Three Cuppa Thursday

I love coffee cups. When I started teaching, we used to get coffee cups from students all the time but that tradition seems to have faded. So now I buy my own. They have to be very lovely to earn a spot on my cup rack. There is one cup I have seen on Helen Stewart’s Instagram that makes my heart swoon but I have not yet found that up. For now, these are my current favorite cups.

The blue striped cup is about 8 oz. and perfect for an afternoon cuppa, usually a mushroom coffee with a bit of oat milk.

I first visited Think Coffee when I was in New York City, helping my sister find an apartment when she was relocating. I love the idea of a coffee shop with a mission. At Christmas that year I purchased cups and coffee for my coffee loving daughters. This is a lager cup, perfect for that first morning cuppa but it is a bit worn after three years of daily use.

The cup on the right is another smaller cup and the perfect vessel for a creamy, almond milk matcha.

Monday in the Kitchen – coffee

I love my morning coffee.  We have a coffee maker that has a timer so the coffee is ready before my feet hit the floor.  A hot Cuppa coffee with my morning reading time gets my day off to a great start.

Recently, Kat mentioned that her Moka was a necessary kitchen tool.  I had to look it up but when I saw the picture, I remembered bringing a similar coffee gadget home when we cleaned out mom and dad’s house.   I believe they bought it on a trip to Italy and it looks like they haven’t made this model since the 60’s.  Fun!  So, I have investigated how to use this little coffee maker.  The knob on top is missing but my husband thinks he can replace it.   Can’t wait to give it a try.
