Friday blues

MUG: It's a Fiesta. Made in the U.S.A. by Homer Laughlin Company as part of their Fiestaware™ brand of ceramic ware. Fiestaware is all about color, and this particular mug's color is Peacock.

COFFEE: Barrett's Colombian Supremo Estate, mill-ground, drip-brewed, slurped-down.

NOTES: This is a Fiestaware mug with a mug handle. Prior Fiestaware mug designs were enlarged versions of their teacup, with a mug body, and a one finger trigger-guard handle. Never liked them. Too dainty for a mug. This one attempts to rectify the situation, but I still find the design of the mug unsatisfying. Can't put my finger on the problem (although I can put three fingers through the handle).
