You say your name clearly and slowly, yet still the Starbucks barista spells your name wrong. If you’re lucky, there’s a letter or two that’s actually in your name. What is wrong with those people? Watch this hilarious video and you’ll finally understand.

espresso-shot

Why would you drink your espresso out of a small cup if you have the option of sipping it from a waffle cone rimmed with chocolate? It’s not even a choice. This delicious combination comes from Alfred Coffee & Kitchen in Los Angeles and costs around $8 or $9. It may not be the kind of thing you want to toss back every single morning, but the waffle cone espresso would be a nice treat.

bac

We have Canada to thank for this wonder of coffee goodness. Toronto-based Bewdly makes the beans by coating them in a maple bacon concoction and letting them soak up the flavor. You can purchase it by the pound as whole beans or pre-ground. This sounds like a brilliant combination, and it makes me more grateful than ever for our neighbors to the North.

Barista Michael Breach works the night shift, so during his ample down time he taught himself how to make some incredible latte works of art. There are a lot of wonderfully nerdy designs like the TARDIS and Jabba the Hutt, but he also takes requests and does beautiful portraits of his patrons.

Coffee cup sleeves keep our hands from getting scorched, but what if they were actually just costumes for the cups? Backbone Branding designed a series of sleeves with that in mind and turned the functional wraps into masks. The cup underneath is printed with various expressions, and you can change it up by turning the cup. Endless entertainment!

Backbone made these cups for Gawatt coffee shop in Armenia.

pumpkin spice

The Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte may be the most popular flavored beverage on the planet. It even has its own Twitter account. The drink heralds the coming of fall (which seems to come earlier every year in terms of pumpkin spice creep), and this year, fall is coming to Starbucks beginning next Monday, August 25th. Only seven days away. I’m counting the hours.

Batman-75th-Anniversary-DC-Comics-Justice-League-Morphing-Mug

Batman turned 75 this year, and in my mind there’s no better way to celebrate the Caped Crusader’s birthday than by putting on a cape and beating up bad guys!

The 11-ounce mug is heat-activated and a hidden “75 Years of Batman” image is revealed once you pour in a steamin’ cup of joe. It’s available for pre-order now with shipment slated for September.
