A World of Coffee

Himself loves coffee and we have collected several coffee related items in our travels.  We always try to buy locally produced coffee and I have a future project lined up for the beautiful bags they came in. 
This satchel was made with a repurposed coffee bag in Guatemala. 
We have a little corner where it is displayed.  That shelf is an Arts and Crafts piece we inherited from Himself’s uncle. 
This set of photos are from a shot I took in Ethiopia as our friend honored us with a traditional coffee ceremony.  I used different Photo Shop give it the various looks.  The top center photo is the closest to what it really looks like.
And here are coffee sets from Ethiopia.  The dark one is the one Belaynish used when she did the coffee ceremony.
Himself brought this set back from Germany early in our marriage.
This coffee set is from Bosnia. 
When we went on a Panama Canal cruise, we visited quite a few coffee producing countries.  And brought home a LOT of local coffee!  However, I didn’t find very coffee related products.  The little figurine is “Juan Valdez” and his ever patient burro.  We picked it up in Columbia.  The mug set up is from Costa Rica and is a way of brewing a single cup of coffee. 
I'm looking forward to adding other coffee sets to our collection over the years. 


  1. Oh how fun. I love that you have collected coffee items from all over the world. How fascinating. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  2. My daughter LOVES coffee. She collects Starbucks mugs from all over the world (at least wherever she travels to) Your display is perfect for a growing collection.
