Don’t you hate when you pour yourself a nice, hot cup of coffee and then burn your tongue while trying to drink it? Gosh, I can’t count how many times this has happened to me. I guess I’m too impatient to wait for the coffee to cool. I just don’t have time to sit and wait on it. If I wait I will forget about it and then it gets too cool. Well, my problems are solved with the Brugo Mug!
Yes, this handy mug is good for more than just holding your favorite coffee! It has the ability to cool your hot beverage with 3 setting on its lid! All you have to do is tip the mug forward to allow the beverage to enter the cup’s special chamber (while on “Tip & Cool” setting) and then sip it! Here are some images to show you what I mean!
So, the mug cools your hot beverage to a more tolerable level for sipping! I tried mine with some hot chocolate I made with my Tassimo brewer! I was pleased with the mug’s ability to cool my hot beverage right after it was made. I would have liked it to be just a touch cooler, but I was surprised by how quickly it made my hot chocolate sip-able! I also liked how you can control how much comes out of the cup! Using the “Tip & Cool” setting on the mug’s top, the beverage has to enter the chamber before you drink it. This means that you the longer you swirl the mug, the more beverage enters it! So, if you want to drink more, just tip it longer!
Now, you may be worrying about the mug making your drink cold. Well, I can say the mug passes that test, too. 2 hours after I first poured my hot chocolate, my drink was still sort of warm! It wasn’t hot mind you, but it definitely wasn’t as cold as it would have been if I’d left it in a regular mug! I was able to change the setting on my mug to “Sip” at this point and just drink it!
I also liked that the mug has a third setting, “Locked” that doesn’t allow your liquid to come pouring out of it! This is a really nice mug that any college student, coffee/hot chocolate drinker would be proud to own! Not to mention, the mugs come in a wide array of colors – there’s something for everyone! I can’t wait to use mine this semester when I have my 8 am Teaching of Math class! Haha!
