Green fire

MUG: Waechstersbach "green fire" glazed 10 ounce, made-in-Germany, perfect mug.

COFFEE: Not coffee, but Campbell's Cream of Tomato soup, with a healthy dose of Tabasco Sauce.

NOTES: Soup out of a coffee mug is an oddly satisfying experience... especially if it's Tomato soup with Tabasco pepper sauce.

Mini Sipper

MUG: Not a mug, but a cup... and a demitasse cup at that. Porcelain espresso cup from Crate & Barrel, made in Viet Nam.

COFFEE: French Roast (no bean specified) from What's Brewing Coffee Roasters in San Antonio. This roaster was my standard supplier, purchased from Central Market, for several years before moving to Hays County. So even though I am 220 miles closer than I used to be, I'm actually too far away now (Central Market was convenient to me in Dallas, whereas Austin's isn't).

NOTES: The cup was a Christmas present from my lovely wife. No saucers.
