A Favorite Coffee Mug

Lately, I've been pondering the importance of a good coffee mug. One you love. One you cherish. One that makes you smile when you reach for it.

I basically have tons of coffee mugs but I tend to only use three or so, over and over, again. This week, I'm into the mug, feature above. Thanks Mom!

My mug selection comes in waves like a song you download from ITunes, play to death, stop listen to, then rediscovered the next month.

But I often wonder, why do I only use three out of the gaggle I own? Is it something about the size? A sentimental feeling for who gave it to me? The way the hot mug feels in my hands? Or could it be the design I tend to stare at while I'm mulling over my next scene in my book?

Does coffee taste better when you drink it from a mug you really like?

These are questions that may never be answered but are worth pondering.


  1. The answer is tastes better from a beloved coffee mug. I have a ton of coffee mugs, but only drink out of the same 2 or 3. I also have kept some I've had since high school!

  2. Why do you love these mugs? Is it the feel of the mug in your hands or who gave the mug to you or where you got it?

  3. I only drink out of the biggest mugs so I don't have to get up for refills so often :-).
    Seriously, I like to use my Dad's old mug because I miss him.

  4. Really good reasons to use a mug- practicality :) But the most important sentimentality. Love it!
