MUG: Chinese-made cafe mug with vaguely French pretensions. Decent volume, thick casting but a bit light for the thickness. Perhaps not very durable. The inverted-cone design has a nice fluted foot for stability. There is good tactile lip feel, but an undersized finger handle. Sur La Table branded. Non-microwaveable.
COFFEE: Medium-roast El Tigre Costa Rican from the "Fast Forward" line of the roaster, Counter Culture Coffee (based in and shipped from Asheville North Carolina).
NOTES: A nice cup... both the ceramics and the contents. Hat-tip to my wife Linden for bringing the cup home, and to Herr Doktor Smith for his kindness in sending coffee from his Nirvana.
