The mug we use in most reviews is the Bodum Corona 13 oz clear coffee mug.
With the help of our faithful readers, we've solved the mystery of the Single Serve Coffee review mug we've been using for over 3+ years. We were correct in thinking it was a Bodum coffee mug, but we didn't have the model correct. We thought it was an earlier model of the Pavina series - just not double walled, but we were wrong. It is in fact the Bodum Corona clear coffee mug. We found them at Whole Latte Love, and we think they are in limited supply, because we don't see them listed on the main Bodum site any longer. We also measured the volume of our cup - and it does indeed hold 13 oz.
We do recommend the more readily available Bistro Double Wall Thermal Coffee Mugs. They work equally as well, and if you want even more picks - check out the comments on the original article.

We have a long tradition here at Single Serve Coffee of using clear mugs in all of our single serve coffee reviews, and several readers have recently written in asking us where we found this clear coffee mug so they could purchase one. We thought we knew where they could, but have found out we can no longer find our precious clear mug for sale anywhere. Now a little background...
Since we first bought the Senseo over 3+ years ago, we also purchased on that same day a clear mug seen in almost all of our reviews. We have long thought the mug we feature in most of our reviews with a handle is from Bodum. Well - it's not. Apparently it's made in France (our only clue to it's origin), and over time we've seen the mug in Whole Foods and other locations for sale but never purchased another one.
Not our coffee mug, but a very strking
Bistro Double Wall Thermal Coffee Mugs
We did recently find the new Bistro Double Wall Thermal Coffee Mugs, that are both double walled and also have a handle. But these aren't the same thick sturdy glass construction we've come to know and love.
Please sound off in the comments on where and what clear mugs you've found, can find, or are using. It would be great to have an extensive list of new clear mugs so everyone can enjoy their single serve coffee in the only way we like to drink it - in the clear.

We love the Bodum Pavina 9-Ounce Double-Wall Thermo Glasses, because drinking coffee in a clear mug just doesn't get any better. The Bodum glasses suspend the coffee in a cradle of transparent goodness, and if you mix in a little cream and sugar, you'll witness a storm of sweetness within the clear walls flowing through your coffee.
Crafted of borosilicate glass, which is also used to make scientific lab equipment, the pair is exceptionally strong, lightweight, and thermal. The two-layer construction also resists heat and prevents condensation, so no matter what temperature the beverage is, the glasses remain comfortable to hold and safe for any tabletop.

The cup is made out of sugar and can be reused 3-4 times.
Want a biodegradable coffee cup that tastes and looks sweet? Anna Bullus’s Sugar Cup gives new meaning to term ‘biodegradeable’ with a vanishing cup made entirely of sugar. There is also no need to add sugar to your tea or coffee — as you can just add your tea or coffee to the sugar cup. One Cup or Two can be used up to four times, and come in an assortment of flavors including plain, almond and Irish Whiskey. This might also make a great Mojito cup as well.
The cups however don't look that appetizing...

Gun Mug is an interesting way to pull the trigger on your cup of coffee. We like the look, but we're not sure this is the best message to send at the office. Perhaps reserve the days you use the Gun Mug to let people know to keep their distance.

We don't advocate throwing away your travel mug each time you use it, but this travel mug is made of paper instead of stainless steel. Made to look like a conventional travel mug, these paperboard made cups are meant to seem like the perfect on the go coffee cup. We're not sure if they are recyclable, but we really hope they are.

We're tired of eyeballing our coffee and cream to get the same exact cup of single serve coffee. Aren't you? These new Pantone Coffee and Tea mugs will help stop the eyeballing and get you on track to create the exact remix of coffee and creamer every time. We can only hope that these mugs will work for our Pepsi and milk fetish as well.

Are you tired of trying to carry more than one cup of single serve coffee at a time to your guests who are demanding second and even third cups of coffee? The Link Coffee Mugs should fix this problem. These revolutionary mug links together, each one has a plus sign shaped connector, female on one side and male on the other, allowing them to connect up. The recommended maximum for linking up is six cups, but we think we could do eight or even possibly a dozen.

If you aren't familiar with Pantone colors, chances are you aren't a graphic designer. In the past, many of the staff here at Single Serve Coffee enjoyed Pantone 168 C (a very nice red) and other Pantone colors. Even if you are not a designer, we think these brightly colored interesting mugs should pick up your single serve coffee morning.
