New Products: Ascaso Coffee Grinders and Sagaform Travel Mugs

Monday, March 19th, 2012

We’re now stocking the Ascaso I-Mini and I-Steel coffee grinders again. However, this time we’re carrying the i1 version of these models, which have a better spec than the i2 ones we used to sell.

Sagaform Travel Mugs

Some of you may remember me writing about these travel mugs back in March last year. I still stand by what a said back then. These mugs are great because as they’re made from porcelain there’s no metallic taste. One drawback though – if you don’t count only keeping drinks hot for around 45 minutes – when I make my partner a tea in mine, she says she can still taste coffee (she’s not a coffee fan – well not yet anyway). I’m not sure why, I think maybe the silicone lid absorbs some of the aromas.

Rattling Cup Holder

cup holder with new travel mugRecently I decided to take advantage of the Government Scrappage Scheme and swap my old beast for something a bit more refined. Everything is great with the new car, except for one thing, it makes a slightly annoying rattle when I used the cup holder.

Now I used to use a stainless steel Planetary Design travel mug; which is brilliant at keeping my coffee hot (possibly too good). I’d make it half an hour before leaving home, for it to be at a drinkable temperature 20 minutes into my journey! After an hour and a half, it would still be reasonably hot.

As this travel mug is made from metal, I thought this might be part of the problem. Stainless steel is fairly resonating. So I decided to try using a different travel mug. As we had just taken delivery of some new porcelain travel mugs, by Sagaform, I chose to use one of these.

Unfortunately, this didn’t solve the problem. I still have a rattling cup holder. But rather than a high pitched ‘ting ting’ my new porcelain mug makes a low grumble.
