Brugo Coffee Mug Review and Giveaway

As you've probably already gathered, I love coffee, tea, and just about anything else that gives me a caffeine boost.  Recently I was asked to try out a really awesome new coffee mug.  It's called a Brugo Mug, and it has features that I've never seen before on any other travel mug.  "Features?" you are probably thinking to yourself, "I didn't realize coffee mugs had features."  Well, this one does, and they are quite convenient and easy to use.


Here are some cool facts about the Brugo Coffee Mug:
  • The Patented Temperature Control Chamber makes it easy to enjoy your coffee immediately after it is brewed with the tip & sip function, while the remaining beverage stays hot and fresh.
  • Lock mechanism, keeping your hot beverage sealed and spill proof.
  • 16-ounce capacity for those (like me) who need A LOT of coffee to get going in the morning.
  • Double-wall insulation.
  • No-slip bottom, and a stylish stainless steel finish.
  • Fits most cup holders, and comes in some really snazzy colors.
  • Makes an affordable, practical gift for just about anyone! (Starting at just $14.95)

My personal opinion:

I was skeptical at first.  We are taught not to tip a hot beverage because it will spill out.  So it was hard for me to make myself actually tip the mug to fill the "Temperature Control Chamber."  Then I thought, how could it possibly instantly adjust the liquid to perfect sipping temperature.  Well, I was impressed that when I tipped the mug I didn't cover myself, my car upholstery, or anything at all with burning hot coffee. (as I said, I was a bit nervous)  Then I took a hesitant sip.  I half-expected to burn my upper lip with scalding hot coffee, but I was even more impressed that the sip I enjoyed was at exactly the right temperature.  No burning, no dripping, no waiting for the coffee to be cool enough to drink.  How cool is this?

When I was at my destination I unloaded all the kids, turned the 3-position drink mode selector dial to "lock," and walked with it in one hand rested atop my double stroller (stupid $330 stroller doesn't come with a cup holder!), and guided the stroller using the other hand.  Not one drop of coffee spilled as I steered and went over sidewalk cracks.  Lastly, while sitting on a park bench I turned the dial one more time to "sip" and I was able to bypass the "Temperature Control Chamber" and the mug functions like a traditional coffee mug.  The remaining coffee was cooled enough to be enjoyed, but not too much, as the double-wall insulation keeps the heat in for a long time.



Overall, I was super impressed with my new Brugo coffee mug, and I'm really excited to be offering one of these to a reader in his/her choice of color!
