Few things are more invigorating than a mug of freshly ground and brewed coffee in the morning. There was a time when everyone purchased their coffee already ground. Since it was not freshly ground and immediately consumed, some of the aroma and flavor of the coffee were lost due to exposure. Today, however, a coffee grinder on your kitchen counter is a fairly common sight. Coffee drinkers are strange creatures. They have a specific blend of coffee they rave about. And, of course, they have their own favorite coffee mug as well as the proper drink holder to store it in. One that is an extension of them and that reflects their personality, lifestyle, and habits.
What kind of coffee cup is proper for you? If you drink just one cup of coffee a day, then it’s a fairly easy choice. Any cup in the kitchen cabinet will do. However, if you drink java, and most Americans do, then you will need a pretty special coffee mug.
Travel coffee mugs are gaining popularity among coffee drinkers for their insulation, which keeps coffee warm a bit longer than standard cups, a boon on cold winter mornings. Plus, they are created to be compatible with portable coffee maker machines, so no messes. Parents with infants are particularly thankful for the travel coffee mug. It comes with its own matching lid that reduces the risk of a child getting scalded by the hot brew, if it grabs the mug.
If you like enjoying your morning in a relaxed manner over coffee, the charming ceramic or glass mug is perfect, especially when paired with a cup holder for cofee mugs. A ceramic mug keeps coffee warm longer. If you are going to choose a coffee cup made out of thin material, then do be careful when picking it up. The material heats up fast and increases the risk of burns.
When choosing a coffee mug that you will be using on a daily basis, take into consideration the color, material, and shape. A mug should be easy and comfortable to hold. And like every other thing that is in your life long-term, you should really like your mug and be comfortable with it.
