If you're a huge fan of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, or are just an obsessive coffee mug collector, this Global Warming Mug from Firebox will either make your morning or scare the living hell right out of you. This worryingly relevant mug-with-a-message is adorned with a map of the world. Which is nice. What isn't particularly nice is what happens when you fill the mug with a hot cup of single serve coffee. Because as soon as the mug feels the heat, the land mass begins to disappear before your very eyes. Oceans start to spread across the coastlines as ice caps melt and water levels rise.
Our advice? Start drinking as much one cup coffee as you can with this mug around the office or house filled with disbelievers, and realize spreading the message about global warming is a very good thing.

Bodum now has the new Shin Bistro coffee, espresso, and tea cups available. These striking heat resistant glass mugs come with cork coasters to protect your coffee table. The design matches their Shin Bistro coffee press and we like the almost Star Trek feel of the entire line.

With a silicone seal that ensures no more spills, the Click and Seal Travel mug from OXO can be operated with a single hand. You simply click the button to open and close the seal on this stainless steel 14 oz travel mug. The Click and Seal Travel mug is also double-walled and has vacuum insulation to keep your single serve coffee hot or cold up to 7 hours. And we like the slim and trim base, as it looks like it will accommodate a wide variety of car cup holders.

Want a square coffee cup with a bit of fresh design? Look no further than the new Hugo Danti design Veil. Veil is not just a coffee cup, but is a service set that consists of a coffee cup and saucer, a sugar bowl and a milk vessel. We like the merger of old design standards with new fresh lines and an eye towards the future portrayed in the 1950's.

We love a good travel press for a distinct cup of single serve coffee. Even so, one cup coffee can be tough to make on the go, but this Travel Coffee press has a 16 oz. capacity and you can brew and drink right from the travel press. It's also insulated with double walls and has a spill resistant lik.

Newly-sprouted French design studio Anna Gram has released their newest concept, Ceramic for Mix. The included ceramic ball replaces a traditional spoon to mix milk and sugar into hot beverages such as tea and coffee. How does it work? You spin or rotate the hot glass while the ceramic ball mixes it up inside. We can only hope this doesn't result in your single serve coffee spewing forth from the top. The bottom of the clear glass is indented to hold the ball when it is not in motion as well.

The Teema collection is based on familiar and basic shapes – a circle, a square and a rectangle. Kaj Franck found them simply irresistible, and spent his time reducing all that was excessive, until only the essential remained. We love the fact the mugs are very stout and still have clean lines that transform them into a mug that's truly different.
