Hey, this just hit me. It would be a great bathroom cup for the guest bathroom. Put a toothbrush where the spoon is - and they have a cup and a new toothbrush waiting on them.

But for $3.95, you could take the spoon out and put a small single rose bud in the spoon's spot and fill the larger part up with candy of some sort.

The teardrop vase is the same way. For $3.95, I could figure out some alternate uses for it...maybe bath oil in the bathroom, spices in the kitchen.

If it's beautiful and cheap - I can find a use for it somewhere (even if it wasn't the one the designer intended).

And then there's the matter of the wet , possibly sticky, spoon poking your face. I guess that'll wake you up if the coffee doesn't.

Gus beat me to it, which is just as well a he says it better.

I would add that some flavored coffee drinks, especially any hint of chocolate, often need stirring at about two-thirds consumed.

Joe,

The cup is very creative, but I see a practical issue. When you have completed stirring your coffee there is often residual liquid on the spoon. When parked in the holder the liquid will run down the length of the spoon to the bottom of the holder. Your spoon will then have coffee along the handle and your spoon holder will be dirty in a remote, hard to reach spot that will be difficult to clean once the coffee dries and hardens.
For your next cup, you will need to grasp the spoon by the 'action end' which may be wet, sticky or unsanitary if you chose to slurp the residual coffee (from cup #1) off of the spoon before parking it in the handle.
