Brugo Review and Giveaway


ABOUT:

It's morning. You want that perfect cup of coffee. Time for the commute to work or off to see that client. Driving and coffee. What does all of this have in common? Spero Pavlopoulos.

Spero is a self-proclaimed coffee addict who wanted to enjoy fresh brewed coffee while commuting. Life before BRUGO meant whilst sitting in his car he had to remove the lid of his favorite brew to let it cool to a drinkable temperature. But the cup slipped, coffee spilled, and splattered everywhere... a disaster!

This prompted Spero to embark on a personnel crusade for a better mug. A spill proof coffee mug, an insulated coffee mug designed for a perfect cup of coffee. The best travel mug ever!

Life after BRUGO means that Spero reached the pinnacle of success, as defined by a coffee addict. A perfectly designed spill proof coffee mug, an insulated coffee mug all wrapped up in trendy colors with chrome  accents creating a designer look.

BRUGO. A perfect cup of coffee, so sit back, tip and sip. 

 MY THOUGHTS:

I have a very low heat tolerance. I often have to wait a ridiculous amount of time after making coffee or tea before I can take a sip without pain. Unfortunately for me, my Husband has a high heat tolerance. He normally drinks all of the hot beverages before I can even get to them. So, I was super excited to try Brugo.

I received the Seaglass mug pictured above. Let me say, that even without the amazing "Tip and Cool" feature I would love this mug! It is a well made, sturdy mug that has a great look and feel. Here are the features of a Brugo Mug:
  • Patented 2 oz/25 ml Temperature Control Chamber giving you sip by sip satisfaction at the perfect temperature
  • Double-wall insulation
  • 3-position drink mode selector -  "Lock, Sip, Tip & Cool" - allowing you perfect taste and temperature control whether you need a bolt of caffeine or prefer to linger over your coffee ritual
  • 16oz / 450ml capacity cup size - a large cup
  • Non-slip bottom keeping your coffee where you put it
  • Ergonomic grip for maximum comfort
  • 13 stylish colors
  • Stainless Steel and Chrome accents
  • Fits all cup holders


The best thing about the Brugo Mug is the "Tip and Cool" feature. You just tip the mug slightly to the side and it cools down the liquid inside. This is due to the Temperature control chamber inside the mug. The temperature control chamber is contained within a small area inside the mug. You hardly even notice that it is there and you still have plenty of room for your beverage. I admit that I was really excited to try this, but a bit skeptical. So, how did it work? Perfect! I tipped my mug and took a sip right after I made my tea. The temperature was warm, but not scalding. It was the perfect drinking temperature. It also kept my drink warm for a longer time than a normal mug would.


What if you don't want to cool your drink? No worries! The top of the mug has a 3-Function dial. and the Tip & Cool only goes into effect when you turn the dial to Tip & Cool. The other options are lock and sip. 

A Brugo mug is a great gift for anyone, but would be particularly great for someone with a low heat tolerance, or someone that drinks a lot of tea or coffee. Brugo even has some specials running right now. Buy two or more mugs and you receive 25% off. They also always offer free shipping on orders over $50. So, stock up on Brugo mugs!
