Step 1: What you will need

This is what you will need to perform this trick.

1.A large cup

2.Smaller cup

3.Some tissue paper ( or a sponge)

4. A bag of coins (Preferably big ones)

5. A ball of newspaper

There will be a small hole under the large cup, small enough so that your finger can fit through


How to arrange them:

Put the tissue paper in the large cup, covering the hole.Next, put the smaller cup in the large cup tightly and make sure you cover the sides.Then,take the newspaper and stuff it in the small cup. The purpose of having newpaper is to make the cup lighter, so you don't need a lot of coins for this. Next pour in the coins in, it should stay above the newspaper. Make sure its on a suitable level ,slightly below the surface of the large cup.Now, you can pour in coffee, make sure its thick enough that you cannot se the coin inside.

have you ever heard of the word 'stooge'
the coffee would not dribble down your arm because if you have a sponge, it will soak it up. I rate this 5/5 stars!

Thank you for figuring these tricks out.
It seems like the coffee would first soak the newspaper allowing it to get mushed down by the coins, and would then dribble out of bottom of the cup and down your arm.

If I remember correctly, didn't David Blaine take the guy's cup of coffee and do this?
