Black, with 2 milk and 2 sugar, strong, soft or light, in a big, small, medium or XXXL mug, every one needs to start the day with a tea or a coffee, if for example you try to find a substitute to your traditional black coffee!
To take-away or not, every cup every mug was I think created for a very good reason. I remember when I was a kid, we went with my parents in a tour in Spain, and after a lunch in a traditional restaurant my dad order a coffee, the waiter came with a tiny little brown sunny cup of coffee. The cup was, like a size of a dice, so the coffee inside was the size to the container, very small, ultra small if I remember well, my parents use to understand the reason why, but for me it will be a mistake, cause who would like to drink and pay for a coffee that size? In fact one little tiny coffee in Spain is actually very strong, and you should stay awake one entire week if you will have a normal size, cause those little coffee dice are so concentrate you just need to drink the bottom of a tiny cup to feel alive like ever!!!
I think my dad make me just deep my lips into his cup, and wow wow, bitter and strong it was, you have to drink it in one shoot, and you can speak spanish almost right after that…
More seriously, each cup have a real use, big or extra small, everything is a story of intensity.
Me I prefer most of the time get a normal mug size, and then sometimes an expresso, in a traditional expresso cup, with or without sugar, depends my mood!
Coffee is for me like a real addiction, but one of the most bad and good thing at the same time, is a sweet coffee with some drop of milk and sugar inside, and that god, can kill myself, I like it a lot, but my body, didn’t really share my taste so, Once in a while, this could be like a little plaisure I offer to me…
Today, I would like to show you how he could be important just for to match your mood to see your mugs differently, and then maybe drink your coffee and think about there is so much behind this black liquid, there is friends, memories, sharing moments, but also relaxing moments with a good book or a magazine, with or without a cigarette, cause of course, for the people who smoke, the coffee is like the best friend ever! How many famous directors used to make movies just around those two subjects?
So, here is our little mug collection, there are used to be more, but you have to appreciate them, cause they will break sometimes, and when this moment arrive, it could be sad to through your broken mug in the garbage!
