We bought this mug atin Antigonish, N.S. for $20 about five years ago. They go for $30 now; except for the price, this is a damn nice mug.
Some mugs are meant for coffee (I like a big-ass one), some for tea (I prefer dainty little things), and some for beer (I prefer the bottle). This mug is between a coffee mug and tea cup. It feels like your drinking from something made by hand; the surface is rough; the handle feels good; it has enough weight to not feel wimpy; and it looks damn nice.
I wouldn’t pay 30 bucks for a goddamn coffee mug, but it’s a nice mug to own, knowing it wasn’t Made In China.
