    this one has been my faithful commuter cup for the last 3+ years.
    Christmas gift from my step Daughter/Son in Law.

    My weekend cup is just a proverbial plain ol’
    “ Coffee cup”

    The office mug. The one in my Jeep is just a standard target $5 ceramic 4 cup cup. That’s enough to slam on the way to work. Since I quit smoking I love black coffee...and I can taste a slight metallic taste that ruins it for me. Has to be black as the blackest night and in a ceramic mug. 6F8ED74A-BA00-45DA-B795-C52E62DA1330.jpeg

    I don't have a picture, but my favorite mug is a Waffle House mug I flirted with a waitress for. I like it because the lip of the mug is real thick ceramic. Beefy mug.

    Did you use lines like "I just love the way your sweat glistens off of your mustache"?

    As long as you discard the spent tea bags into the harbor, I remain unprejudiced.

    Be careful with ceramic mugs in the car. I know someone who got into a wreck with one... Bad news.

    Cup? As in, just one? Shoot, these three are the ones at work... They got me the frequency allocations one on the left as a gag because I work from DC to daylight...

    We have a new Waffle House near me.

    I'll wait a few years to let the new mugs season before asking for one.

    The cheapest plain white ceramic one at Walmart (looks like the diner ones at Waffle House) - cost 79 cents.

    That's why I hate making coffee at work. The coffee makers here generate hot water that tastes like metal. I can pick that up over any other flavor.

    How was the Five Finger Death Punch blend? I started with their Gunship roast, while it is good, it is far too mellow and any cream easily overpowers the coffee flavor (but the fresh grounds smell great).

    I have recently switched to their Freedom blend, which I find to be a more robust coffee, with a mild acidity, not too bitter. It gives a more balanced coffee flavor with cream, but the fresh grounds smell a bit more bitter.

    Says "JUSTIFIED" on the it in small (too small) red letters. From the TV show but I have taken poetic liberty to stretch it to any use I deem necessary being "justified" by said mug.

    It's fun to have meetings with people and drink from it. Instant 10 points of high ground leverage. Bonus points if I set it down aimed at someone.

    I was in New Hampshire for a client visit a couple years ago. There was a.....lady....in the hotel restaurant that went on a 5 minute rampage cussing out the waiter because he brought her a "Mug" of coffee when she clearly ordered a "Cup" of coffee. Yes, she cussed him out over the shape of the vessel.

    Guy at a former place of employment drank coffee, ate oatmeal, and made soup all in the same mug--without washing it. Maybe an occasional rinse, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    You could get a thousand-yard-stare by looking into it...

    With a paper towel wipe... I don’t like it all drippy and stuff


    Sometimes my wife snags it and runs it thru the dishwasher

    What's the purpose behind not washing a coffee cup?

    The 5FDP is my favorite. A local gun shop and a local “small business items only” business carries them. Must be in season because all I’ve found was “fit to fight blend.” It’s ok. I also like Murdered Out. Just Black is just bleh lol. CaF is pretty good for pre gym fuel. Tried it cold brew and not my thing. Cold brew needs cream unfortunately

    Is this a reference to that creepy ass Grain Berry cereal commercial?

    As a pharmaceutical biologist, I could tell you where your actual flavor is coming from. My mother-in-law doesn't wash her coffee cups either. Nastiest shit I've ever seen. I scrub the **** out of their cups when I'm around.

    Where are you finding it in stores? I joined their coffee club, but unfortunately not all their coffees are included in that option. I do want to try 5FDP and Blackbeard's Delight.

    My wife had two similar mugs, one with rabbits and one with elephants. She had them a couple of years before she noticed what the critters were doing. Sadly, the elephant mug got broken, but the bunnies are still going at it. :p

    Exact reason I am not in the club lol. None of the flavors I like are available.

    One store is a gun store and the other is a store dedicated to American Small businesses. They do allow folks to sell their brew and it appears to generate regular traffic into gun stores. Seems like A no brainer for gun shop owners because i eventually grab a doodad, shirt or ammo with my coffee.

    I'm going to have to grab a cup I picked up from Germany about 13 years ago. I've never used it for anything but to hold ammo, and left it at my parent's house. I'm sure you all will get a kick out of it.
