MUG: Spanish Waechtersbach, imprinted for the Art Institute of Chicago. As an artist/art historian friend of mine said (paraphrased), "The thing I like most about Modernism is the artists' signatures."
All the usual stellar attributes of the Waechtersbach cylinder mug... now in stylish black, with red accents.
COFFEE: Las Mingas from Cuvee Coffee. "Milk chocolate aroma, lavender and brown sugar. Creamy body with a whiskey and pear finish. Located in Nariño, a state in western Colombia, the Las Mingas farms sit at about 6500 feet above sea level. These 'fincas' (farms) are only about 3 acres on average, often bounded by steep cliffs and natural waterfalls. The coffee itself is often shade-grown under a natural canopy of plantain, orange, and guamos trees."
Another Caturra coffee from Colombia's Huila region. I like these coffees.
NOTE: I think I now have the complete edition. Red, White, Blue, Grey, and now Black. Am I missing one?
