If there was any confusion about the effect that a shot of strong black coffee might have on your tired morning mind, the Rocket Espresso Cup clears it up with a scrumptiously symbolic shape. The dome-bottomed mug is accented with three evenly space fins as legs, giving the vessel the appearance of the lower half of a missile.

Designed by Isohedral, the cute coffee cup suggests that the hot drink inside of it will be enough to make your energy level soar and awaken your inactive brain, the way that a loud spaceship launch certainly would. Yet the Shapeways-produced demitasse sits there, sturdily in 3D-printed ceramic with tripod support. You can benefit from the fire within with your fingers wrapped comfortably around the Rocket Espresso Cup.
