This is Unacceptable.

Ok people, we need to stand up and fight. The bakers are now trying to step in on our territory. This aggression will not stand, specifically because it is going to soften and collapse.

This so called "Coffee Cup" was designed by Enrique Luis Sardi for Italian coffee company Lavazza. It is a cookie, not a cup. The cookie is lined with a sugar coating to hold liquid and keep the cup from dissolving. Bummer for them, real cups don't have that problem...

Now I'm sure some of you are saying, "But Matt, you've discussed cookie based pieces before?" Well that was an accessory. You don't see us cermicists trying to make clay based bread, do you?

Ok Bakers, keep to what your good at, let the professionals handle the dinnerware.

BUT- you can have you cup and eat it too!
Sorry- it had to be said.
I agee leave the cups to the professionals- But we have not gone out of business with the "bread" bowl.

Actually, this does sound yummy, has anyone tasted one?
I think the people that don't like sweet coffee won't like these, and the people that like to linger over a cup for hours will not like them when the coffee saturates the cup. This product has a very limited audience, I'm not worried.

Does one need to sign a release form before drinking a cuppa from one of those??? ;-)

It's an attack on all fronts - what's next? Paper-mâché toilets?

At least you can eat the cookie.
