Back to School with Brugo Mugs: Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/18) CLOSED

Saturday, September 04, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Now that school is back in session, you may have returned to the carpool line, to college, or to a long commute. One thing that makes my time in the car more tolerable is a cup of good coffee. The thing is, I like my drink at just the right temperature: not too hot and not too cold. Usually, I have to wait until my coffee cools down to drink it - and then by the time I am halfway done, it is already too cold.

Now there is a coffee mug that let me have my cake and eat it - or, in this case, have my coffee just right and drink it right away. Brugo is an innovative travel mug that cools down my cappuccino sip by sip while keeping the rest of it warm. All it takes is a little tip, a little swish, and voila - coffee perfection.

On the outside, my Brugo looks like a very stylish travel coffee mug. On the inside, it packs a temperature control chamber - the top of the mug has a little compartment where my coffee, tea, or hot chocolate is cooled down from scalding hot to drinkable. Needless to say, Brugo is my new best friend in the morning.

Brugo comes in a variety of beautiful colors. I received the one in Seaglass, a pleasant shade of greenish / gray. The Brugo mug feels solid in my hand and holds 2 cups of coffee - exactly my morning dose of caffeine. To get more technical, it has an ergonomic grip and double-wall insulation. Oh, and I can use it the old-fashioned way if I want to - sip without the tip-swish movement because the lid has three positions: lock (closed), tip & cool, and sip (without cooling).

I do have one big problem with Brugo: everyone at my house wants one! I don't blame them - it's perfect for my husband's coffee, for the kids' hot chocolate, and let's not forget my afternoon tea. Luckily, Brugo is always running promotions, and right now, I can get 25% off a purchase of two or more mugs and free shipping over $50. Christmas gifts, anyone? Because a Brugo mug would make a great present for the whole family, for a friend or coworker, or for your child's teacher. And they ship worldwide! You can stay updated on all things Brugo on their Facebook page.
