I keep a large coffee pot going about all day long and far into the night, so I'm always set up to reload. I can just picture Tom's house when he gets in a reloading mood! Five or six hundred cups full of coffee sitting on every available horizontal surface. I think that I'll get me half a dozen of those mugs printed IXMOO. The Starbucks paper cups start to leak after only two or three reloads.

...gave me a great idea! I'm going to register that three word phrase as a trademark! I'll make millions. I'll be rich! Then I can afford to buy bunches of Leica M8 bodies just to use as rear lens caps. Do black or chrome M8 bodies make better rear caps?

This is all nonsense, people!

The hot ticket is hammertone "Earl" Grey finish, engraved, with matching tea infuser.

(And, what's this "coffee" thing y'all keep bringing up? I'll bet it's mixed up with all this "digital" business...)

So does this mean that the mug is front focusing or back focusing?

Excellent idea! Mukul, you should have it registered, or someone else will start making other stuff with that logo!

Heck, they might even slap it on something weird, like a camera!

Be warned, do it now

So you need to tilt your head up 2mm to the right to sip that coffee, can DAG do something I heard he's the best before he retired from CoffeQuest though SK may be not as busy but the email is always down careful you might end up buying a CLA'd mug from SK that has been in the website for 9 months oh and YY may be a good alternative but tell him not to put too much cream it stains the mug when it gets dry.

I'm appalled, surely white would cause severe internal reflection and decrease contrast? I need black velvet lining to improve my photography.

Here's the real one, Roland. It was designed to be ambipotaceous and can hold tea as well as coffee.

For a firmware upgrade you plug it into your computer on a moonless night.

How safe and firm is the gripping system? Wouldn't this mug benefit from a little vulcanite in the handle?

Imagine the possibilities...

BTW, Mukul, congratulations on the mug!

I'm going to start a poll to see if you guys think I should buy this mug in black chrome or black paint version. Or maybe a pre-worn and brassed version that will make me look like a seasoned pro coffe-drinker? It will mainly sit on my shelf but I want to look cool when I enter the coffee room at work with it.

I hate to break it to you Frank ... but I don't think even that mug will help with achieving "coolness." Do conduct the survey with your colleagues, though, and get back to us.

My friend has a coffee mug exactly like yours. In fact Iím selling it for him on ebay, seeing as he ainít got no ebay account.
It appears to be in great condition, but please donít ask me any questions. I donít know squat about no coffee mugs.

Al Kaplan has received the mug I sent him, and he says that coffee tastes all right in it. When I asked him if he thought that a few RFF members might be willing to buy the things (for a price which I cannot mention here as this is not an ad), he said that was probable. He added that FED and Zorki mugs might also be saleable. I can do similar simple designs for them too, though that will involve hunting up the logos and then sizing them to the dimensions needed for the mugs. At the expense of time, "custom" designs are also possible.

Attached is a picture of both the mugs I have had made so far. Let the puns fly again.

One mug, one coffee, one year. This will make me a better coffe drinker. As long as it's the aspherical version.
They both look pretty good, actually.

Twice now I've taken my Leica Mug to Starbucks. They actually give you a few cents discount for supplying your own cup!

Even better , two women that I'd seen before came over and started conversations with me and we exchanged phone numbers! Thanks, Mukul.

Will there be a black paint version for those who prefer their coffee to be more cool?

That's one obvious advantage for the early mornings. Another huge benefit is the cokeh the large aperture produces. There's just something about the way it renders the out-of-taste areas.

By the way, Mukul, does the mug have a threaded hole in the bottom for a mugpod, for those shaky mornings?

Are you going for the M9 to Mukul?
