Fuelish obsession.

MUG: Diner mug from Fuel Coffee in Seattle. Probably made in the Far East. Thick. Heavy. Good lip. ten ounce capacity. I love this design.

COFFEE: Barrett's Colombian Supremo. Good stuff well roasted. The Swiss Army Knife of coffees.

NOTES: I saw a friend in Seattle post a picture of this mug, and I had to have one. It's not just the mug design, but it's the logo inspired by the old Gulf Oil Corporation logo. It works on so many levels for me.

A shot at the dark.

MUG: Double-walled blown glass 2 ounce shot glass from Bodum (made in China).

COFFEE: Colombian Supremo light/medium roast espresso. Contrary to popular opinion, coffee doesn't need to be 'dark roast' to make a kick butt espresso. It does need to be strong. It is. 12 grams of ground coffee to make 1.5 ounces of liquid.

NOTES: I'll sleep when I'm dead (temporarily).
