I was sick and tired of the small coffee mugs in the cupboard and was searching for a 'real' mug. This coffee mug holds a good 16 ounces of coffee, okay a little less as the coffee is hot and I add creamer. Not only does it do the job, it also looks great. I look forward to waking up and enjoying my coffee, without the frequent trips for a refill. Additionally the artist, who made the mug, engraves their name in the bottom of each mug. I would recommend these mugs, or any of the other versions, in fact I bought the sun and moon mugs as a wedding gift for a neighbor.
