How many times have you burnt your tongue taking that first couple sips of coffee in the morning??? I have. Plenty of times! And I'll never learn. I'm running late and I need my caffeine!! Thank goodness Brugo has built a mug for people like me! People who love their hot drink, but not so much scalding themselves to enjoy it.
It's Tip and Sip mug has a perfect temperature compartment. In one quick tip the once too hot coffee becomes the perfect temperature to consume! All the while leaving the remaining coffee hot and aromatic! Meanwhile an ordinary coffee mug will cool down eventually to taste..... but by the time your half way through, it's cold. I only like cold coffee when its blended with some caramel!
The unique design has a locking lid with three choices. Lock, sip or tip & cool. Lock to hold in the freshness, sip for when its at a tolerable heat and tip & cool when you're just starting out. Not to mention its a very good looking mug. When you hold it, you can tell its a very sturdy, durable mug.
I was lucky enough to try out this mug. I'll be honest the first time I used the mug I filled it up from a fresh pot and ran out the door. I was running late for Cody's dentist appointment. I'm pulling out of the yard and I turned the lid to "tip & cool", tipped it... and was kinda nervous. What if it doesn't work! I'll have a mouth full of really really hot coffee! I slowly took my sip...and it was nice and warm!! It floored me! Oh I was a happy camper! I even had Cody excited. So much he begged to try it with hot chocolate! That's when it dawned on me, I need to get these for the whole family! We do Winterhaven every year here at Christmas. (Its a neighborhood that goes all out with Christmas lights. The whole city turns out for it). We always get the kids a Styrofoam cup with hot cocoa. But its way too hot for them to enjoy while we walk. The only thing its good for is warming up your face til it cools down!
If I'd let my kids use it for hot cocoa that's saying a lot!
Would I Use This Company?
Absolutely! Very pleased.
