Yes, this blog is pretty much about muesli only. But once in a while we love to hang out with our pals from Munich-based Green Cup Coffee, who invited us to attend World of Coffee 2012 with them. If you never heard about the World of Coffee events: Apart from a kick-ass coffee fair it’s also hosting the annual World Barista Championships (and some other Championships that only coffee geeks dig). Check out some pictures about the event on the Green Cup blog. The text is German, but you’ll get the idea… and hope to see you next year in Nice!

There are people who love to make music… that’s not news. But it is unusual if a person likes to make music so much that one uses mymuesli tins, with or without the caps, full or empty, bowls, spoons and muesli mixes to make the drum part of a song. Combined with a little bit of electronic music and the right software you get the mymuesli-dance which is composed and produced by the musician and author Rich Schwab. We think this is a great idea. The mymuesli-fan surprised us with a mymuesli-CD – and his composition already is a catchy song, sung over and over by almost everybody in our office (just imagine the muesli-boys singing and dancing). We desperately want to share this song with you:)… and tadaa here on soundcloud you can find the masterpiece.
Maybe you are as creative as Rich and create a mymuesli-dance or video clip which fits to the Rich’s piece of music. We are curious…
You can find more information about Rich Schwab on his homepage, just follow this link
a TV-commercial for German and Austrian Television – filmed and edited entirely on the new iPhone 4. It’s finished now and we’re quite happy with the results. The idea behind this little project was to use the iPhone’s great capabilities to full effect and to create an actual TV-commercial – to be aired on Television for a large audience. Cool thing is: The Skydiver, Bernhard, didn’t drop it. And therefore all of our footage made it’s way into the final movie
But see for yourself:
– Due to iMovie on the iPhone we weren’t able to do any colour corrections, just in case you wondered
– The last two screens (eg logo and domain) were added as Photos first, but the iPhone kept exporting them in very poor quality. Therefore we had to add them in iMovie (on a Mac) afterwards
Thanks to the guys over at Servus TV it will also air on Red BULL TV (Austria) between eleven and twelve PM, Saturday, July 10, 2010.
In Germany Red Bull’s very own TV station is supported by Zattoo – just in case you’re not familiar with their program or can’t watch but online.
The commercial will air on German Television approx. on Friday, 9 July, 2010 or Saturday, 10 July, on ProSieben.
– shot, edited, directed and produced by Christian Kolb, Daniel Setzermann and Max Wittrock from mymuesli
– sky diver: Bernhard Kurz, jump4you.de
– music (making of): „Man” by Rampa, keinemusik.com
Thanks Daniela, glad you like(d) it!
Does Sachin Tendulkar own a bicycle? Probably, but we’re not exactly sure if he really uses it. But since the famous Indian cricketer received a Ferrari 360 Modena from FIAT a few years ago he probably doesn’t need it at last. And I’d assume that it might be a little difficult for the batsmen to ride a bike around town in India – people would literally freak out…
But Oli Broom’s challenge on the opther hand would not be difficult at all if it weren’t for the bicycle. Imagine Oli driving from London to Brisbane in an Italian luxury car. I suppose he wouldn’t raise any money for charities at all.
But Oli has come a long way since we met him at the mymuesli store in Passau, Germany. He cycled about 7,100kms through 15 countries, playing a form of cricket in all but Luxembourg, Slovakia, Jordan and Egypt. There are still more than 18.000kms to go. But were sure that Oli’s gonna make it in time for The Ashes. That man’s just gotta have an ace up his sleeve.
You can follow Oli online on his website “cycling to The Ashes” or read his blog.
Oli at the mymuesli store in 2009:
Begrudgingly, I blog about our trip to the box factory. Knowing what an energy intensive process it is and how environmentally harmful it can potentially be, I can’t say I was excited. But was I pleasantly surprised! They had an enormous solar energy field to feed their machines, and a lot of the paper they used was recycled or from renewable forests plus they’ve been able to reduce the amount of paper they use while strengthening the boxes.
So we all started the day early with coffee or tea and muesli as usual, hopped in the muesli mobiles and headed off to our local box dealer. We got the 411 on how boxes are made, differences between materials and machines, the different processes and so on…. it was pretty rad!:) long story short we designed a new box from 100% recycled paper and using even less materiel is used to make it. Plus we have a lovely and new, eco-friendly mymuesli design so you can show off your boxes as well as your tins! Max even wore the special pants for the occasion. Check out some of the pics:
The Greeks knew that: they made it illegal to export these tasty wonders (you could even suffer the death penalty!) just so their Olympic athletes could munch on them and perform at their best. But don’t worry, we don’t think Canada will start hoarding their figs anytime soon. At vancouver, the fig will certainly be center stage with its tons of good-for-winter nutriments, even if it isn’t as fruity as you may think. It’s actually a “false fruit”, like strawberries (who knew fake could be so good!?), because the flowers are on the inside and become the crunchy seeds we’re so fond of. But despite these oddities this ingredient is nature at it’s best. Not only can it vaunt it’s exquisite nutriments but it follows the season perfectly, fully ripening and partially drying on the tree before going in your muesli. Plus these olympians can be used for just about everything: baking and jams, you can dry them or freeze them or, what we recommend, put them in your muesli! We tried a fruity fig mix that you can check out or have a trip to the mixer to find your heart’s desire.
