"Simple to use and very effective. They loved it." - John Beattie
It's great for magic shows and church services but also as a casual 'surprise moment' at a coffee shop. Sit down with your friends, secretly introduce your prepared glass as your apparently-ordered drink, and let the magic begin! Just make the sure the staff don't bin your empty cup though!
Great for church services, school assemblies and kids shows.
"Coffee to Go in insane. I thought I had milked my dog puppet poking his tongue out, swallowing sponge balls...but having him drink the coffee is fabulous! After all this time I was totally unprepared for the reaction." - Alan Griffiths
Show your audience a tall clear cup of iced coffee, explaining that you're is going 'cold turkey' and trying to cut out caffeine. But the coffee is there, tempting you! Should you have a sip or stick to your guns? Suddenly, as if by magic, the coffee magically disappears...bit by bit the level drops until it's nearly all gone! Problem solved!
COFFEE TO GO
This is a modern twist on the classic vanishing milk glass, the quick-release mechanism is built into a rigid plastic transparent Starbucks cup. The audience can clearly see the level of the coffee (or any drink you put in) lower. This is a robust prop - made from thick - but crystal clear - plastic - that will last you MANY performances.
A versatile prop, this can be presented in many different ways.
Hold the glass on top of a spectator's head and have them suck through a straw they hold in their mouth, the level goes down! Draw a face on a piece of card, stick the straw in their mouth and have it drink your coffee! Ideal to use with a puppet; they can appear to drink the beverage through the straw...making it all the more believable that they're a real living thing. Use coffee, orange squash, milk or Coke! Which ever goes best with your presentation.
GOSPEL IDEA 1 - Dealing with Temptation
The Bible gives us 3 strategies for dealing with temptation - Praying, reading & fleeing. Fleeing from situations where we are tempted is sound practical advice. For example if you're trying to cut down on caffeine go out of your way to avoid coffee shops. And you find that the desire will get less and less. (Start to let the level of the coffee fall). Stop feeding the temptation and it'll get weaker and weaker - and perhaps eventually leave you alone!
GOSPEL IDEA 2 - Keep being filled with the Spirit
Being filled with the Holy Spirit, is not a once-for-all experience. Eph 5:18 is correctly translated "keep on being filled constantly and continually."No one says “One cup of coffee is enough for a lifetime!” When D.L. Moody was asked why he had to be filled with the Spirit so often he said simply, “Because I leak.” (let the coffee start to fall). We need to be refilled again and again.
- Quick release mechanism, works smoothly!
- Easy to do, and under your control at all times
- Heavy duty prop that will last many performances

"I recently purchased this product after watching the mission magic promotional video. Simple to use and very effective. If you have previously used the Lota vase you will find it is a very similar concept. I tried the product in conjuction with a puppet drinking from the cup during a children’s assembly talk. They loved it.
You could use it as part of an act or for the main point of presentation. From a personal viewpoint I tried various liquids to fill the cup and found the most successful was drinking chocolate."
