee’ From my ‘Espresso Library’ experience, if you include some ‘great art’ you’ll have a ‘great day’
