The simple pleasures!

Evening Gents. We were unpacking more boxes this evening and we came accross my two favorite coffee cups. The porcelain cup is from Fort Laramie, Wyoming. It's an exact copy of the cups used at the fort when it was operational in the late 1880s. The other one is an artic birch cup from Northern Norway I received as a gift from family there. They make me smile.

    Thanks! Drinking coffee from a wooden cup is a great experience.

    Sweet guksi, chipping one out of some native timber is on my to do list.

    Good looking breakfast hardware! A little on the smallish side for me, but the next step for me will be the Binford CoffeeMax home I.V. kit!

    Dad has a lot of his Navy career memorialized in his coffee mugs, from different ships, commands, and programs he worked. Over my own career, I carried on that tradition with my own collection from various programs.

    They hold a lot of memories along with good coffee...

    The wooden one reminds me of my now late FIL (Father in law). He had a small French press for coffee. The wooden spoon he used was half black at the bottom as he would make coffee that looked like used 30W oil.

    I had to buy coffee mugs at each command and did not even drink coffee at the time.

    Very cool, I'm really digging the birch cup from Northern Norway, but you know me I like most anything done in nice looking wood! Great find!
    Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    How so?

    Forgive me, I don't drink coffee.
    It just enhances the flavor, and is a mellow warm cup to hold in the hand. It doesn't get hot as some cups can.

    Hmmm, I'll have to tell my wife and son about that. Both huge coffee fans. Our son manages a Starbucks.

    When you use a wood cup you are pretty much stuck drinking black coffee. Milk and sugar will sour the cup, and ruin it.

    Yes I have; though there was a need not to drink it at least sometimes since there was no relief tube in some jets.
