Ok, here is your chance to show me (or tell me) about your favorite coffee cup or mug! Do you have a favorite one? Do you use the same one every day? Here in the office I broke my favorite mug and have borrowed the one in the picture. It's a larger size mug and I like it for that reason. It has a pretty scene on it that is peaceful. Eventually, I will remember to bring me another favorite cup from home! At home, my favorite cup is a new one that I got for Mother's Day from my grandson. It has his picture on it on one side and "I Love Grandma" on the other side. It's special and unique and of course was a shoe-in to become my favorite! What about you? Do you have a favorite coffee cup or mug? What makes it special? And what does it look like?? Post your pictures for all to see!

In theory all mugs are the same, but I think most people would have their favourite one, at least I do! The one I like is big, perfect for a coup of hot tea in the morning! The mug I dislike very much is one that has the inside black and that just doesn't inspire me at all, as I prefer those that are white, or a nice colour.

Thanks for letting us know about your favorite! Black cups really don't bother me, I actually considered a set of black dishes :)

I used to hide my favorite cut at home also when the girls were still at home. I don't have to worry now. My hubby has a favorite and I have my favorite. We both respect that :)

My favorite mug just says one word written in three lines. The word starts with a "B".

I don't have a favorite coffee mug that I use every day. But I do have a favorite mug that I use in the winter when I am sick and make broth to drink. It's funny, I never really thought about it until I read your post, but I always use the same one. It is deep and has a big handle and I like to wrap my hands around it to keep warm. But only in winter when I am sick- or on a cold autumn night. For my coffee, it's the first one I grab, usually half asleep at 6 am.

I do have a mug that I use most of the time but It doesn't bother me to use another mug in the house. I just like the one I use because it is thick glass and dark blue. I think its for some electric company we got it for free.

Ah, sounds like you are playing it safe with a durable cup! I hit send too soon and didn't get my office cup posted. Here it is...

And finally I have a picture of my favorite cup at home. Here is the one--it's a white mug with my grandson's picture on it and a saying on the other side, "My Grandma Loves Me!"

Yes, I have a favorite coffee cup. It has Winnie the Pooh and piglet on it. My daughter gave it to me about 15 years ago and I still use it every day unless it is in the dishwasher. My husband will actually take it out of the dishwasher and hand wash it for me on the weekends because he knows it is my favorite.

Hi there! I think that most people who are avid coffee or tea drinkers have that favorite mug or cup. I know that I do. Mine is my coffee mug from Austin Texas that says keep Austin weird. I lived there for a few years and loved the culture and the city. So while visiting last year I purchased the coffee mug. My coffee just does not taste the same unless it is coming out of that particular mug. I am sorry that you broke your favorite!

I have a new special one at home so that makes up for it! It has a picture of my grandson on it. I will have to put up a picture of it tomorrow. I'm having trouble transferring the file right now. So much for technology!

i drink a lot of tea and there a few "favorite" cups for different occassions and i never share them with anyone.if my family members need to drink they use their own cup ,guests have guest cups too. i have a set of fine china cups for when i use tea tags.and a special cup with filter for when i use loose tea leaves but only need a cup of tea.at dinner time i make tea from loose leaves in a tea pot and use a matching cup to drink out of.

I do have a mug for coffee which I use from my early ages which is not only my favorite but also very lucky for me. I drink most of the times coffee in this mug or cup. It has a message on it thats says the success will be after you every time you drink the coffee in this mug. Hence I use this mug every time and I succeed every time. Its really a very nice cup.

Yes I have a favourite mug, it's blue with a polar bear on it, and it has the words 'Ice Cool Dude' on it which pretty much sums me up! The mug has been with me for years, more than I can remember, think I would be right upset if it got broke, easy to clean too, no matter what I pour into it. No one else touches my mug, it's Wolfies! I would love however to find a mug with a wolf on it I would buy it for sure. Not very techno minded otherwise I would upload a photo, never works for me anyhow.

Oh, I have to agree with you Wolfie, a mug with a wolf or a couple of wolves on it would be a great choice for you! I can just picture a mug with a wolf sitting on a big rock and the other one with his neck stretched out howling at the full moon! That would be a perfect mug for you :)

yes I do it is an old brown mug from the 70's. It is dark brown on bottom and when it was made they used a tan glaze that looks like it is melting down on the top of the mug (I am a ceramists and familiar with different glazes). I love this mug cause it reminds me of my grandmother. She had mugs like this one. I will post a pic of it later.

I don't have a picture of it, but my favorite coffee cup is one that a friend of mine from church gave me several years ago. It has a picture on it from Thomas Kinkaid. I love that cup and it is more special because my friend gave it to me. I don't drink out of it every day but I do as often as I can.

My favorite mug is my big blue mug. I got it from dollarama after my other bid blue mug broke. I love the size cause it is big enough to get a real cup of coffee or tea yet not too big where the drink gets cold cause it takes too long to drink it all. It is pretty stained up and I wouldn't serve it to anyone and noone in the house ever takes it to use though I never said they couldn't. HEHE

I have 2 favourite coffee mugs, one in the office and the other at home. The office mug has 'Don't Bug me' and the one at home has a picture of a bulldog on one side, plus a little doggie on the handle.
