Beethoven’s Coffee Obsession

Everyone is taught at school that the gifted classical composer Beethoven wrote some of the world’s most fantastic pieces of orchestral music, but what we don’t get to learn about the man is that he had a coffee obsession. Like most of us who enjoy a cup of coffee, it has to be just right for us to enjoy it, Beethoven, however, took this to obsessive levels.

Born into a musical family, Ludvig Van Beethoven learned the fundamentals of musical composition from his father at a very young age. His father was a court singer, but also a drunkard.  Young Beethoven endured severe punishments and disciplinary actions. As a result, Beethoven developed obsessive tendencies.

One of his noted obsessions was how he’d meticulously hand count 60 coffee beans. He had to personally prepare it in his glass coffee-maker, even when his guests were around.
