Going back in time.

MUG: Chinese-made 10 ounce ceramic barrel mug. Thin walled, but fairly heavy. Ironstone?

COFFEE: Colombia Granja la Esperanza Bourbon from Bluebottle Coffee Company in Oakland, California. We got a sample bag of beans (one pot) to entice us into an ongoing mail-order delivery scheme. The coffee is good, but no thanks. I'll stay with my local roaster who delivers via Fedex.

NOTES: This mug was purchased years ago in the Menger Hotel gift shop in San Antonio. If you are going to San Antonio, you owe it to yourself to stay at the Menger... in the original wing. Nothing wrong with the newer sections, but all the ghosts live in the old building.
