    Largest short black cup collection in the world Ipswich QLD

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I heard on the local ABC am radio an interview with the Mayor of Ipswich in QLD about his short black coffee cup collection.
    Well I just had to follow through with a little research *::)

    Below is an excerpt quote from the story plus on the link you will find a short ABC video of some amazing cups in his collection
    For the full but short story see link
    http://www.abc.net.au/tv/collectors/segments/s2439384.htm

    Not only does the Mayor of Ipswich, Paul Pisasale have the biggest collection of coffee cup sets in the nation, he has been recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for having the biggest collection of its type in the world. He has outpaced previous record holder Michael Millerick in the USA who has a mere 220 cup sets. Just looking at the collection, which is housed in display cabinets in his Ipswich City Council office gets the senses going - you can almost smell the coffee brewing.
