MUG: Eleven ounce (one standard coffee mug) Chinese travel mug sold by MINI Lifestyles (a subsidiary of MINI USA). Perfect size for that last cup of coffee as you drive to work. Double-walled, stainless steel, vacuum insulated travel mug that actually fits in a MINI's cup-holder. The vacuum area is very small, so the insulating properties are small, too. The exterior is painted with a rubberized paint for excellent touch. The lid is omni-directional, and doubles as a drip cup when you get closer to end of your beverage.
COFFEE: 'Breakfast Blend' coffee beans, ground on demand by a monster-Kuerig coffee maker (no K-Cups) in MINI of Austin's customer lounge. Brewed 'strong' (the strongest of three choices). I don't think 'strong' means what Kuerig thinks it means. This machine replaces a similar Starbuck's-branded machine at the dealership.
NOTES: The ancestor of my MINI Clubman was the Morris Mini Traveller, whose father was the Morris Minor Traveller.
