Building Shaped Like a Coffee Pot

Sad today... the coffee pot and cup have once again been abandoned. I did see one coffee cup offering outside. It is a bit tough to turn into and can easily be missed as it is around a bend.

The handle on the coffee pot is missing, the sign on the building is gone, and the place looks deserted.

Built in 1959, the pot has served multiple non-caffeinated businesses. Tourists now leave coffee cups outside the building as offerings.

We pulled into the driveway of the Big Coffee Pot and were fortunate enough to meet the owner and see what he has accomplished with his remodel. He used corrugated metal and reclaimed wood on the outside. It looks beautiful. Also he has his art made of wood, metal, and stone displayed on the outside. Mark is very nice and has really added charm to the coffee pot house.
