Though he didn’t know it and we didn’t know it, Federico Fellini, Italian filmmaker and renowned auteur, needed us. We weren’t there! We didn’t yet exist! But we would have been happy to have served him. Here he is drinking someone else’s coffee, with his Oscar. He said:
I’m up at six in the morning. I walk around the house, open windows, poke around boxes, move books from here to there. For years I’ve been trying to make myself a decent cup of coffee, but it’s not one of my specialties.
For great artists, who are also coffee-making incompetents, there is now Sudden Coffee. Count your blessings, great artists!
