Black Hole Coffee (“The Theory of Everything”)
Why I Love This Recipe
“The Theory of Everything” tells the story of Stephen Hawking - the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time. Early in the story we see him meet Jane Wilde and fall in love before being diagnosed with a fatal illness at the tender age of 21. From there he fights seemingly insurmountable odds to become the successor to Einstein, as well as a father to three children. To quote Mr. Hawking, his experience is proof that “no matter how bad life might be, while there is life there is hope." While on a train he looks down at a cup coffee and notices how the cream swirls in one direction. For most people this observation would be inconsequential, but for Hawking it inspires the theory that time can be reversed all the way back to the beginning. This recipe celebrates scientific brilliance and our love of coffee.
