When I saw this cup I had to have it... so cool looking with the cork bottom. The coffee does not stay hot for more then a few minutes and the lid does not fit properly. They need to put some kind of lining in the cup to keep beverages from cooling down so fast. I have had this for a few months now.... as soon as they hit the shelf I had it. I have used it maybe 5 times. I do not even know where it is now... shoved back in a corner somewhere I suppose.

Cold coffee

By demobd

from Bellingham, WA, USA

Just bought this mug because it looks so cool and thought it would hold the heat well with the lid and all. Well, the cup gets hot to hold and loses the heat quickly. I love the look, the cork bottom, and the large drinking hole... just doesn't keep the beverage hot!

Need redesign lid

By KMC89

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

The quality of the cup was great.
Only thing that need to improve was the design of the lid which should be close tight to prevent dust or small insect fall into the black cup.

Lid doesn't fit on either mug


from Carmel, IN, USA

Lid doesn't fit well on either black or white mug so coffee slurps out and does not stay hot

Nice looking but badly designed

By Krzysztof

from Henderson, NV

See all my reviews

This mug looks great. But there are two major problems:
1. Coffee cools quickly. The reason is obvious--the sides of the mug feel very warm, so clearly the heat is being transferred through the wall of the mug, even with the lid in place.
2. The feel of the mug against the lips is not ideal. This morning I dribbled coffee on my jeans as I was sipping. This does not happen with other cups and mugs.
Aside from those things, there is a slight learning curve to attaching the lid: You have to put the tab area of the lid inside the rim, then press down on the pouring area to lock it into place. But that is easily mastered.

Really like the cup except!

By PitViper

from Oil City, PA, USA

This is really well designed from size the way the retaining lid fits and cork bottom to prevent slippage and drips from collecting under it, the cup does not retain any heat if anything it exhausts the heat of the coffee. For those that like room temperature coffee I recommend it.

Light but effective

By Simpsonphan

from Yonkers, NY, USA

I just ran out to buy this cause my mugs keep being stollen at work. I love the cork bottom, dunno how long it'll last with washing and heavy use though. Not near as heavy as you'd think but that doesn't bother me too much. I love the lid topper, coworkers tend to knock me around so hopefully this will help out so my shirts don't become stained as often
