I love coffee. I love the flavor, the smell, the warmth and I love to drink it several times a day. I also like it best when it’s piping hot. (Piping hot coffee is something you don’t do, according to coffee-purists, but I don’t care because that’s how I like it.) Because of my need for heat, though, I have been known to double up the coffee cup when no sleeve is available. I know it’s wasteful but this is my coffee we’re talking about. This is why, when I stumbled upon these coffee cup cozies from Atelier de Soyun and Bagel Creations, I was immediately thrilled.
Who knew? Ok. You might have, but this is a BIG revelation for me. There are hundreds of handmade variations online.
I’ll need 2 to 3 cozies and they’ll have to be machine-washable. I get places by walking mostly– I live right outside NYC–so the convenience of throwing a cozy in one of the many bags I’m schlepping with me is a great solution. I no longer have to double up on cups and sleeves, saving trees and the environment and keeping my coffee piping hot.
For the random days I do drive, a travel mug is my cup of choice. This ceramic coffee mug, from A Piece By Denise, would do the trick. Because it’s ceramic it feels like a regular mug I can curl my fingers around; however, it has the lid so when it’s time to go, I can pour what’s left in my coffee pot, snap on the lid, and run out the door.
Of course, I need a cute, coffee-inspired canister to store my beans. And this one from Whitewash Sundries is ideal. I love the glass etching, and size. It can sit on my countertop. And because it’s glass and simply designed, it goes well in my kitchen, as I imagine it can fit well in many decors. You can also change ribbon upon request.
