Wake Up And Smell the Mug

There’s no question about it, it is a lovely piece of art. I had got hold of it while having coffee in the hotel and was pleased with the presentation of a simple coffee. The coffee mug itself is a statement. They are modern and sleek mugs are so comfortable to hold with. If you are left-handed there is certainly a mug made just for you.

Now, if you are a coffee addict like me, then its time to grab one! This coffee mug is one of the new collections of Villeroy & Boch called NEW WAVE CAFFE is such a delight to sip coffee with.
