I love these mugs. They are great quality. I don't understand why the previous reviewer did not like them. That person did obviously not read the description as it clearly states those are bone china mugs, which means they are thin. They are like fine china, beautiful but also functional. We bought a blue set about one year ago and they are all used daily and are still in perfect condition. I would definitely recommend it. It makes a very unique gift!
I was looking for mugs that hold at least 16 oz of liquid to replace chipped ones and these were a terrible disappointment. The minute I opened the package, I knew they were going back. The ceramic is so thin that you know they'll break after a few times; the volume was no where near what they advertised; and the handle was too thin and tight for a large man's hand (i.e. my husband's.) Yes, they are cute but they are such low quality that you should not bother to get them except for decoration. For coffee, no.
