Rare treat and great challenge – Dusit Thani coffee

This morning I met with someone at the Dusit Thani Hotel cafe which is just a stone’s throw away from my office (actually, technically, in the same building as they are connected). I ordered a nice cup of “Americano” coffee which is a “caffè lungo” or a “black coffee” for everyone else in the world. It comes in this wonderful, great cup…

Now the challenge began….this cup is conceptualized for right-handed people! I tried to turn it left and right and hold it in different positions, but it is impossible for a left-handed person to get “a grip” on it. Plus, you cannot hold the cup with both hands, because the coffee is actually hot. So finally, delicately, I picked it up with my right hand and worried throughout the process that I might spill the coffee on my dress. The coffee is great (and expensive) and the conversation was probably too, but I was too focused on figuring out how to drink the coffee, that I must have missed at least 50%.
