Every stone flipped
And impossibility discounted
In adventure tripped;
All improbability surmounted.

Caffeine & Concrete

Inspiring people to share their stories over coffee, wrapped up in typographic concrete poetry.

Caffeine & Concrete
is an ongoing independent magazine and blog which explores the philosophy of creators who have fashioned lifestyles which aren’t a binary split between work and home life.

Expressed through verbatim translations of interviews (over coffee) and concrete poetry inspired typography, Caffeine & Concrete attempts to record some of the wisdom that is often lost in everyday conversation.
