When I order a latte at Starbucks it always includes a 'for here' mug. Most of the time the order taker knows what that means because it's a special order when you deviate from the signature white paper cup. I like to drink my coffee in a ceramic mug when I'm not taking it to-go, which is more often than not. It makes my daily coffee experience so much more enjoyable. It feels like home.
Did you know that in most espresso joints you can order your coffee in a ceramic mug? It's simple, all you need to do is ask. The paper cup is only necessary when your taking life on-the-go. Is taking your coffee to-go really necessary every single day? With the pace of daily living being so hurried and disconnected, I find that twenty minutes to linger with my cup-a-joe is practically therapy. It feels right to start my day stopping to reflect, breathing in the morning and taking time to view the wide angles.
