The Kettle

Mug: Another old Starbucks mug, this time an early attempt at a stainless steel insulated mug. As with the earlier ceramic mug of the same design I showed earlier, this is a "pre-cupholder" design meant to sit on the dashboard. It has a "non-slip" bottom but unless you drive a VW new beetle, it's pretty worthless as a car mug.

It retains heat very well. The tactile experience at lips and fingers is OK, but not great. It looks like a pot-still, and that's why I like it.

Coffee: Colombian from Central Market, a.k.a. "The base". I'm alternating the home-roasted sampler-pack of beans from Sweet Maria's with the CM Colombian beans to keep a standard.
