These magnified coffee bean photographs were captured by artist and photographer William LeGoullon.

The intricate details are easily seen as the coffee beans were photographed through a microscope. Every tiny crack, dent and minuscule crater looks like a crevice on the moon. LeGoullon's past experience as a barista is where he found the inspiration behind his beverage culture and craft influence.

The artist's choice of revealing every single entity in the coffee beans shows the audience a visual understanding of what they enjoy and what they're consuming on a daily basis. One doesn't really take the time to look intensely at a single coffee bean yet it's something people encounter almost everyday. Check out William LeGoullon's collection to examine what your morning cup of coffee is made of.
