Happy Birthday To Us Event - Brugo Mug {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

I think that coffee may be one of my favorite things on the planet.  I was raised in the land of coffee (Seattle, that is) and have always had an affinity for the smell, taste and color of the liquid.  The only problem with coffee is that when it's hot, it can scald my mouth and being that I love it, I can never build up the patience to wait until it has cooled down enough to drink it.  Inevitably, I will take a big mouthful of coffee and it's too hot which then burns my tongue.  Burning my tongue could possibly my least favorite thing in this world, yet I still can't seem to wait even if it means not burning my tongue.  What's a girl to do?  Well, I can now say that I don't have anymore reasons to burn my mouth on hot beverages because of the Brugo mug!

The Brugo mug is a wonderful travel mug that comes in a large varieties of colors and styles that will fit all personal preferences.  The Brugo mug is a travel mug that has three settings; lock, sip and tip & cool.  Obviously, the tip & cool setting is the one which allows you to cool the coffee down slightly before drinking it and, thus, taking away the horrible burn!  Here's how it works, you take the mug and fill it with your favorite hot beverage.  Then you tip the mug forward which sends some of the liquid into the chamber that is located in the top part of the mug called the Temperature Control Chamber.  Swirl it around a few times to cool it off slightly and then sip the liquid through the opening.  It's as simple as that!

I was thrilled when Brugo offered to send me one of their mugs to review in my home.  Two days a week, I go to my part time job at 7 am (ugh!) and don't have the chance to have a cup of coffee at home.  I was struggling because I didn't have a good travel mug to take my coffee with me and frankly the coffee in my office is pretty bad. 

What Did I Think?

Brugo mug sent me a mug in Seaglass which is really a nice color.  My husband can use it without feeling too girly and it doesn't clash with any of my outfits! One of the claims of the Brugo mug people is that the liquid stays at an optimal temperature for longer than in other travel mugs and I would have to concur with that claim.  I never really had the coffee go cold on me, but that could be because I slurped it up within the first half hour!  As I said above, I really liked the tip and sip feature because it kept me from drinking too quickly and definitely saved my tongue from being burned.  I also like the fact that you can "lock" the mug.  It's not totally leak proof but it is spill proof so that even if you knock it over, you won't get everything on your desk or table soaked with liquid.  Sometimes I can be kind of a klutz so having that feature is really nice.  The last thing that I think is notable is the fact that the shape narrows at the bottom which allows you to set it in a cup holder in your car.  My cup holders are on the small side, so this makes it very easy to travel with the mug.

Where Can You Buy One?

Brugo mugs are sold in a couple of places, luckily for us!  You can purchase them directly from the Brugo website where there is a great sale going on right now; if you buy two or more the mugs are discounted from $19.95 to $14.95 each!  Just think, you could buy one as a gift for a loved one and get one for yourself for just $10 more!  I've also seen the Brugo mugs sold on Amazon.com.

You Can Also Win One!

Brugo mugs have generously offered to send one of my lucky readers a mug of their very own!
