Bowls are bet­ter

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IHAVE just de­voured my copy of COUN­TRY LIFE. The ar­ti­cle on mugs caught my eye (Novem­ber 23) and I won­dered where this leaves folk who like to en­joy their cof­fee in a bowl, the Con­ti­nen­tal way—or am I alone in this flight of fancy?

My adopted fa­ther was Swiss and started us us­ing bowls, as he al­ways said the cof­fee could ‘breathe’ and it made the drink more mel­low. To my mind, us­ing a bowl for cof­fee gives a fuller flavour than us­ing a cup or mug. To those read­ers who have never tried it, I can re­ally rec­om­mend it.

Spe­cial cof­fee bowls are avail­able, although my favourite, in oat­meal and pow­der-blue colours, was pot­ted here in Ullapool by a lo­cal crafts­man—beau­ti­ful and tac­tile, it’s a cof­fee-drinker’s dream. Vicky Schilling, Ross-shire
