Jupiter House Java In Black And White

I enjoy making people jealous. Sorry. I’m wicked like that. If you saw “my” coffee house, you would turn green with envy. So, I thought I would show you my morning “routine.” Being a coffee addict, I have to go to Jupiter House, on the square here in Denton, to get my “fix.”

I realize that this cup of mocha is almost too pretty to drink (but it is as delicious as it looks!). You should see the process that was used, with chocolate syrup, to create that lovely flower.

Oops! I got distracted for a moment (I’m old, but I’m not dead). Below is the process he used.

After drizzling the chocolate, a toothpick is used to spread it to make an image. Usually, while my coffee is being made, I wander around the coffee house saying, “Howdy, How y’all doin’ this mornin’.” [YES … I’m afraid I really talk like that. If you ever hear me put the “g” at the end of an “ing,” you’ll know I’m feeling threatened by an authoritative figure.]

And, while I wait for my perfect cup of mocha, I try to get all “artsy fartsy” and snap pictures of syrup bottles standing at attention.

Did I make you jealous? If so, head to Jupiter House in Denton, Texas. I’ll meet you there and buy you a “cuppa.”

      Oh, my, Anne. Did I get your heart rate up this morning? I was afraid he might have that effect (but remember, I’m trying to make you jealous! :lol:). I think you have a bit of a travel to get here, but come on!

    Wow! That’s amazing… Such a beautiful work. I never thought of painting a cup of coffee!

      😆 It almost seems wasted art, because I down it pretty quickly. You should see all the images they put on the surface of it. Not just flowers… the geometric images are awesome

      I’ve never tried Russian White coffee. I may have to try it. Yes, the “artist” is rather nice, eh? He will be delighted that people think so.

      Ummm…. how much? Well, lemme see. It’s designer coffee. I must admit that you could probably buy a pound of coffee for the price of two cups. But, you wouldn’t get the flower!

  18. October 12, 2009 at 10:15 am

    THANK YOU for speakin’ without a “g”. That form of talk is one of the most comfortin’ sounds to me! 😉

    • October 12, 2009 at 10:18 am

      Sure, darlin’, but you’re probably one of the few folks readin’ my blog who understand that kinda talk. 😆

  19. October 12, 2009 at 10:27 am

    I’m jealous of your coffee flower. I got lazy this morning and didn’t even make my own coffee, just opened a can of diet Coke. Still doing the clean up from Thanksgiving dinner yesterday.

      Shoot, Laura! It never occurred to me that you were Canadian, eh? Happy Thanksgiving … a bit late. Do y’all eat turkey up there? Just to show how ignorant I am…

  20. October 12, 2009 at 11:55 am

    This post was unique..being a coffee lover, I think I can relate. I love that picture up top..honestly, I think I’ve been in the wooleys too long because I ‘ve never seen a cup made quite like that!

      I made you jealous! I get coffee like that every stinkin’ day. But, I’d buy you a cup if you want to swim an ocean to get here 😆

  21. October 13, 2009 at 12:17 am

    Yummy, yummy (and those bedroom eyes? *yikes!) Okay, I’m hoppin’ on my broom. See ya in the morning!
