Tinware mug | GregoryWest

The only thing better than the morning’s first cup of coffee, is if it’s accompanied by a roaring campfire and a shimmering lake stretched out before you. A beautiful picture, all rustic and serene, but as Nicolas Cage’s Little Junior Brown said in 1995’s Kiss of Death remake, I don’t like the taste of metal in my mouth. And so, I was happy to come across these great Tinware mugs, which look like the old-school ones you’d take camping, but are handcrafted ceramic instead. Dishwasher and microwave safe, they’re excellent for that all-important shot of caffeine as I head into morning meetings … and plan my next trip to the lake.
