Editor's Pick

Forget white noise. Is the bustle of a coffee shop, accompanied by sounds of milk steamers and the clinking of coffee cups, just what you need to be productive? Coffitivity thinks so. The site, which plays ambient sounds of a coffee shop, was inspired by research that shows that those sounds are actually at the right level to help stimulate creativity.

The service is free and can be played on your browser or mobile devices. You can switch from modes like 'Lunchtime Lounge' to 'Morning Murmur' to even 'University Undertones,' and tailor the experience to your taste.
