cappucino



(cup by Gary Rith, Mrs Potsblog's hands and midsection by her parents and God)
So a magazine early in the winter talks about Bialetti's Mukka Express, the stovetop cappucino maker. Load it with water, grounds, milk and warm it up: ppppfffft! Double cappucino!!!! No mess, no fuss! It didn't arrive in time for her birthday, so it was an early Easter gift, and look at my own early Easter gift: that shiny new espresso maker on the left!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, I made a special edition of one cappucino cup, and you can see the monster foam there, just grand.

my mouth is watering...

very nice cup indeed. so that's what your cup looks like without a dog, a baby, a shark...
in other words...naked!

Maggie said...

ha haha denis said your cup was naked. its true too!

I do like the shape of it. The way the lip of the mug curves in and then back out. Its provocative.

I'll take a cap, full fat milk, lots of foam, and can you swirl the foam so it's like a beautiful peacock?

gr said...

well, Mona, you see, that's the thing: it gives you the whole frothy mug all together somehow--a miracle! So you don't have a steam nozzle to draw with.
Denis, it is true, sometimes I DON'T put the animals on there.
