Nice coffee mug from Serious Coffee

While visiting in Victoria, BC, I went into the Serious Coffee store on Douglas Street and treated myself to this large, 10 oz ceramic coffee mug. Then took a photo of it right there on their patio.

The mug is pretty nice. The glaze is black and the Serious Coffee logo is actually sand-blasted. In other words, the white you see is not white glaze, but the ceramic beneath the black glaze.

It's a nice, heavy mug and I foresee lots of coffees and lattes being served in it. Yum!

Turkish Coffee Maker.

Unique coffee maker design

Unique coffee maker design

This is described as a Turkish coffee maker, designed by architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte for Sawaya & Moroni.

While it doesn’t look like any Turkish coffee maker I have ever seen, it is a beautifully designed piece. Great photo too.

I bet you won’t find it at your local Wal-Mart.

Top Dog Coffee

Morro Bay Espresso

I'm always on the lookout for a coffee house. While in Morro Bay I found Top Dog. Top dog in Morro Bay was different from other coffee houses that I have been too, they put a minimum of 4 shots in a large latte. The machine they use produces double shots so they go by twos. I am currently building a "Coffee Table" book. As I travel around. I take pictures to add to my book. I'll put a partial book up in a month. I'll place it here on my shutterfly page.

Coffee with Ginger anyone?

by Nick (Coffee Detective)

I found this sign at Heathrow airport in England. The words tell me about coffee...but the picture shows a root of ginger. I kept looking at the sign, thinking I must be missing something, but I couldn't find any explanation for showing ginger on the poster. Unless, of course, those crazy English actually do add ginger to their coffee. Which I don't think is the case.

That said, a quick search on Google reveals that coffee with ginger is popular in the Middle East. I didn't know that.

The SpoonCup coffee stirrer thingie...

by Nick (Coffee Detective)

Disposible coffee stirrer

Disposible coffee stirrer

This unusual looking disposable coffee cup, along with the lid and orange plastic stirrer included, was mailed to us by the manufacturers.

A sample, for our reviewing pleasure.

In the accompanying letter the manufacturer thanked us for dropping by their booth at a recent packaging conference. That was a little weird, as we have never been to a packaging conference.

Anyway, if you own a coffee shop, these guys want you to use their disposable cups, with lid and stirrer included.

The trouble is, although I appreciate free samples most of the time, I can’t make head or tail of this device.

Here is how I understand it...

I pour coffee in the cup, or maybe the barista does it for me. Then I wander over to add milk or cream and some sugar. Once I have done that, I don’t grab a spoon or stir-stick to stir my brew. Instead, I attach this weird orange thing to the lid, then place the lid on my coffee cup, and finally turn a tiny little handle at the top.

I want to be nice to the people who sent me this thing. But...I see no point in this. It looks like just another way to add plastic to my local landfill. What’s wrong with using a spoon or stir-stick?

If the flavour of my coffee depended on continuous stirring, after I left the coffee shop, this would be a fantastic idea.

But I only have to stir my brew once.

Sorry, but I don't think this is a good idea at all.

UCC Coffee in a can

UCC Coffee

UCC Coffee

I went into a Japanese store to get some sushi for lunch and came across this can of cold coffee.

According to the label, UCC is "The pioneer maker of the canned liquid coffee in Japan".

I prefer my coffee hot, but it was still pretty nice.
