What is your Coffee Cup Telling You
I was never a big coffee drinker until I move here to Germany. I never understood the fascination of coffee. Coffee always smelled good to me but tasted nasty. When I use to work at McDonald as a teen one of my responsibility was to make coffee. A few times in drive thru we were low on coffee or was out of caffeinated/decaf. So sometime I would mix both coffee we had together not thinking they had a certain taste. They look the same and smell the same too me. Heck they both was nasty too. But the customers knew the difference and so did my coworkers.
Coming here to Germany my husband said that we must have a coffee machine at home. It is the German custom to offer people tea or coffee. My attitude back then was to offer people water. My coffee abilities sucked big time as you read above and I always have bottle of mineral water on hand. Therefore, John mention that he will teach me to use the machines and how to make coffee. We have went through 3 coffee machines all different training. Each one had a newer function and was getting to the Starbucks coffee taste he love. We recently invest in a new coffee machine about three months back. So far it is a keeper and I am loving it! It is high tech and taste exactly like Starbucks coffee. It makes many style of coffees, create thick creamy milk foam, I can program my own style of drink and so can John. We don’t have to reset it each time. The program comes in many different languages. It is so easy to clean and maintain. We just need a higher table for it to sit on, but I am quite picky. I would like something dark brown with a hint of cherry or maple wood, a bit slender, and have a bottle rack underneath to hold all the wine and sekts bottle. My kitchen is getting ridiculous again. So I am still keeping an eye open every where we go.
I have been looking at coffee cups for some time now. Once we get the table I would like to have variety of coffee cups style for each form of coffee if possible. So far I have bought the Latte glass coffee cups and it was well worth it. I smile like a big kid when I see the separation. My neighbor for a gift gave me a small espresso size cup and plate set. I plan to try it on the weekend to see if it pass if not I will look for those too which will be easy to find. I think the cappuccino cups will be a bit of a challenge. I like things that stand out and give a nice cool look. Browsing through Amazon I found a few coffee cups that crack me up or thought how disgusting who would drink from that. I will post the photos below so that you can see what I am talking about.
Do you have a special type of coffee you like or a funny cup saying a few words or stand out from others? IF you don’t what would your coffee cups say and why?
