As the weather turns from crisp autumn to chilly winter, here is a collection of 10 coffee mugs for the adventurer in all of us. Hot-chocolate works too.
1. The Conservationist
United by Blue’s Inlet enamel steel mug is perfect for rough wear and tear because it’ll never break! A fantastic company to boot, for every item purchased, they remove 1 pound of trash from waterways. Go check out UBB’s entire collection of coffee mugs.
2. The Drifter
Brought to you from the Mug Yourself Etsy Shop located in Poland, this drifter mug is engraved—not printed—and sure to last as you go again to walk alone, down the only path you’ve ever known, like a drifter… you know the rest.
3. The Pacific Northwesterner
Stumptown is to Portland as Starbucks is to Seattle. Wherever you hail, drink your favorite roaster with pride. Perfect for a rainy day in the Pacific Northwest, grab this Stumptown Coffee Roasters mug.
4. The Bohemian Gypsy
The Home Sweet Camper mug. This one is for the airstream fixer-upper dreamers and the ones who actually finished their renovations.
5. The Off-Roader
The Off-road mug. Bring your 4x4 off-road truck, and mug, to watch the mud show. Just be careful—coffee looks an awful lot like muddy water.
6. The Sailor
This Ship in a Bottle enamel mug is for sailors and liveaboards alike. Or even for the patient souls who celebrate the maritime art of building a ship in a bottle.
7. The Biker
Many pro cyclists are coffee connoisseurs. Fuel up with a morning cup from this Wander mug by Wishing Star Pottery.
8. The Mulder-Scully
We all know a Mars settlement is getting closer to reality. Why not first check out the area and stay with alien hosts? This UFO Adventure mug is for both tin-foil hat conspiracists and skeptics.
9. The Cryptozoologist
Believe in Bigfoot mug by Meriwether of Montana. If you’re a cryptozoologist, some adventures start in your own backyard. Take for example Marshall Erikson from HIMYM:
10. The Freewheelin’
Bob Dylan, Nobel Laureate. The Swedish Academy had almost given up looking for him. Turns out, he had grabbed One More Cup of Coffee for the road (see what I did there?), and was hiding out in the moonlit woods by a campfire writing more lyrics. If you’re a Dylan fan, grab this Campfire Moonlight Coffee Dylan mug.
Do you have favorite coffee mugs?
Or one you stash in the back of the shelf when guests are over? For fear it will break? Or maybe it’s already chipped and has special meaning so you’ve preserved it best you could by storing pencils or paint brushes. However you use it or whatever you drink from it, share your tried and true.
