ooh... I like this one... :) I keep shopping for china and not picking a set though...
Richard,You're a little eccentric. Some might say fey.
We've come to the point that we're thankful to be served in a mug, rather than in a paper cup.However, your quite right: a mug is not a proper cup.
Yes....yes.....yes !!!! Those 30 gallon mugs that people use are not for civilized people. And paying for the priviledge of advertising for a coffee company is absurd. A cup should hold, not more than about...a cup. Splendid observation and one called for in our sometimes whacked out world.
Love the fact that the dog is begging at the bottom of the photo
Why is your pinky not sticking out?
Good point Richard! However. real WASPs drink tea not coffee. Moreover the most hard core WASPs are also known to double duty their fine china cups and saucers to quaff Scotch, Rye and Bourbon!
Coffee? Seriously? WTF?! I do not drink the stuff and I do not allow the C-word to be uttered in my presence. Ever. If I could ban coffee, I would.
I do not drink coffee either, but I figure most of the masses do. Let's take baby steps and at least get them drinking out of a proper cup first.
What's this no coffee for WASPs business? This must be some kind of imagined affection.What kind of tea do you prefer Richard? I'm on a steady diet of Twinings English Breakfast loose leaf and Mighty Leaf Orange Dulce. Though not deemed "WASPy" from here forward, some Peet's Italian Roast stovetop espresso when I really need an eye-opener.
Lckily for the coffee shops, there are not that many wasps, but your coment about using china rather than paper is on the mark.i think they should print a message on the paper cup esolling the virtues of using china.if paper cups have to be used they should be disposed of thoughtfully, see http://www.thepapercupcompany.co.uk/content_environmental_information.php
Richard,I have my coffee in my Staffordshire "Hunt Scene" china cup and saucer. If I drink tea I prefer a more robust flavor of the Darjeeling tea from India.
Yes, it's a wonderful blog with very nice Pictures.
My parents just recently ditched proper cups for gigantic mugs, after having used the old cups without their saucers for years. They said that the saucers served no practical purpose and wasted dishwater.I'm a little nostalgic now for the old cups with accompanying saucers that my grandparents used to use--perhaps only because they remind me of them.At least the new mugs have the Chicago Symphony Orchestra logo on them instead of advertising for a coffee shop! That's a hair more sophisticated, don't you think?The only good reason I can think of to use high capacity mugs instead of the more elegant cup-saucer duo is when one is in college like me. I am willing to sacrifice elegance for washing convenience and fewer trips to the kitchen to re-fill my hot beverage. I imagine that when I get a place of my own, I'll want to go back to proper coffee/tea cups.Cheers.
So what about when traveling to work? A ceramic mug seems improper?
