Aside from a proper whiskey (or whisky, if one prefers), nothing goes quite so well with a relaxing smoke than a cup of coffee. We here at Smokingpipes certainly know that well enough, as along with the nearly constant haze of pipe smoke which defines our office's atmosphere, we also tend to go through about a dozen carafes of freshly ground-and-brewed coffee ourselves. Fitting enough, then, that we should present this rather capacious Smokingpipes logo coffee mug, to accompany your enjoyment of the broad variety of blends and briars we seek to offer.
Made in China for those who care. The logo was a bit off center so if you're paying attention it looks a little odd. This might be unique to my mug though. Other than that it's a solid mug, no imperfections in the materials, and holds up well to the... Read More dishwasher. It's like the Missouri meerschaum of mugs. It does what you want at a low price.

The Archetypal Mug
November 21, 2012
By: Mark I.
Product: Gifts Coffee Mug
When Smokingpipes put this coffee mug up for sale sometime last spring, I asked them if they could tell me how much coffee it holds, as the description of “rather capacious” seemed rather . . . vague. They said they’d get right on it. Crickets. Well,... Read More the months have come. Crickets. And gone. Crickets. I could see it was going to take a real coffee drinker to step up and do the job.
This is your Archetypal Hefty Businessman’s Ceramic Coffee Mug, 250ml, or 8.453505639725 ounces, two-tone (the inside is fully marooned), Melitta Group 4 or Techni Vorm XL, designed to withstand endless abuse and non-washing (why wash when you can rinse or add more coffee?) without damaging anything but the desk and possibly your floor. No Approval sticker from the European Coffee Brewing Association, so bets off for competition swilling. It's a heavy beast, designed to minimize spilling if you're prone to the caffeine shakes after six or eight mugs.
It would appear to be dishwasher and microwave safe, but I’ll have to update my review later on to let you know about fading. For now:
