I purchased this mug with great expectation, and I was not let down. It’s a high quality stoneware with a nice glaze. The mug also has a lot of weight to it. It feels substantial. I was surprised. The logo is raised, and protrudes away from the mug it self. This is now my best mug. My wife doesn’t get the “Hate & Discontent”, but that’s ok. I didn’t buy it for her. Her coffee is too weak and fufu for this mug anyhow.
