sharing the things that make me smile....

"Mocha Kenya" Original Gocco Print by artist Jan Allsopp

I could stare at this for hours. I love how it takes me back to all the little coffee shop adventures I've had with my closest people. Be it a shack in the Cook Islands, a cosy cabin in the snow fields of New Zealand, or a chic coffee house in Melbourne's CBD, coffee is central to so many of my fondest memories. This print is definatly pro caffine, decaf is a chemical mess!
Jan's unique art can be found here on Etsy.


  1. Ahh, the strong aroma of like minds! I LOVE coffee and it MUST be in a cup - I'm not a mug girl (they taste funny, better glazes used on cups). Thanks so much for showing of my print! Your blog looks GREAT! and I will definitely be back to check it out regularly. Congratulations!

  2. You need to visit New Zealand, they serve BOWLS of coffee. That's an experience not to be missed for any coffee lover! I'm going to have to find a photo of a coffee bowl...

  3. Yum! Actually you can get bowls of coffee in Leichhardt, Sydney at le Pain Quotidian a Belgium coffee shop. I love them when I visit!

  4. Awesome. Next time we're up that way we'll have to find it, I tried making a latte bowl at home and it just wasn't the same. :)
