The Perfect Coffee Travel Mug

Is there such a thing as a perfect coffee travel mug? We want to find out. We drive a lot! Our fuel of choice is caffeine, hot or iced depending upon the season. We need the perfect coffee travel mug! Badly.

The Parrot Cafe Princess Tara 15 Ounce Travel Mug

We have a drawer full of coffee mugs. Most end up in the drawer because they just don't seem to do the job! They leak. The handles break off. They can't keep hot coffee hot or iced coffee cold. They're not microwaveable. We are desperately looking for suggestions for the perfect coffee travel mug.

Wait, there's more! Anyone who comes up with a suggestion that we actually like, we'll send that person a 10 ounce bag of our signature Blue Tara Blend whole bean coffee:

Red is Our Favorite Color

We fancy the color red!
Especially red parrots and red flowers.

Named for the song, of course!

Scratch and Sniff

We love technology. Almost as much as we love coffee. Our computers and smart devices can accomplish wonders. They can tell us where to find the best coffee, even if they can't brew the coffee for us. Just yet. So we're thrilled to offer our new Scratch and Sniff app:

It's simple. Just scratch the images on your screen, and sniff the wonderful coffee aroma, freshly roasted for your enjoyment!

Can't smell it? Be sure to go into your Control Panel and turn off your computer's aroma blocker. Most computer's come set for maximum aroma blockage. You'll need to adjust your levels for the optimal aroma experience.

Still can't smell it? Then apparently your computer comes permanently blocked. Then your only option is to just order the darn coffee from We guarantee you won't regret it.
