CLOSED: Radical Review Wednesday: Brugo Mug Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Times are tough, and my almost daily Dunkin' Donuts/Starbucks habit has pretty much died. Sadly!! I have been making my own coffee at home and bringing it into work or just having the coffee at work (and having it get cold as I take a few sips while I am working). We all know the deal... traditional travel mugs have open/close and that's it. If your coffee is too hot... too bad for your poor tongue!!

Enter the Brugo mug.



They say: The BRUGO Travel Mug is an innovative solution designed by a coffee lover to give you perfect taste with perfect control. BRUGO is the only travel mug in the world to have a thermodynamic patented temperature control chamber that makes your coffee fit to sip at the perfect 150 to 170 degrees to stimulate your taste buds for the vibrant coffee flavor we desire.

Add the unique temperature control chamber to its innovative features and you’ll understand the BUZZ about BRUGO.



I say: I love this so much! First I tried it on coffee I made at home. It worked really well. It did take a little longer to get the sip - but I THINK I wasn't doing it exactly correctly, and my mug was never totally full! I enjoyed switching from "sip" to "tip and cool" to see the temperature difference LOL It did keep my coffee warmer a lot longer than a regular cup did.

I also decided to also give it the ultimate test - Starbucks coffee! Their coffee is always, always way too hot. Ok, I loved the tip and cool setting! I DID NOT BURN MY TONGUE! That never happens!! It was awesome :)
