I’ll take mine milky

October 25th, 2008

My first job as a teenager was working at a mini-golf course where I would ring people up and hand out golf clubs and balls (you have no idea how many times I heard blue balls jokes). The owner of the golf course and his wife would hang out at the course during the day and sometimes I would offer to get the owner’s wife coffee at the local 7-11 when I was headed out to grab a Slurpee (hey, I was 15 and I lived in Long Island). She would usually say yes and then we needed to discuss what color she wanted her coffee, which meant we needed to look at knots of wood on the panelled walls and find one that matched a color that suited her coffee tastes.

Had she just had one of these color matching My Cuppa coffee mugs I wouldn’t have spent so much time discussing wood knots and milk with her. As someone who looks at Pantone chips several times a day, it makes so much sense to me to have a coffee cup that lets you consistently match your milk amount visually everyday.
