i have a friend that says she likes her coffee the color of cardboard, and another who likes it the color of cafe au lait. my husband likes his with light cream, and personally i like a tawny cup, not too white.


better to explain it with this cup from sam and jude, aka the clever fellows at suck uk.



use this clever mug in the mornings and save your words for later on in the day when you’re more awake.

$25 at generate (regrettably, teacup is sold out at the moment).

    I think my exact color is Pantone 601.

    hi bob,

    hah! but is it on the cup? 🙂

    Love the Pantone 601, technabob!

    What a great idea! I definitely like more milk or cream. I don’t drink coffee, but when I was trying to like it, there was often more milk than coffee. What a great whimsical gift for the artist who has everything, no?
    (although, how many artists that aren’t starving and “have everything” do you know?…just a thought)

    hi bri,

    do you drink tea? i like both and am saddened to have to say that i am a full blown caffeine addict. i need that perk in the morning!

    hmmm, whether the artist is starving or not, i bet they might like a nice cup of something. with colors inside the mug. 🙂

    thanks for stopping by!

    I love tea. Lately I’ve been on an organic decaf earl grey with lots of bergamot kick. Yum, especially with half and half or cream as an indulgence. Yes, a nice cup of something, with colors in the mug is nice.

    ooh! ooh! i always was a tea purist until i poured milk in it one day. that is the stuff.

    i have an organic bluberry tea that is REALLY good. your comment is making me want to go downstairs and make one right now!
