For many people, especially those who often work from home (like yours truly), a trip to the local coffee shop can lead to a major productivity boost. Apparently, unbeknownst to most, there’s science to that phenomenon: the level of ambient noise common in coffee shops has been proven to increase creativity.

This fact was the catalyst for Coffitivity, a charming site created by Justin KauszlerNicole Horton and ACe Callwood, which simply pipes ambient coffee shop noise right into your ears.

Interestingly, the site’s developer, Kauszler, only started learning to code last month.

See the project for yourself via the link below. For something similar, you should also check out Rainy MoodCalm.com and Coding.fm.
