The first leader to be honored as part of this activity was former South African President Nelson Mandela. Now is the turn of Israel's President Shimon Peres, who will be celebrating his 90th birthday in August.


Using 6,000 paper cups of coffee in different shades of color, the brand's representatives created a mosaic of the president, which went on display Thursday at the Tel Aviv Port and is set to break Jacobs’s own Guinness World Record.


The mosaic was assembled for about six hours together with Israeli designer Roman Bronditz'nsky, who was hired by the Jacobs company for the project.
