Just like a magpie, upon entering the Saxbys Coffee at Rittenhouse over the weekend, my eyes instantly honed in on something shiny sitting atop the coffee fixins' bar... Amidst the sugar packets, napkins, and mixers, a rhinestone encrusted Saxbys Coffee mug sat gleaming, with the light bouncing enticingly off each of the faceted stones.
In actuality-- there are many logical reasons that facilitate buying a "to-go" coffee mug, but if I'm being honest-- my choice was ultimately made so that I could have something pretty to hold (and drink from).
For $14.99, the "Tiffany Tumbler" offers an insulated, bejeweled way to safely carry your hot (or cold) drink anywhere you go. This purchase is as aesthetically pleasing as it is "green;" not only do you cut down on waste (nothing to throw-out when you're done) but you also save money-- every refill of Hot or Iced drip coffee is only 50-cents!
(And don't worry-- there are plainer "to-go" options for those less rhinestone-enthused than myself, and any Saxbys Coffee "to-go" mug can take advantage of the 50-cent refill special.)
With the Philadelphia heat threatening to unleash itself on us any day now, I am happy for the cute accessory that can currently* double as an Iced coffee canteen.
*Come Autumn, Iced coffee will be swapped back out for Hot drinks.
