Recaffeinate! Recaffeinate!

MUG: Chinese-made ceramic shot cup.

COFFEE: A dalik-roast (Full City+) organic, Fair Trade, Colombian coffee from Redbud Roasters in San Marcos.

NOTES: A BBC-licensed Doctor Who espresso cup. This was a Christmas gift from my eldest daughter, along with some Schulenburg spicy peanuts, and some German Scho-Ka-Kola caffeinated dark chocolate wedges. Love that kid!

Santa Anna Claus

T's for Texas.

MUG: Tumbler, plastic, 20 ounce ice tea glass.

COFFEE: Tea, Luzianne black tea.

NOTE: This is the standard way iced tea is served in Texas. As a child, before the days of 'sweet tea', I recall seeing hard-working construction workers and carpenters fill these tumblers 1/4 of the way up with "Quick dissolving Imperial Pure Cane sugar." After some flirtation with sugar, I grew up to be an 'unsweetened' fellow.

Pick me up.

MUG: Styrofoam cup. I understand that cockroaches and styrofoam cups are all that will survive the apocalypse.

COFFEE: Texas Select (?) blend from Ranch Road Roasters (?) in Fredericksburg, Texas. As served (and consumed) at Mahaley's Cafe. Decent coffee in a town not known for such.

NOTES: To get good light, I set the cup on the floor of the old gas station the restaurant occupies.

Motel Hell

MUG: Paper cup from the motel room. Printed down the side is the warning, "Do NOT Microwave!"

COFFEE: Kwikjava 'Premium Blend Fresh Roasted' from the Kwikcafe across the street.

NOTE: This is why I usually carry my own coffee making tools and pre-ground coffee on trips. I didn't for this overnight trip.
