Shot in the kitchen, in the morning, with a hangover, after realising that coffee is a nice brown colour and doesn't run away when you attempt to photograph it.

Light was provided by a small angle-poise desk lamp and the standard overhead kitchen halogens.

Not much in the way of editing:
Convert from RAW
Minor changes to red and brown hues
Desat to get rid of the red background of the coffeemaker and enhance the brown of the coffee.

great start, I feel like you missed the story here just a little, is it the cup, the coffee, or the spigot?
