MUG: Previously featured, a pink Death's Head with a resist block glaze. Made in Germany by Waechtersbach.
COFFEE: A new one (sort of). Colombian from Huilda, Alto Finca Guadalupe. Roasted by Tyler at Central Market Westgate.
NOTES: An excellent cup of coffee, served in a great mug.

MUG: Chinese decorator/novelty/souvenir mug. The decoration is interesting not just for the Gonzales Battle Flag design, but for the use of black trim on the base, lip, and handle. A happy coincidence or an intentional motif design? The lip is nicely receptive, the squat shape and flared base creates a sense of stability hat the fairly thin walls of the mug seem to need. And best of all, a gift from my daughter.
COFFEE: Ethiopian Sidamo, roasted by Tyler last week at Central Market Westgate.
NOTES: October 2nd, 1835 marks the beginning of the Texas Revolutionary War.

MUG: 16 ounce polypropylene tumbler with lid and an orange straw. That pretty much says it all.
COFFEE: Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee, something called "Dark Roast."
NOTES: On the way back from my pre-dawn cardio-rehab session, I stopped at our new Dunkin' Donuts location for a tall, cold one. I hadn't been in a DD since 1970. I mistakenly let them put 'cream' in it, but I stopped the sugar application before it was too late. Neither good nor bad, but certainly not bearing any of the flavor characteristics of a 'dark roast' coffee.
