My virtual coffee shop
I like working in coffee shops. There's something about the sound, about being surrounded by people without needing to interact with them that makes me comfortable, unlocks some creativity.
I'm not the only one. There are a bunch of sites that stream coffee shop sounds. And there's at least one app that lets you download the sounds to your mobile device.
Coffitivity.com is the first one that I used. Unlike some others, they specialize in coffee shop sounds. You can get three different coffee shop streams for free, and three more if you sign up for their premium program. I've got there app, so I can hear coffee sounds without data charges.
MyNoise.net provides you with a bunch of natural and synthetic noises and seems to have the most extensive library of sounds and sound generators. It even lets you calibrate their sounds to your hearing.
Soundrown.com gives you a choice of sounds: coffee shop, rain, waves, fire, and birds.
Rainycafe.com lets you mix the sounds of a coffee shop with the sounds of a cafe.
Noisli.com lets you mix any of a dozen different sound streams. And it provides you with a distraction free editor, as well.
Songza.com is a sound streaming site. One of their streams is In a Busy Coffee Shop. but there's a lot, lot, more. Pick your genre and they'll stream stuff to your taste.
And then there's YouTube. With hours of coffee shop sounds here, and here. and here.
Anyone for coffee?
