BRUGO ~ The Perfect Degree of Taste {giveaway}




Back in my previous life I worn a white blouse to work each and every day, it was part of my required uniform. But, do you know what was on that blouse most days? Yup, splashes of brown spilled coffee, and I wasn't alone. If you were to look at my co-workers you would see the same thing - ugly brown coffee stains. We all worked late evenings and had short turn arounds in the morning so coffee on the go was a must. My co-workers and I always struggled to find an alternative (and it wasn't going to be giving up coffee - we needed it), we all tried the latest and greatest travel mugs, but, still the staining persisted. Now, looking back, I say where was BRUGO when we were trying to find a solution?




While, I no longer travel back and forth to work each day, my love of coffee has not ceased. Even though, most days I enjoy my coffee at home, I find we still have mishaps. With children running around there are often bumps and small spills of coffee. I always find myself holding my mug up and saying - be careful of the coffee!

Then BRUGO came into my life. I use it around the house, but, I can see how any one traveling or commuting would see the benefit of using a BRUGO mug. In the couple of weeks I have been using my Mist coloured BRUGO, it has transformed the way I drink my beloved cup of coffee.

BRUGO is available in the most fabulous array of colours - their colours aren't ordinary colours, meaning a mug to suit every personality!

You are probably asking what makes BRUGO so special and different from the travel mugs you have in your cupboard right now?


The secrets of BRUGO revealed ~

Patented temperature control chamber
Three position drink mode selector
Double-wall insulation
Fits most cup holders
No-slip bottom
Ergonomic grip

I boxed up all the other travel mugs we owned, (and, over time we have accumulated many - companies love to give them out as incentives) they have been donated to the Salvation Army. The BRUGO mug is like no other. I love how it keeps my drink hot, and only allows a bit into the Temperature Control Chamber. Each and every sip is coffee heaven! Your cup of coffee doesn't get the chance to become cold or bitter, since BRUGO does the job of keeping your drink at the proper temperature. But what you tip and sip is the perfect temperature. There is no more waiting for it to cool, or burns to the lips and tongue. The BRUGO is not leak-proof though - if held upside down it will drip. But, it does eliminate those splashes of coffee which I was experiencing with my white uniform blouse.

If you don't want to use the Temperature Control Chamber - but I am not sure why you wouldn't - you can by-pass it and just drink as usual. The mug holds a lot of coffee - a coffee shop large. BRUGO mugs are built to last. In our home it has been dropped more than once and it withstands that wear and tear easily.

I am planning to gift BRUGO mugs for many members of my family. My hubby's dad has just retired from a career in long-haul trucking and he is going to be returning to help on the family farm. He loves hot water with milk (he is allergic to coffee, so this is his alternative), with the BRUGO mug he can take his favourite drink out to the fields this spring. I think this is a perfect little happy retirement gift for him.

One thing I thought I wouldn't like was the lack of a handle, but, really it hasn't phased me at all. I really like the etched grooves for easy holding.

BRUGO mugs are available for the cost of $24.99, but if you purchase two then they are only $19.99 each. These make fantastic gifts for just about anyone!


I had been wanting a BRUGO mug for quite some time, and it definitely didn't disappoint!
