Clip on.

MUG: Contigo™ double-walled stainless steel travel mug from Target™.

COFFEE: Colombian Supremo from What's Brewing™ via Central Market™. Burred up fresh.

This travel mug replaces a similar mug branded as Starbuck's™. The lid broke on it (started leaking), and the rubber base mysteriously disappeared. This improved version has a different lid mechanism, is totally leak-proof, and has (like the previous one) a carbiner handle so I can clip it to my Filson™ shoulder-bag/satchel/briefcase/man-purse.

The coffee is wonderful. Thank goodness I am out of Nicaragua™!

Eine Nicht Kaffe

MUG: Waechtersbach musician's signature edition. I wanted the Bach, but got seduced by the yellow Mozart.

COFFEE: Nica's Fair Trade Nicaraguan Supremo beans, medium roast.

NOTES: Bought a two pound bag, untested, because I like Nicaraguan coffee, and I like Fair Trade products, and the price seemed right. But this bag of irregularly roasted beans was a complete waste of money and time. I've been forcing myself to drink it for two weeks now.
