Coffee with Michael

Michael_simon_mugSunday morning coffee.

This Michael Simon cup is my favorite coffee cup.  Michael isn't making pots anymore due to health problems but in my opinion he's made some of the very best pots in America.

This cup is slighltly ovaled and the handle is terribly thin at the curve.  Michael's pots have great volume, visually and physically.  I love the fragility of the handle.  This cup has become stained on the inside from years of use in our home.  I'll probably never be able to get another cup like this but that isn't keeping me from using it on a regular basis.  I take my time when I use this pot, I feel very connected to it and to the maker.  It's a cup that is quiet, but speaks to me time and time again.
