Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

MUG: Hand thrown coffee mug from Marshall Pottery in East Texas. Made in the 1950-60s by Senior Potter Lawrence Houston (it's signed with a stamp).

COFFEE: Colombian, Finca Alta Guadalupe. Roasted to perfection at Central Market Westgate.

NOTE: The cup is old. Got it at a thrift store in Far North Dallas.

The coffee is new. My usual Colombian coffee (Santander) has been less than satisfying recently, and I was excited to find this bean. It rivals the fantastic Colombian San Roque from La Colombe Torrefaction that I got through Der Kuchen Laden in Fredericksburg.

The idea that this mug was made in Marshall is borrowed from my memories. No verification.

The blue is the blue stripe over the grey salt glaze. This is in the German-American 'Westerwald' tradition.
