Review & Giveaway: BRUGO Travel Mug (These mugs are amazing!) - Closed

This giveaway has ended!  Thanks for visiting!
Brugo Mug (with top removed)

Working full-time, I am typically running out the door with a hot cup of coffee each morning on my way to the office. I have a Tassimo® coffee maker, so making a cup of coffee is the last thing I do right before walking out the door. I prefer to drink my coffee on the way to work (it’s a 30 minute drive, and I like to be caffeinated when I get to work), but I always burn my mouth when I take those first couple sips (gulps)! I was really excited to try out the BRUGO travel mug with its promise of delivering your hot beverage at the perfect temperature every time using their patented temperature control chamber while keeping the rest of your coffee hot longer. There are two options for drinking your hot beverage with the BRUGO travel mug, you can “tip and cool” using the cooling chamber or sip bypassing the cooling chamber.


I received the BRUGO travel mug in Seaglass, and the color really reminds me of the pieces of glass we picked up while walking the beaches in Australia (I love it!).

As I said before, I am a coffee gulper, regardless of the temperature so it took me a little while to get used to the “tip and cool” feature of the BRUGO travel mug since it is truly a sip of coffee. I used the “tip and cool” feature of the mug while the coffee would have burned my mouth and after about 15 minutes or so of being patient, I switched to bypassing the cooling chamber. The “tip and cool” feature really does work to cool the coffee and being an engineer, I really want to disassemble the lid to figure out how it works but I like my mug too much to destroy it!

I am excited to say that I no longer burn my mouth on my early morning coffee while driving to work. I tried the mug out for a couple of weeks and really liked it. It fits well in the car cup holder, looks appealing, and fits in my Tassimo® coffee maker, so would likely fit in a Keurig® as well. My only disappointment is that the mug is hand-wash only, which works great at the office but I always tend to leave my travel mug in the car since I try to stick to one cup of coffee a day and I can be too lazy at the end of the day to hand wash it for the next morning.

I know you're ready to buy your own BRUGO travel mug (these will make perfect gifts too), and right now you can save on your purchase of any 2 or more mugs (only $14.95 each when you buy 2) and receive free shipping when you spend $50 or more - Stock up now so you're ahead for the holidays!

I learned about the PTZ - temperature between 150-170 degrees being best for drinking coffee!

The cooling channel for liquid is truly unique. I don't know any other travel mug brand that has this feature.

The cooling chamber is what really makes the mug unique. You will get your sip of coffee at just the right temperature.

I learned that you can choose whether to lock, tip & cool, or sip. Never seen the tip & cool chamber in a mug before.

I follow you on NetworkedBlogs and just enered your Bandabling giveaway. Still looking for Google Friend Connect!

As a caffeine addict, always-late-for-work commuter, and connoisseur of vessels designed to hold my precious caffeine supply, the thing I love most about the Brego mugs is that they're spill-proof. This is not a small thing, especially when you're busy and your car is full of dogs. The mugs are lovely -- I'd want one in each color! -- but the fact that I could finish a cup of coffee without wearing any, or getting any on the upholstery by accident, is a Very Big Deal.
