My nephew Luther, who lives in Chicago, is a really creative, ingenious, and funny guy. I love him a lot and follow his interests with great interest because they’re always so interesting. Like his handmade Christmas cards. Like his recent project to build a motorized volume control for his antique Marantz receiver [for those of you who don’t know what a receiver is, click here].
But I am not here to tell you about his retrofitted volume control, but to pass along another of his interests more in keeping with our own: coffee. Specifically coffee cup butts. Yes, you read that correctly. Luther has discovered the coffee equivalent of tea leaves.
It hardly makes sense for me to attempt to describe what a coffee cup butt is. You’ll have to find out for yourself my clicking here. You are encouraged to make a contribution, as I did on March 23 [scroll down].
Coffee cup butts. It’s a whole new way of thinking about the dregs left behind in your coffee cup. And I’ll bet you’ll never look into your used coffee cup the same way, ever again. Enjoy.
