I love coffee. As any great lover of coffee will tell you, you have to have the right gear or you won’t get the right coffee. Personally, I’m a french press man with a penchant for South American 100% arabica coffee, a trait I think I picked up from my father.
When to comes to cups, I go for a medium sized, thick ceramic design with a solid handle and an ivory/off-white colour. I happened to stumble across this almost perfect cup by Intelligentsia, a Chicago based coffee roaster extraordinaire and instantly liked it, they sell them here for $12 USD a pop if, like me, you’re in the market for a new mug.
