COFFEE: Nope. Bulleit high-rye KSBW. Not approved by the HRC.
NOTES: Santa left a bottle of Bulleit under the tree, packaged with two of these cute mugs.
MUG: Neiman-Marcus Christmas 1985 mug, made by Waechstersbach in West Germany. The. Best. Mugs.
COFFEE: Eight O'Clock 100% Colombian Peaks coffee, light-medium roast. Beans delivered to my door. Good coffee.
NOTES: This mug is from The Epicurean Shop at the old Neiman's (an in-store purveyor of gourmet goodies). That's not an elf wearing Santa's cap.
MUG: Chinese promotional mug. Stainless steel 14 ounce vacuum-sealed double-walled. Chunky, and without a handle. Big hands required.
COFFEE: Eight O'Clock 100% Colombian Peaks coffee, light-medium roast. My coffee of choice in retirement (if I'm buying). Really, surprisingly, good stuff.
NOTES: I bought a 2-1/2 lb. bag of the whole bean coffee (once-upon-a-time A&P Grocery's house brand) for use as "church coffee" when I started brewing at home and taking three vacuum air-pots to church on Sundays... pre-Wuhan Covid. I liked it so much, I quit buying from my local micro roaster.
As for the Groucho quote, see the photo below. My MINI Big Bend Bash sticker covers up a Bass Pro Club logo on the other side.
