    I’ve been using this for the past week, with music on top, and it’s been excellent. Somehow much more relaxing than music alone.

    Coffi tivity makes me think of satin lining and brass handles.

    Great idea, however an actual, single ambient recording of a coffee shop may have been preferable. As it stands – it’s looped, I know it’s looped, I’m now looking out for the loops, and the more I hear the repeated “I shouldn’t!” in the mix, the more irritable I become.

    Perhaps this is best for calmer folk.

    You call that a coffee shop?  It sounds like a big gigantic cafeteria filled with 100 people, and an echo.  I demand small intimate coffee shop ambience!

    I can’t wait for Coffitivity 2.0 – now with more annoying hipsters!

    Heh, I just watched the second episode of the show Black Mirror that gets mentioned here and this precisely the sort of Stuff Bing went on about.

    I prefer – same idea. Ironically I usually stick on rainymood to block *out* the cafe noise.

    Maybe I should try both at the same time.

    Chatterblocker, which I have used on and off for the last few years, does much the same thing, but has many user selectable sound mixing options.  It’s an installable program. not a web app, and does cost $10.

    As I was listening to Coffitivity, the tab with the “Very bad ways to wake up” video started autoplaying. 

    I thought I had listened too long or something as it turned into the most unpleasant coffee shop ever.
