BRUGO Mug Review and Giveaway

With my husband and I both being coffee and tea drinkers, we have acquired an insane amount of travel mugs over the years. At last count, we had 8 travel mugs in our cupboard. Recently though I discovered a travel mug that will replace all the others in my cupboard! The Brugo Mug is a revolutionary invention that will change the face of travel mugs as we know it.


About The Brugo Mug:

BRUGO is an elegant, patented technology that allows coffee and tea enthusiasts to enjoy every sip of their hot beverage in the "Perfect Temperature Zone", while eliminating the spills, spatters and burned lips that are a familiar part of the "to-go" coffee experience. At the same time BRUGO offers the consumer the answer to optimal flavor and unsurpassed convenience.

Fresh coffee is brewed at 205 degrees, but its vibrant flavors are most ditinguishable and pleasing at around 150 to 170 degrees. By using a simple "tip and sip" motion, BRUGO users transfer sip-sized amounts (one fluid ounce) of their hot beverage to the temperature control chamber, where it immediately reaches this Perfect Temperature Zone. Only the liquid in the chamber is cooled and only this liquid exits the sip opening. A tight seal keeps the remaining coffee at its hottest and most aromatic. This inventive system eliminates the need for coffee drinkers to blow on their beverage, add ice to it, or wait for it to cool. Instead, they have immediate access to their hot beverage, and they can enjoy it longer.


The BRUGO lid has three options: LOCK, TIP & COOL, and SIP. The LOCK setting seals the mug and is perfect for transporting the beverage without spilling. TIP & COOL gives the consumer the full benefits of the temperature control chamber. Once the beverage int he mug has cooled to a palatable temperature, users simply turn the dial to SIP and drink the beverage directly.



"I lvoe coffee but I don't love waiting for it to cool down," said Spero Pavlopoulos, President and Founder of Jolex. "BRUGO is a truly unique product that delivers maximum enjoyment of any hot beverage. In addition, it eliminates accidental spills, reduces burns to the mouth, and provides coffee sellers with a powerful way to enhance the customer experience."

BRUGO is an especially attractive option for drivers who know what it's like to spill coffee on themselves or stain their vehicle's upholstery. As Americans spend more time commuting to work, their choice for drinking coffee on the go becomes increasingly critical. For those coffee drinkers concerned about appearances, BRUGO is ideal with its sleek design and array of stylish colors.



My Review:

As I am home with my children, I do not use a travel mug as often as I used too, so for this review, I had my husband help me out. I received a BRUGO mug from the Executive Collection, seen above, in the color Seaglass. I gave him a few days of taking the mug to work with him, and then asked him to give me his honest opinion. Here is what he thought:

"I really love that I don't have to wait to drink my coffee...it really does do what it claims to (keep cool enough to drink, yet stays warm) and I love the professional look of the mug itself. Working in an office environment, a sports team logo travel mug just does not cut it when meeting with the boss, or meeting with clients. This mug also fits great in my truck!"

When I showed my sister the website for the BRUGO, she was so excited. She works as a nurse and thinks this would be great to have at the nurse's desk, since its spill proof, and also looks nice! I think I may be purchasing a few of these for the upcoming Christmas season. 

The Brugo mug is perfect for men, women, professionals and otherwise. I highly recommend the BRUGO mug and give it a huge thumbs up!

  2. I learned that BRUGO is the only travel mug in the world to have a thermodynamic patented temperature control chamber that makes your coffee fit to sip at the perfect 150 to 170 degrees to stimulate the taste buds for the vibrant coffee flavor that is desired. I would like the Passion (Pink) color.

    PS With a BRUGO mug, I might not have dried hot chocolate stains between the console and the driver's seat of my car.

  15. I learned that the Brugo Mug was developed by Spero Pavlopoulos after frustration with the current mugs on the market. His frustration led him to develop the Brugo Mug.
    I like the color Dusk from the Executive Collection.
