Coffee Coffee Coffee Starts With C

Vandor 5-1/2 by 4 by 4-1/2-Inch Sesame Street Cookie Monster 18-Ounce Ceramic Mug, Multicolored

Cookie Monster has always known what’s up with the letter ‘C’. Smart cookie, that Cookie. Not only does his favorite treat start with ‘C’, so does his lesser-known other favorite treat: coffee! (It’s pretty obvious if you notice what a spazz he is.) Being the obsessive type, there is no other mug everybody’s favorite monster would choose other than one picturing himself. The Sesame Street Cookie Monster 18-Ounce Ceramic Mug is his only drinking vessel of choice. For either milk or coffee. Got cookie? Om nom nom nom…

Also available for his pals, Oscar the Grouch and Elmo.

One More Cup Of (Microwave) Coffee

One Cup Microwave Coffee Maker

Sometimes a pot of coffee isn’t enough. Problem is, coffee drinkers don’t really know that until they have hit the last drop. At that point a jittery conundrum reveals itself: make another pot or just do without? (Or run to the corner café.) Easing the decision-making process is the One Cup Microwave Coffee Maker. Just add ground coffee, drop it in a cup of water and nuke it. Soon enough that extra cup of coffee will emerge hot and steaming—and thanks to its small size it easily washes out for the next extra cup of coffee.
