Have you ever notice that coffee, tea and hot cocoa taste just a little bit better in a great mug? I for one, am a fanatic about the mug I drink out of. My morning coffee is my favorite time of day and I want the experience to be perfect in every way. If I am not pleased with the mug I have chosen, it takes a bit of joy away from the moment.I am guessing if I feel this way, several of you do as well. For this reason we are starting a new series of posts at the Cross Country Cafe blog- Show us Your Mug! Each week I will pick a mug picture submitted by a reader, me or simply a cute mug I come across online or in a store.
This weeks mug is a travel mug that I look at continuously online but, cant quite bring myself to buy it. I love a really high quality travel mug but, lets face it… the darn things are expensive. I waiting for a special occasion to treat myself. I will then need to keep it under lock and key so that no one else in the house uses it and for heavens sake loses it!
Check it out:
It is so simple and sort of utilitarian, made by Stanley, they make power tools for pete’s sake, this thing is bound to be tough! I like that there is no handle, I prefer to just wrap my hand around it. It holds 24 OUNCES!! That is huge! It is extremely tall but, thankfully my Keurig has a removable drip tray so it will fit under the brew basket just fine! I will have to use an extra bold or a dark roast Kcup on the highest water setting to fill it. Even then, I think I should be able to fit 2 brewed K-Cups. Man, will I be wired by the time I get to work in the morning : )
Is anyone else out there obsessed with nice travel mugs? Have you seen a really great one? Please share!!
