This week’s entry for stuff that weighs more than me was inspired by the picture above which was submitted by the most amazing and awesome Bev Whittington. According to Bev, the giant pot above can be found in West Australia in Swan Valley. However, after extensive digging, I wasn’t able to find out much about it. Please feel free to chime in with more info if you like Bev. Or if anybody else knows about this thing I’d love to hear about it.
In fact if you have any other pictures of giant things that weigh more than me, I’d love to see them! Please post them to my timeline or email them to email@example.com. The more detail, the better. I’d love to feature YOU in my blog!
While I’m quite confident that Bev’s giant espresso pot weighs more than me, I am unable to say exactly how much more than me. So I decided to look for other giant coffee pots and coffee cups. And my goodness, folks do love their coffee. I found a huge number of giant java sources all around the world. I was literally spoiled for choice.
For this week I settled on the world’s largest cup of coffee. This was created by De’Longhi of Italy and was unveiled in London on November 5, 2012. This huge coffee cup was actually filled with gallon upon gallon of coffee (black). In fact, this super, molto, giantico, venti caffee was the equivalent of over 216,000 shots of espresso.
All that wake up juice was probably required for the four designers who labored for 504 hours to put it together. Here’s the stats:
Height: 9 ft. 6 in. (When somebody asked for a “tall” they weren’t kidding…)
Width: 8 ft. 8 in.
Volume: 3487.1 gallons (US)
Weight: Over 12 tons
Conclusion: Both the World’s Largest Cup of Coffee and the giant espresso pot in West Valley Australia weigh more than me. And can somebody get me some decaf?

Might the big espresso maker (also called a cafetiere) be one of Australia’s Big Things? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia%27s_big_things – though it is not listed here. It’s really cool!
I don’t know. I was aware of Australia’s big things but I didn’t see it listed there. And I searched and searched for info online but alas found nothing.
