Die Grosse Mug

Cappuccino from my Saeco Estro Vapore espresso machine, with a cocoa and chili powder dusting.

A giant Waechtersbach cappuccino mug (how appropriate) from the Crate & Barrel Outlet Store. Nobody does red glaze like Waechtersbach (not even the old, radioactive Fiestaware).

Temperature outside was 74F yesterday. Twenty four hours later it's 35F, windy and raining. "Mr. Summer! Your horses are out of your pasture again!"

Jacked up.

MUG: Crate & Barrel espresso cup and saucer. Clean design, simple and just slightly elegant.

COFFEE: Community Coffee espresso roast, brewed with our genuine Italian pump espresso maker.

NOTES: Out of Colombian this morning, so I hit the hard stuff.

COFFEE: The Colombian of preference. Stout and high.

MUG: Texas novelty bistro mug. One of my favs.

NOTE: The words on the mug are U.S. Reresentative David Crockett's parting words to Tennessee (whose citizens had just voted him out of office). Happy Texas Independence Day.

Buffalo Chips

MUG: Diner mug from Buffalo Pottery. Thick, dense, heavy, very satisfying. Made in tha USA.

COFFEE: Brazilian Estate at Cafe Brazil in Deep Ellum. Thin, weak, light, not at all satisfying.

NOTES: Lunch with Chip Seal. Cafe Brazil's coffee seems much more like normal, run of the mill restaurant coffee nowadays. The food was good, though (or so Chip said).
