This might come as a surprise, but we’re huge coffee drinkers here at Mclaggan HQ. No, really! So when we heard it was International Coffee Day, it sounded like the perfect excuse to round up some of our favourite caffeine-inspired designs.

Check out these mugs we think any coffee lover will appreciate. Plus, bone china is wonderful to drink from.

Defenders of decaf, look away! This tongue-in-cheek design from Cammy Thomson is for when you absolutely must have your caffeine fix to face the day.

Whether it’s a large jug of java to take the edge off Monday morning, or a cup of Colombian to set you up for the weekend, we really appreciate the sentiment on this Annie Campbell mug.

Have you met my hot friend? Coffee knows just what to say to make it all better. A colourful new design from Cammy Thomson.

Stroppy Before Coffee and The People’s Republic Of Coffee, both by Bespoke Verse. Fun, bold and modern typographic designs in our Quite Big size (because who doesn’t need a larger coffee sometimes?)

If your heart is full to bursting at that first sip of coffee, Edward Monkton’s The Coffee Of Joy mug has your name on it! In typical Monkton style, the playful illustration on the front is accompanied by an offbeat poem on the back of the mug.

Not seeing anything you like? We have lots more coffee designs on our website. Take a look.

Coffee cravings still not satisfied? Here are some coffee-inspired recipes to try.

Cappuccino Loaf Cake

If you’re anything like us, there’s nothing better than a good bit of cake to accompany a cup of coffee. Double your pleasure with this cappuccino loaf cake recipe by Waitrose.

Classic Espresso Martini

Espresso martinis seem to be having something of a moment lately (not that we’re complaining). Combining two of our favourite things, cocktails and coffee, for the perfect Friday pick me up.

Cold Brew Coffee Three Ways

Like the espresso martini, cold brew coffee is the trendiest way to appreciate coffee at the moment. Distinct from iced coffee, and bringing out different flavours than traditional brews, cold brew coffee is steeped for 24 hours in cold water to bring out the flavour of the beans. Try it for yourself!
