    copper pot

    Somebody gave me this example:
    "I want a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot. If I can't have a proper cup of coffee from a proper copper coffee pot I'll have a cup of tea."
    This 'proper copper coffee pot' means 'proper coffee pot made of
    (the metal of) copper', right?
    Thank you.

    Right. It's a proper pot, a proper copper pot, a proper copper coffee pot. The pot, not the coffee, is copper.

    Read the first post quickly - it's just a 'tongue twister' so probably has no REAL relevance being a 'copper pot'. it just makes it more difficult to say!
