First of all - we love bacon, and second of all we love bacon and coffee. The Taz Ah mug can accomplish both these things and even cloak your coffee nose in a pig snout. You could also look at this mug and say, "What a great way to have someone have no idea they look like a pig." Because at plain sight, the Taz Ah is a white bone china mug, very thin, very high quality, and ready for pranks. However you use it, this mug is sure to be a hit for anyone getting or receiving it. You can also get the mug with a rabbit nose too, but we're bummed the dog nose is sold out.

We are a more of a "half-full" kind of web site here at Single Serve Coffee, but in our daily lives we like to have a more laid back sarcastic approach to living. If you think a clear mug with such a phrase warrants a good laugh or smirk, then this mug may be for you. The classic phrase "this glass is now half-empty" is screen-printed on the basic mug ($9.95) and etched onto the executive model ($19.95). We'd go with the etching over the print, as we think most printed mugs wear out over time - or do they? The best part of trying to purchase such a mug? It's only available at Despair.com.

We've been trying to find a more Summer looking travel mug for our coffee and we think the Copco 16oz Jazz Thermal Travel Mug might be it. We like the nubbly dimples for gripping on the side, and we think the double walled construction with a stainless steel liner should keep our single serve summer coffee hot or cold. It also has a really nice non-slip base and the mixture of shiny and matte textures should keep up our design in mind like appearance.

Anyone remember the Weebles? These espresso cups have a round bottom that keeps them upright so they wobble but they won't fall down. So, if you're a Nespresso owner, or perhaps you just want to get that coffee lover in your life something different, these espresso cups are for you.

We like the thought of not having to remember to close the drink hole on our travel mug, and we like the look of the Contigo West Loop Autoseal mug from Ignite. This slim and trim travel mug will also fit into most drink holders and the quick release-quick seal trigger allows you to choose when to get your single serve coffee out of the mug. Currently available in black, silver, and blue, the mug also features double wall insulation and can be found at Target and other places for around $20 bucks.

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.
