Brugo Mug Review & Giveaway!



I remember the days of waking up at 5:15am to be out-the-door- by 6:20am, driving 50 miles to work, with my Starbucks coffee tumbler tucked faithfully in the cup holder. For the first 15 minutes of the drive, I couldn't drink my coffee because it was too hot, but by the time I got to school, it had cooled down too much! I had to remember to drink it all between Brookville and West Carrollton! I wish I had this Brugo Mug for those days!
The Brugo Mug is incredibly innovative as well as fun. The first thing that caught my eye is the color! The Brugo Mug comes in quite the array of colors, and I was sent this Cobalt one to review. It looks very cool especially with the stainless steel finish, but it really does keep your coffee hot! It allows you to have a sip of perfect coffee with its Temperature Control Chamber. This allows a small amount of coffee (about one sip) to be "cooled" to your preference, eliminating burning your tongue or the roof of your mouth, while still keeping the remainder of coffee hot.

Here's how it works:
Just Tip

And Sip

Liquid quickly enters
BRUGO's
patented
Temperature Control Chamber.

It's instantly adjusted to the perfect temperature, while the remaining coffee stays hottest and most aromatic.

Make sure you allow yourself time to get used to moving the dial to tip and cool the coffee as well as the motion to get the coffee into the chamber to cool! But you should only have to do that a few times and then be able to use the "sip" function, basically using it like a regular travel mug.
It is not leakproof, but you'd have to turn it upside down to figure that out!
It also is not microwave (stainless steel finish) or dishwasher safe. That's not too much of a problem for me because I also have stainless steel pans and knives that shouldn't be washed in the dishwasher.

I've been told that they often run promotions, such as the current one:
25% off when you buy 2 or more mugs AND free shipping on orders over 50.00!

  2. I'm a fan of the "passion" color! It seems so girly and is the same color as the bridesmaid dress I'm wearing for my brother's wedding next month! :)

    although if I'm feeling less jazzy and more like an executive, I love the Mediterranean color... I've always liked anything green, but this color is reminiscent of tropical vacations!
