I never really liked disposable cups - whether they are made out of paper or styrofoam. I don't really walk and drink my coffee so I simply order "for here" and insist I get a washable mug/cup. I tend to not frequent cafes that do not have "real" mugs and cups. There are times, however, when I want to get a coffee across the street from work and bring it to drink in my office. I know there are a gazillion million brands of thermos coffee mugs on the market but what I want seem to be hard to find.
All I want is a small coffee mug. And please, don't tell me 16 oz is small. It isn't. Years ago, I found a perfect size carry mug at starbucks; it must be 8 oz, if that. The only problem is that it is made out of plastic.
