I have a pretty standard routine for preparing my cup of coffee each morning: While still drowsy and pyjama-clad, I fill the kettle halfway, set it to boil, and shovel three scoops of ground coffee into the plunger as I wait. The only pause that occurs in this daily choreography comes when I have to pick out a mug. It doesn’t really matter what ends up holding my coffee, so long as it permits me to drink - but there’s something small and delightful about pairing the comfortingly predictable taste of coffee with the visual variety of an intentionally chosen mug. For me, small mugs lend to a feeling of contentment, and patterned mugs prep for artistic endeavors; thick mugs go well with cold mornings, while enamel mugs pair well with the outdoors. And mugs that could double as soup bowls indicate there’s a lot of work to be done! (My personal favorite.)
Today I thought it’d be fun to just hunt around for a few mugs to add to your current collection, or to gift to a fellow coffee lover (or tea lover - we don’t discriminate around here.) Never underestimate the power of a well-chosen mug ;) happy sipping!

If you want something textured + uniquely patterned
For something galactic
For some encouragement
If you’re going for a new camping mug
