One night as Jon was slipping into a dark slumber, he started muttering about what kind of iced coffee he was going to get in the morning. What can I say, the man is deep. But he loves his Guatemalan beans! And then when he discovered the whole clarified-butter-in-the-coffee thing, well…He basically turned our kitchen into a chem lab and started calling a portion of the countertop his “workstation.” Like a pyscho. I, on the other hand, opt for my daily homemade matcha latte where I use a Japanese bamboo whisk, ceremonial tea bowl and an electric frother. Like a normal person. Regardless of preference, the perfect hot beverage needs the perfect vehicle. The mugs in the collaboration between John Derian and Astier de Villatte is the ultimate gift for the ritualistic morning sipper. Plus, they’re good looking enough to support just your regular cup ‘o joe.
