A new mug

Wednesday, March 14, 2007

My office has one of those corporate Flavia coffee machines. When we moved offices back in December, I was annoyed to discover that the new machine made even worse coffee than the last machine and that my ceramic mug did not fit under the coffee dispensing spout. So for the last few months I have been using the provided paper cups and shuddering at the waste of paper.

Today I took action and marched over to the MoMA Design Store to buy this paper cup doppelganger by We Are Happy to Serve You. I brought it back to the office, and sure enough, it works like a charm. However, the coffee's still crap. Maybe if am persuasive, I can convince the powers that be to buy all the staffers a cute ceramic mug for Christmas this year (instead of the $20 Starbucks gift card, ahem). It'd save them money in the long-run and it would prevent a lot of waste. In the meantime, I am pleased as punch with me new mug.

They have cheaper knockoffs of these at Pearl River Mart. Not as great as the original but they could do the trick.
