I must be honest here, this was my favorite portable caffeine delivery device and I missed it. Sure it had character…
It was also an eye sore and was never carried anywhere. Something had to be done before it could leave the house! It was time to strip (Caution you are about to see a naked cup) it down to bare metal and see where things could go from there.
After stripping it looked great but the lid did not match. A color had to be chosen! All of the powders that were on hand were looked at and only one stood out, Norse Onyx Sparkle.
All in all a piece of work that looks good as it is, nothing has been decided as far as an etch or engraving, and may never be. Yes, sometimes less is more.
