The Most Unique Coffee Mugs To Buy Right Now

Hi, my name is Emma, and I’ll be your coffee concierge for the rest of this post. 

If there’s anything in this world that provides universal satisfaction and happiness, it’s coffee. Coffee has that power to make a good day amazing, a bad day better, and a conversation with a colleague much more bearable. If there is a god out there, they knew we humans needed this. 

My addiction to coffee started relatively young, growing up in a Latin household. Meaning, I’ve been tweaking since about 11 years old & my mug collection is overflowing with years of birthday gifts, travel keepsakes, and meaningful memories/inside jokes. Not only does coffee have the power to make you feel some type of way, but so does the mug that holds it all together.

With home decor trends on the rise and taking over all of our feeds, I’m beginning to notice that several brands are starting to get real funky and artistic with it, which we all are so here for. With self-expression and self-love being the focus of 2021, what better way to show up for yourself than by having the sickest mugs in the game? 

Half the fun of brewing my first cup of coffee in the morning is picking out the mug. It’s much more fun when you have a million different mugs with a million different meanings, all trying to grab your attention at 8 am. These mugs love me, and I them. That’s why I think everyone needs a giant collection of mugs, to feel the warmth of waking up to the smell of heaven and being embraced by a bunch of mugs screaming, “pick me, pick me!”

According to, several different types of coffee mugs are chosen based on materials & functions. These are all up to personal preference and what you believe is the best mug to hold your cup of liquid gold in:

The different types of coffee mugs include: 


Pros: Durable, microwavable, good insulation, & most common type of mug.
