WithDelight Coffee Cup and Saucer

Serving bite-sized sweet treats on the side of coffee is part of many different cultures as it is a custom to serve a cup of coffee with Turkish delight in Turkey, biscotti in Italy, churros in Spain and dates in Arabia. However, on conventional saucers these treats slide towards the hot coffee cup and stick or get wet from the coffee spills. To prevent this, this coffee cup has a saucer with dedicated slots keeping the coffee treats in place. Since coffee is one of the quintessential hot beverages, improving the quality of the coffee drinking experience has importance in regard to daily life.
