"I love this trick." -Gregory Wilson

You show two cups exactly the same size with exactly the same amount of coffee in them. With one cup in each hand, you hold them at chest level, showing that if you extend your arms in opposite directions it appears that one cup is larger than the other. You end by making the impossible happen in that one of the cups is now clearly larger than the other — with illusion becoming reality!

Another 6 star effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 17th, 2019
All the coffee house set of effects I've seen are great. It is amazing to me that Wilson and Gripenwaldt can keep on coming up with such inventive ways to make a stage out of Starbucks. This effect is easy to do, requires no sleights and just a little courage. After you perform it a couple times it doesn't require the courage. Once again the tutorial is perfect. They show you what you have to do and how to do it. Everything is explained clearly and concisely. Another 6 star effect.

4.5 Stars for a Venti size lesson on Misdirection Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2019
Of all the tricks so far from the Coffee Conjuring 2 series, I think that this is the most visual so far. It the most "Huh what?" effect of the ones that have been released.

That said, I do have to say that, for me personally, this is a bolder trick to perform than the others. Experienced magicians will perform this without a second thought. Someone like me though... I'll be nervous. Is it worth overcoming the nerves for? Absolutely. Just being transparent though... if you get nervous about getting caught because you don't have confidence in your misdirection skills, you'll want to practice this a few times.

Is the demo accurate? YES - Greg always strikes me as an honest magician. What you see is certainly what you get. And props to Greg for his never having heard of the Magic Castle! HAHA! He’s so funny!

Is the trick easy? YES - Just practice. This trick is all about the subtleties and misdirection.

Any sleight of hand? NO - Not really… you have to do “the move” but it’s not tricky in anyway. Just practice so that your brain can be focused on the presentation.

Any arts & crafts? NO - Well, actually, I would suggest a little preparation that is not mentioned by Greg… having the cups pre-marked or even having the printed order labels affixed ahead of time would take this to another level. (Especially if the Venti cup said “Tall” on it - I hope you’re reading this Greg and Grip!) Convincers like this would just make this, well, more convincing. Of course, you’ll need a cooperative no-questions-asked barista for this. ;-)

How is the teaching? As usual, Greg (and Grip) teach this trick very sufficiently. Really, between the two, there is a whole lot of insight being spilled out on the table. I loved it.

Is the trick well priced? YES, especially at the sale price. The full price of $10 might be pushing it.

Am I glad I got this trick? YES - this is a mini-class on misdirection and the finer points of making a convincing presentation.

Ok, so this is how I’m rating this… I was going to give this 4 stars because it’s a great simple trick (even though honestly, I’m hesitant just because I’m scared I’ll be caught on this… but this is a good excuse to push myself and get better at misdirection). Usually I save the fifth star for mind-blowing visual magical stuff… and guess what, even though this isn’t “mind-blowing”, it certainly does get the spectator to say “wait. what just happened.” and it is indeed visual. So an extra half star for the Brews Brothers!

By the way, I always try to be honest and straightforward in my reviews, while being respectful to the magician. If you appreciate my reviews, can you please click the "Yes" button below beside the question, "Did this review help you?" It's not like I actually benefit in any way by your clicking it... but it would be nice to see if my reviews are helpful or not. I hope they are. If you ever have suggestions or comments or questions about my reviews, please feel free to leave me a constructive comment. I'm just trying to be helpful. I love the Penguin community and hope that I can someday contribute my own product. :-) Thanks for reading and for any (hopefully positive, but either way, at least kind) feedback.

Starts clean, and surprisingly!!!!!Ends Clean 🤜🤜
Yes you can sit back and just relax with your “ extra coffee”
Greg & Dave do a great job in teaching this effect with short funny stories of the journey 😁🤣😂
If you have the bottle to do one boldish move then you could really freak someone out with this 👍👍👍
The move is Bold and not difficult, so instead of you BEGGING for more coffee 🤣 just go ahead and give yourself some more ♣️♥️♠️♦️
This may even get you a second Date, your infectious “5 Star” personality will have to get you on the first date 😁🤣👍👍👍
I hope this helps someone 👍

Really needs a Starbuck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 4th, 2019
This is a really great trick but it is very dependent on a Starbucks. There is no Starbucks near me and I can't adapt the cups in the local coffee places. So I can't use it.

Cool Illusion Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 30th, 2019
Another great effect from this coffeehouse series. Easy to do, it's about misdirection rather than sleights. It's also unique - no sugar packets or straws... the cups are the focus.

Another hit from the BREWS BROTHERS! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2019
Another hit from the impromptu geniuses of Greg and David.

This is a really stunning eye pop. Practice the technique and you will have a wonderful tool for your arsenal.

I can't wait to do this for my friends at Starbucks.

But, for God Sake, please be careful. You are using hot coffee near some very important body parts!! Drink some coffee before you show your friends this trick.

Really like this!!

It’s not cards Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 21st, 2019
Isn’t great to have impromptu magic , thats not a deck of cards you have pulled from your pocket.
The lads hare coming out with some very strong magic that you cans do for your mates or people you have just met at a coffee shop
This really is a motivated price of magic ( the best kind)
The workings are easy to do the misdirections are well taught ( not a lot to learn really)
The video is well presented and the audio is good
I do like having magic I can do with out having to be loaded with gimmicks
Well worth the small coin you have to pay!
