Why This Mug?

A few costumers have asked and commented on Sweet Pea’s coffee mugs.

I bought them a long time ago in a retail store in Brazil. To me it was the perfect fit for my coffee—the handle, the size, the material, and the look. Also, it was funny because at home we never had a set for breakfast. Rather we had different mugs that we had bought randomly. Guests would often choose this one.

When we decided to open the bakery, I started looking for where I could buy that mug. It took me a while, but I finally found it at Cerâmica Serra da Capivara. Once I found it, I enjoyed the mugs even more.

Serra da Capivara is a Brazilian national park, located in the northeast section of the country. The pre-historic paintings on the walls and scientific studies showed that it was a densely populated area in the pre-Columbian era, from 22,000 to 25,000 B.C. It became the most important archeological area of the Americas. The drawings on the walls are among the oldest art on the South American Continent, showing religious beliefs and the daily habits of the people. Please visit http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/606 if you would like to know more about this area.

Using what the environment offers, the local community organized themselves to make money and preserve their space by starting to make hand made ceramics – mugs and other crafts – inspired by the original drawings from the caves and archeological sites. The mud is selected from specific areas of the semiarid region, keeping the charm of the ceramics but produced with high quality processes. More than 40 families gain their means from the sale of the artwork, giving a social value to the mugs. Visit their web page to know more at http://www.ceramicacapivara.com/

So there you go—the perfect mug, a bit of history, and working with the community. Now come try a delicious coffee in a beautiful mug!
