i received mine in the mail finally and compared to the gimmick on the dvd mine seemed sleightly
smaller but maybe john kennedys hands are smaller and look big on the tv i dont know , but anyway
where im canadian the only coffee shops we have is tim hortons and the size cups you can only use is
size medium and large , barely fits medium and just fits a large cup but both work perfectly.
the crushed cub version looks very magical but yes everyone will want to examine the cup so
i advise turning back and dispose of it into a place they will never want to look thru.
coffee vanish where the cup of coffee is covered with a napkin and after you do your magical hand
wave or whatever you like ( pray to jesus to send your coffee to another dimension is my preference
) you take the napkin away to show the coffee is basically completely vanished and can be examined.
the coffee transform effect " coffee to coffee beans " ( note you can also change it to
whatever you want my preference is to change the coffee into a cup thats half beans and half sugar
packs and creamers ) this is the best version on the dvd in my opinion it leaves an amazing
souvenior for the spectator and its more of a transform than a vanish.
the bag version ,
also an excelent coffee vanish you place a full cup of coffee into a bag and then you crush the bag
and the coffee together and hand it out for examination , i feel this alone is better than the
crushed cup version in the demo video cause any trick that is stunning as this people dont wanna be
restricted to examination plus handing them a crushed bag with a coffee cup inside is more
mysterious and they take the bag and open it to find an empty crushed cup inside it , its just
all in all if the demo looks great to you buy this for the coffee transform
and the bag version , those 2 versions alone are epic.

First thing is the first. I love this trick!
Of course you need to
practice. but with 10-15 minutes or less you can do it pretty smooth. You'll even fool yourself in
front of the mirror.
The DVD is not very long but John covers every detail and
different variations of how to perform it. I love the concept of turning coffee into coffee bean.
I have to say it is very well made. not only if is durable and functional but
also very user friendly(you will know what I am talking about when you get it)
magician Lu Chen performed it with orange juice in the Chinese TV show 2010. Great performance, of
course with great trick and method that John Kennedy.

This is a great trick! I think the concept is really good, the gimmick is simple to use, easy to
carry around and setup. I do think the price is a bit steep, but when you consider that the gimmick
was custom designed and mode, I can understand why its so costly. The DVD is reasonably done; not
as professional looking as some, but he does a good job of explaining the gimmick, moves and
routines. He shows you from different angles as well. The DVD does have some different routines in
it as well. Overall I'd say it's a great addition to your magic repertoire.

This is a clever effect and the secret something is very well made [It has "John Kennedy Quality"
written all over it]. DVD well done and easy to follow. The use of this trick requires set-up and
getting into the right situation to pull it off. But when this happens it will drop jaws.

So I was able to get my hands on this trick and I have to say that its a great concept. I have
performed this well over twenty times, and am pleased to say I haven't encountered any problems
whatsoever, It's easy and doesn't take to much time to master.
The DVD teaching you how
to pull it off is GREAT, and offers some great variations of the original method giving more then
one option on how to do the trick. There is just so many possibilities, which makes this one great
trick. It was a great buy and I will continue to perform it and will also continue performing this
making coffee turn into coins. Great party trick as well.
ADD TO CART!!!

I was very UNSATISFIED with the "Upgrade" to the gimmick. It made it cheaper for them to
manufacture, but lowered the quality of the gimmick. Sorry to say, but true.

One of John Kennedy's strongest effects! John has truly created a powerful close-up and although
where you perform maybe limited, it's still a fantastic trick that will leave your audience puzzled.

great trick, great reactions great teaching on the dvd. at first i thought the dvd was a little
short but then after thinking for a minute i thought why does it have to be longer, it explains
everything very well in a short period. with very little set up before hand ( like 30 seconds) you
get great reactions. there is a few different methods, my favorite , napkin over the coffee then
pull napkin away and coffee is gone is awesome in my oppinion , plus the method you see on the demo
is also very good, just add to cart worth every penny.

The set up can be a bit awkward, but if you can get around that this isn't a difficult trick, and
when done properly has gotten some me some great responses. Would definitely recommend it.

I bought this a few months back and it's been sitting in the drawer since.Its good for tv or
YouTube,but in the real world it won't fly.I like magic that can be Inspected,mojoe can't be. Even
the routine Rick lax does with the coffee beans CAN'T be examined.
