It goes without saying that, at a sophisticated dinner, you drink your ristretto from a refined, tiny cup, extending your little finger as you do so. But when you just want to relax on the sofa at home, what you really want is a big coffee mug that you can warm your hands on. The good old coffee mug, which holds enough coffee to last a whole episode of your favourite soap, is often the most popular item in our tableware range . The mugs from Villeroy & Boch were designed especially for enjoying coffee in quiet moments: freshly-brewed coffee with Sunday breakfast, coffee with friends, or a soothing Irish coffee before bed.
The low cup is for tea, the small cup is for espresso, and the mug is for... whatever you fancy. Mugs are the only ones that do not come with specific standards. The coffee mug is just as happy to keep a lungo or mocha warm as a hot chocolate. Holding 0.3 to 0.45 litres, the coffee mug also almost always has space for a sweet squirt of cream or a shot of whisky – whatever you deserve today. With the exception of the special collections with Christmas motifs, the mugs in timeless Villeroy & Boch style are a perfect addition to any table all year round.
When it comes to large coffee mugs in particular, we set great store by strong porcelain with strong rims and good impact resistance. Our experts use a modern process to produce the mugs from radiant white premium porcelain or exclusive premium bone porcelain. Both the porcelain itself and the decoration are protected with a special lead-free glaze, making them dishwasher safe and allowing them and their contents to be warmed in the microwave (except those decorated with platinum or gold). Ever said cheers with a mug of mulled wine? Then you can probably recognise the quality of the Villeroy & Boch porcelain mugs by their bright ringing sound!.
Forget about flowers – surprise your friends and family with an unusual jumbo mug from Villeroy & Boch. Many of the original coffee mugs are available in lovingly-designed gift boxes, making them an original present that is ready in seconds. The colourful, creative motifs mean that a coffee mug set can quickly become the basis of a beautiful collection – ideal for celebrations like Christmas and birthdays. The unmistakeable designs can be combined with one another, producing a fun and colourful mixture. Needless to say, you also have the option of ordering mugs from specific collections in order to add to an existing service.
