Coffee Collective Hive Mind Consultation: Which Mugs
The missus wants new posh mugs for Xmas (yes I know …)
Opening up for a rippa; I’m down to two options and would like the collective coffee hive to provide their opinion
Bodum Copenhagen Glass
or Guzzini Art and Cafe in a mix of Blues and Reds (colour match the crockery)
We’ve been running very cheap copies of the Guzzini for the last few years, but handles seperated from 3 of the 6 within 4 days of each other all with hot drinks in them, so chickening out of the italian roulette?!? now and using all our old rat/builders mugs at the moment, however I’m leaning towards Bodum ones atm because of my Scandinavian bloodPosted 6 years agochippsSubscriber
Seriously heavy (500g each!) – and once warmed up, they keep your coffee hot for ages. Great for a Saturday cafetiere when you just want to keep topping up your mug. A little overkill for a ristretto, but great for everything else.
I believe they’re available from the Singletrack shop 🙂Posted 6 years agorightplacerighttimeMember
We bought some of these – Cath Kidston.
They are china, so nice to drink out of.Posted 6 years ago
Don’t cost too much – £4
Readily available – Waitrose/John Lewis/Online
Tough – only had 1 of 6 break so far which was a builder knocking it 3 feet onto stone – then easily replaced.
Lots of designs – so you can do the full chintz look or go a bit plainer, or mix and match.
Just the right size – bigger than the “normal” mug size, but not so offensive to my parents as the pint mugs I used to serve their tea in when they visited.
Cougar you’d be surpised we’ve played with them in a shop (and I mentioned we’ve had very cheap copies/fakes) that hole is *just* the right size for a finger and is quite a positive hold, though my rather frail gran does moan about it. Anyhows, this is all rendered moot now thanks to LeeW and ericemel
iDaveI know it is all very 1st world darling, but needs must.
Well then, despite my previous moaning, I hadn’t considered the Crueset kit. We already have quite a bit of their stuff (french in-law) so gone and ordered 6 x mugs.
Pink (to match the toaster and kettle) and Blue (to match existing Crueset stuff)
