Coffee Art: Now You're Painting With Caffeine

Andrew Saur and Angel Sarkela-Saur paint with coffee, using it as a basis for watercolors. It's pretty cool stuff and definitely a medium that we can get behind. That's part of a self-portrait of Andrew there, which sort of reminds me of me before my caffeine tolerance level became ridiculous.

I admire their restraint. Around here, we'd have finished off the pot before you could even get a brush ready.

Giant Coffee Mug from Panama

That's right, Cafe Duran in Panama has created a 750 gallon cup of coffee.

This size will soon be available at your local 7-Eleven or QuikTrip for the low, low price of $1.29. Throw in an extra two bits and you could walk away with a donut, too.

Or...could this be the Non-Euclidean size the prophecies (or at least the previous post) foretold? Make peace with your gods.

Starspawn Coffee mug

Because sucking down one of these while in the car is highly inadvisable. Although they do offer three sizes just like a regular Starbucks. Instead of Tall, Grande and Venti, you can have your coffee either Eldritch, Chthonic, or the mack daddy Non-Euclidean. They also have a very Short version called a Gibbous, but you have to ask for that special now--it's no longer listed on the menu.

Starbucks vending machine

Well, if you know any Starbucks conspiracy believers, you might want to give them a nice hug before you tell them about this. Because the coffee equivalent of Skynet is going to start selling their stuff out of vending machines:

Unlike any other coffee vending experiences in the market, the Starbucks vending platform utilizes proprietary heat-on-demand technology, developed by PepsiCo, which will offer customers yet another convenient way to enjoy Starbucks on-the-go.

Hell, you can sell everything else out of vending machines: anything from iPods to acne medication. So why not?

Starbucks Phase 2

Slashfood gave us the word that March 15th, Starbucks locations will be giving out free tall coffees to everybody who comes by between 10am and noon. And free happens to be my favorite kind of coffee.

Tom Waits and Iggy Pop Drink Coffee

It's from Jim Jarmusch, of course. And you can find it on the DVD of Coffee and Cigarettes.

This is a lot like our staff meetings here, honestly enough. Except normally we're doing the roadside surgery in house.

An .88 Mugnum: It Pours Coffee Through Schools

The Mugnum

A simply genius idea--it wouldn't work if you just had the grip. No, the fact that there's a sight on the other end of the mug is what makes it classic. Now, when you start selling these--offer them in black, dammit!

The WMF espresso machine

Weren't we just talking about the concept model of something like this the other day? And here it is, but quit it with the concept versions. We want it. More importantly, we need it. The WMF espresso machine sits in the Roadjet concept car from Audi and is ready to pump you up. How much longer must we continue to be teased like this?

Gizmodo has the skinnee on this design project, which won second place in a contest to see how the "coffee rituals of today might evolve and fit into future lifestyles."

The result? A coffee machine that fits into the middle console of your car. Where the hell do we sign? "Wavey-wave, Starbucks, I'm making my own this morning! Later!" Bring that noise. Thijs van Cuyk and Lavrans Laading of the Netherlands--we salute you.
