Tiny story: Golden Beans


Alex learned how to play the bass at age of thirteen by watching YouTube tutorials, three years later her band played every weekend at a small café downtown. They named the band Golden Beans and managed to hit more than one million plays of their post-punk music on social media platforms. One of their songs went viral while they were recording themselves drinking coffee inside a coffee plantation. Little they knew that it would be a one-hit-wonder. 

That day Dan, the drummer, stole fresh seeds jokingly saying that they were magical, and all managed to run away without getting caught. As long as they had those seeds, they were going to be famous forever. Alex laughed but didn´t hesitate to take one of the seeds as an amulet. Whenever she needed to compose a song, she had to carry the seed with her.

What they didn´t know is that the coffee plantation belonged to no one, it was cursed and the family owners disappeared without leaving a trace. Although the harvest was abundant, no one wanted to pick it up and it was left there to rot. 

During those three years, they kept playing at the café without being noticed. People thought they were playing a cover song from that thirty-second viral video at a random coffee plantation. They played the same songs every night without knowing how they got there in the first place. None of them revealed that they kept those coffee beans stolen from that abandoned coffee plantation.
