NEW coffee cups for The Hobbit

author philippa

We’re happy to clear up the mystery as to what the cast and crew of the new Hobbit films – currently in production here in New Zealand – are drinking their Caffe L’affare coffee from… these delightful and very environmentally-friendly cups that we designed especially for the production.

Featuring 4 illustrations from the very talented Donna Cross, each cup has a ‘tag’ that can be customised with the drinkers name and coffee preferences. Perfect for the crew member who is sent on the coffee run armed with a long list of names and must remember that Gandalf takes two sugars in his soy mochaccino*.

* We’re not sure that that’s really how Gandalf has his coffee. We like to imagine him as more of a ‘flat white with one sugar’ kind of a wizard.
