Most of us have probably heard of the actor and musician Robert Pattinson. He is known for playing the vampire in the Twilight film series and is endorsed by Gucci as a face of their women’s wear campaign. He has been in media campaigns for Burberry, Louis Vuitton, and others.
But did you know that he is also a very talented coffee lover? After learning his coffee cup collection costs $5,000, we think it’s worth it! Here’s why…
A Coffee Muse
According to CoffeeGeek.com, a coffee muse is someone “[…] who is deeply passionate about coffee and its culture. Their enthusiasm is infectious, and it’s always inspiring to spend time with them as they pour, talk about, and teach you everything there is to know about coffee.”
If you’re looking to buy a coffee mug that will act as a collector’s item or to fulfill some kind of craving, this handsome mug will do it. It features an image of a coffee bean, surrounded by leaves that beautifully frame the coffee bean. The base is ceramic and measures 10.5 inches tall by 2.75 inches in diameter. It comes with a matching cream and sugar set that is ideal for an afternoon pick-me-up or to complement your breakfast.
A Lifelong Love
In a now-deleted tweet, Pattinson revealed that he has been a coffee lover his entire life. He wrote: “I’ve been drinking coffee for as long as I can remember. It’s weird because my mom always tried to get rid of it in my childhood.”
This was followed by a number of coffee-related quotes, including, “I was 16 when I first went to Italy to visit my Italian grandparents and fell in love with the country and the culture. It was then that I decided I wanted to live there. I saw so much beauty in that country. I just had to have it.”
There is also this quote: “I love coffee so much that I want to become a barista when I grow up. I want to be able to share my passion with others.”
He also added that he would “…work [his] way through [a] carafe of espresso with [a] croissant.”
A Bit Of A Luxury Addition
Coffee is a luxury item. It is not a ‘common’ thing to consume, unless you’re a coffee lover living in a developing country. The average person spends about $2.50 per day on their morning cup. So, if you’re looking to add a little luxury to your coffee intake, you could opt for a gold-rimmed mug. Or, if you want to treat yourself, you could get one of these limited-edition mugs that are signed by the coffee-loving superstar himself.
An Iconic Coffee MUG
On January 30, 2020, Amazon sold a special signed Robert Pattinson coffee mug for $5,037.50. This was a limited edition of 2,500 units. It was listed as ‘back-ordered’ and ‘no longer available’. But if you want to own a coffee mug that will become an iconic image in your collection, you can get it signed by the coffee lover himself.
Is this expensive coffee mug worth it? Yes, absolutely. If you’re a coffee lover and have been wanting to own a coffee mug that is an iconic image or just because you love the celebrity endorsements, this is a beautiful piece to add to your collection. And, if you meet or hear of anyone who is a genuine coffee lover and wants to learn more about the great taste of freshly ground coffee, be sure to share your coffee-related passion with them.
