Coffee Paintings...Believe It or Not?

Sunshine Plata is a Filipino artist who uses coffee grounds instead of paint. While looking for a cheaper alternative to oil paints, she came across a 19th Century signature rendered in coffee at a Ripley's...Believe It or Not! Museum.

She became inspired and began to paint her own coffee art. She enjoys the unique aroma and eco-friendly nature of the "paint" and is able to control the gradations of color using different proportions of grounds and water.

"The Bucket List" Increases Demand for Unusual Urns

2007's Comedy hit "The Bucket List" starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman has inspired a few people to request a rather unusual urn.

In the movie, coffee tins are used as urns for Nicholson and Freeman who pass due to terminal cancer.

Recently, Chock Full O'Nuts reported being contacted by several people who wished to place their own or a loved one's ashes in the "heavenly coffee" tins after watching the movie. People saw the impromptu urns as not only a chance to pay homage to the movie, but to save money on an often expensive urn.
