My Afternoon Coffee, Please - where's my Butler?



What I want
Is a proper cup of coffee
Brewed in a proper
Copper coffee pot
I may be off my dot
But I want a cup of coffee
From a proper coffee pot
Tin coffee pots
Or iron coffee pots
Are no use to me
If I can't have
A cup of coffe
From a proper coffee pot
I'll have a cup of tea.

If I ever go back to collecting anything, it will be teapots. That one is gorgeous! Love the bit of coffee pot sculpture, too.

...and tea has to be made in a china teapot and china teacups. That is a grand coffee pot. I've never had coffee from a copper coffee pot.

Hej Teresa and Joan!
The teapot is from the Flora Danica porcelain as far as I can see. It's from an exhibiton about the history of tea. If you like, you can search "Time for Tea" here on Thyra, I've got a post about this with more pictures from the exhibition.
Isn't the Russian Samovar for tea in copper? Then we could have a proper cup of tea from a proper tea copper pot!

I have a coffee corner in my kitchen and a tea corner, but no copper pot!

Thyra said...

Oh dear, but if you had such a big old copper pot, then there was no place for your cup and saucer! And no place for your lovely cake, which I have just seen in your lovely post tonight and your wonderful autumn photos of the nature around you.

That is a charming poem! I have a copper tea kettle from Finland but it's just for boiling the water, though. What a beautiful tea set. Where on earth is that huge coffee pot?

The blue coffee pot is placed outside a coffee firm "Peter Larsens Kaffe" near the town Viborg in Mid Jutland. I've just found out that it's the largest cofee pot in the world - and it is in Guiness Recordbook. I learn so much here on the blogs! Thank you Cheryl!
