Not all mugs are created equal. But even amongst the best, one stands out — a travel coffee mug that allows you to make a second cup of coffee wherever you go. Yes, you read that correctly.
As its name implies, the Double Shot has a secret storage compartment perfect for storing the extra coffee needed to make a second full mug. With a built-in French press, all you need is some hot water and, voilà, your life has just improved tenfold.
The places you can take your Double Shot are limited only by your imagination — here are ten to get you started
1. A board meeting
The hour long meeting certainly requires copious amounts of caffeine to survive, but you don’t want to be rude (and obvious) by excusing yourself while Joe and Janet discuss the pros and cons of Slack for the tenth time. Instead, quickly brew a cup with your Double Shot, then sit back and try not to make it too obvious that you’re thinking of Star Wars again.
Embrace the adrenaline rush of jumping out of a plane by chugging coffee while you ascend to the proper altitude. As you prepare to make the leap of faith, hook your Double Shot to the carabiner on your pack and know that if you survive the fall, you can treat yourself with another hot mug of joe on the ground.
3. The Wilderness
The tranquility of being surrounded by (nearly) untouched nature doesn’t mean you can skip your daily coffee ritual. In fact, you’re supposed to double your caffeine intake while in the Wilderness. That’s a fact.
4. Route 66
The 2,500-mile stretch of road from Chicago to Los Angeles is known for oddball roadside attractions and natural wonders… but not coffee. Make the ultimate road trip a success by skipping the lukewarm, watered-down truck stop coffee and expensive, calorie-dense Starbucks drinks and opt for a fresh mug of the good stuff.
5. Cross-country skiing
Winter is cold. Spending hours outside atop feet of snow is colder. Stay warm with a mug of coffee you can sip continuously while skiing and defrost by enjoying a second cup back in the car.
6. The side of a cliff
There’s no better time for a coffee break than strapped to a cliff face 2,000 feet above the ground. You’ll be the hero of all if you bring enough to caffeinate your entire team.
7. The subway
Unlike car commuters, you can’t pull up to coffee joints whenever you need your fix. But that doesn’t mean you should purge your caffeine addiction… You’ll just have to bring your fix with you, that’s all.
8. At Subway
No one goes to Subway for their coffee. But your boss doesn’t factor in your need for footlongs and espresso when scheduling your lunch break. Beat the system with the Double Shot. That’s the definition of a win-win.
9. Mount Denali
The tallest mountain within the U.S., summiting the 19,685 feet peak is no easy feat. At least without coffee. Strap your Double Shot to your bag, whip out your hiking poles and, as Miley Cyrus once said, enjoy the climb.
10. On a horse
Traipsing through a winter wonderland on horseback is gorgeous and all, but also tiring and somewhat freezing. Feed two birds with one scone, as they say, and bring your Double Shot along for the ride.
The world is your oyster when you have a Double Shot. So go forth you caffeinated creature and live.
