What do coffee mug, custom coffee munching and Dunkin ices add up to?
What would you do if you were to combine all these ideas into a single mug?
That is exactly what artisans in Switzerland have come up with.
The coffee artisans, called Munchi, use coffee to create beautiful coffee muffs that are made of chocolate, vanilla and a mixture of other ingredients.
These mugs are then placed in a coffee bar and decorated with coffee.
The result is a piece of art that is completely unique to the café, which is the ultimate gift for friends and family, the team at Munchia told AFP.
“Our idea is to create something that is a bit more like a museum and not a coffee shop,” said team member Stefanie Siegel, who is responsible for the project.
“When you sit at the café you can’t imagine what it would be like to be at home.
It is very simple but not too complicated.”
The mugs were created in a café called the Café Espresso in Zurich, which has a coffeehouse and cafe as well as a coffee-shop, which was founded in 1887.
“We thought it would have to be a project that is not only a coffee museum, but something that would give you a taste of home and make you feel a little bit more at home, too,” Siegel told AFP, adding that the coffee mums were created with the help of a team of more than 70 people.
“It’s a project for everyone, for everyone’s own taste and for the whole family.”‘
It is an expression of friendship’The coffee mummies are part of a series of art projects that the team is trying to create.
“We have already finished some coffee mummies, we are very happy with the ones we have created so far,” Söhl said.
“But we want to make this the next step in the series.
It’s an expression the way the mummified bodies are presented,” she added.
The mummied bodies were brought to the team from their own graves.
“The coffins were made with a special mixture of cocoa powder, a chocolate bar and an edible foam from a milk carton.
It was then dried, painted and then the mummies were put in the coffee bar,” she said.’
It’s not an ordinary cup’The team has worked out the exact process of creating the mums and are now trying to get them ready for their next project.
“I can’t wait to have a mug made with my own coffee,” said Söhls mother, Martine, who has helped out with the project as a member of the team.
“I can only imagine what they will look like when they are ready for the public to enjoy,” she told AFP of the mum’s coffee mug.
