A Coffee Mug That Looks Like A Coffee Pot

Coffee Pot mug by Dave Delisle

Apologies for the lack of activity here, my other blog has been keeping me busy as of late. If you don’t mind wading through all the jersey designs you can find the odd hockey idea in there as well. Going forward I will try to balance things out between the two sites. The key word being try.

So here is a simple novelty idea: A coffee mug that looks like a miniature coffee pot. Inspired by those many times where I’m tempted to drink directly from the pot (co-workers be damned) during those moments of weakness. But mostly I just like the idea of carrying around a small coffee pot to flaunt my caffeine addiction.

Also this would be great for those single-cup coffee makers/espresso machines.

I’ve looked high and low for something like this. If I missed it please leave a note in the comments, because I really wouldn’t mind owning a few.

  1. Two suggestions for usability – the lip and the smaller rim are going to lead to spills everywhere. I’d suggest that the lip be rounded off inside, so it’s solid glass/pyrex/etc rather than the more traditional open lip.

    You’ve modelled it as a two-wall (insulated) glass, but the render looks as though the inner wall follows the contours of the outer rather than being straight-sided and having the ferrule ring be the narrowest gap between the sides. That in itself has issues with conductivity and structural strength, but I’d suggest it’s better than the alternative which would lead to spills.
