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.

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
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

This ones my favorite yet!
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.
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.
This was honestly a much better trick than I initially expected. Pretty clean, Handling is pretty
simple, extremely visual, clever concept, it's great!
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.
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!!
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!
