Well this is a simple and elegant illusion.
SOOooOOOO worth the $10.
And Gregory Wilson is always fun to watch and perform.

I don't go to Starbucks much. I'm wondering if anyone found
similar little bags that they like to perform with that are a neat as
the Starbuck's bags.

For Magic walk-around I'd like to carry a bunch of these bags
and a ton of Stirrers. But I would like to find a similar bag so
the performance is as neat as Gregory's.
For those who bought this trick: you know what i mean?
For those who did not buy this trick: WHAT in the world are you waiting for?
This trick now opens a ton of other possibilities.

Brilliant!

Thanks in advance.
Steph Beach

Bags? Stirrers?? Are we talking about the same Coffee Break? The one I bought uses the hot cup sleeves. You're right, though...it plays HUGE!

Hmmm Hot cup sleeves.
That's cool.
I'd like to pick up the 'bags/sleeves' at a store.
It's cool to 'do the magic' at Starbucks except I don't go to Starbucks.
I'm just trying to find a substitute bag that can be purchased somewhere like a grocery store.

Thanks for the cool idea

Coffee Break is performed with a cookie bag and a coffee stir stick. Sleeveless in Seattle is done with Coffee cup sleeves. 2 totally different effects!!!

Well the only thing I can think of is going to some other "No Name" coffee shop that sells cookies/pastries and seeing if they have the bags, then buys something and ask for a few extra, that is what I did at Starbucks. When asked why I wanted them I just told them I am a magician and needed some. I came back a few minutes and showed them Coffee Break! Now if I need any, I just go there and they are more than willing to give me a handful time to time. Or you could ask them (not Starbucks) where they get theirs from. Also do a search for Paper Cookie Bags on Amazon, many hits from that, here is just one link to get you started:

Thanks. I'll hunt a few of these bags down and give them a try.
Then post the results.
Super and Thank You! :D

I bought both effects. They're both excellent tricks. The one with the sleeves is a little more versatile, though. They both came with the title, "Coffee Break".

Panera Bread has a similar bag and stirrer that work the same. I'm not a coffee drinker, but am a food eater, so I find myself there way too often.
