Everybody’s got them, yes we do however you might be that odd ball that doesn’t. In my 44 years on this planet, I have only met 2 people that didn’t partake, however still had some. We used them everyday while performing this daily ritual. Some people can’t start the day with out it, or function for that fact. We use during the morning, on-the-go, brunch, lunch, afternoon pick-me-up, and also when winding down the day while munching on a biscotti or two.
Flat White, Macchiato, Frappe, Galao, Americano, Steeped, have you figured it out yet? We are asking for a creative picture, black & white or colour of.... you guessed it … “Coffee cups”. I want to see those creative juices flowing. You can also use espresso or tea cups, let your creative mind go wild. Above is an example of my favourite coffee cup. I got this cup during a family vacation in Price Edward Island in 2017. Took the photo yesterday while, you guessed it, enjoying a delicious double espresso latte while winding down the evening.
