Sibu Tales : Coffee Cups

No automatic alt text available.

These China made coffee cups with green flowers are very popular items. To many of us coffee does not taste like coffee if it is not made in a cup like this.

According to John Wong, the proprietor of a good shop in Sibu, these coffee cup sets come from China and they are imported according to weight, not in numbers as they are very heavy. They get broken easily.

These cups are thick and can therefore keep the coffee in them warm for a longer time. However, there is a secret too. These coffee cups are placed in a aluminium tray which is full of hot water. When a coffee is ordered, the cup would come out of the hot water and hot coffee is poured into it. This is one reason why the coffee served in this cup keeps it temperature and its aroma.
