Mo' Joe

Wake up in style with these Pittsburgh-proud coffee mugs.

I once wrote that "Coffee makes the world go 'round," and, "Sometimes it feels like love and coffee are all we really need in this life."

Like many Pittsburghers, I'm a devoted coffee drinker. Health problems a year ago forced me to give up caffeine completely, but I continue to worship at the altar of Dunkin' Donuts and Keurig. I still wake up each morning with the first thought in my brain being, "CAWF-EEEEEeee," said much the same way Cookie Monster says, "COOOOK-EEEEEeee."

It's decaf in my mug these days, and this is my best friend:

My coffee tastes better, richer, dare I say ’Burghier in this $5.99 mug I found at my local Dunkin' Donuts — a mug that features the city skyline and Fallingwater, and it got me wondering if there are any other amazing Pittsburgh mugs out there that I need to add to my current collection of one.  

The internet did not disappoint. Check these out and maybe one of them will soon be the vessel from which your morning cup of joe flows.
