Brugo Mug Review & Giveaway



For those of you who have been following my blog you KNOW how much I LOVE coffee. This is especially true since February 16, 2010, the day Little J was born! There are many days where I would not make it through the day without at least one cup.

Speaking of which I will be right back, all this talk of coffee makes me want one.

Yup that is much better now.


Back to coffee, I love it, but I only love it when it is HOT! There is something wrong about loke warm coffee that just makes me run to the nearest microwave. Which means all the way downstairs to the 1st floor, forget the fact that I am on the 2nd floor. We all know what microwaved coffee can taste like, YUCKY! However, although my love for hot coffee is strong, my love for burning my mouth is low! There is also nothing worse then making a cup and having to wait 20 minutes to be able to drink it.

This is why I have now found a new love in my coffee ventures, the Brugo Mug. This mug allows a portion of your drink to cool to a more comfortable drinking temperature, while keeping the rest of your drink hot. Which means you get to drink it now without burning your mouth but also know that your drink (because it is also good for tea, hot chocolate and other hot beverages. I try not to discriminate.) will stay hot for longer.


The mug works by moving a "sip" of your hot beverage of choice from the main chamber to the Temperature Control Chamber. This allows that sip to cool to the perfect temperature instantly while the remaining drink stays hot. 

It does take a little getting used to, there were a few times I forgot to tip and could not figure out where my coffee had gone. Luckily you can easily move the dial from Tip & Cool to Sip (when the temperature is just right) and there is no longer a need to tip. Another great feature is that you can turn the dial to lock and the mug becomes spill proof. Yes I tested it by holding it upside down (over the sink) and not a drop was spilled. Great for those of us who love to drink on the go.


Good hot coffee and no more burnt mouth, what more could a coffee lover ask for? Well I will tell you a good looking cup and choices in colors.



Here are some of the cup's features:


 Patented 2 oz/25 ml Temperature Control Chamber giving you sip by sip satisfaction at the perfect temperature

 Double-wall insulation

 3-position drink mode selector - "Lock, Sip, Tip & Cool" - allowing you perfect taste and temperature control whether you need a bolt of caffeine or prefer to linger over your coffee ritual

 16oz / 450ml capacity cup size - a large cup

 Non-slip bottom keeping your coffee where you put it

 Ergonomic grip for maximum comfort

 13 stylish colors

 Stainless Steel and Chrome accents

 Fits all cup holders
