Over a decade ago, our marketing director stumbled upon a Tumblr account created by Karl Pearson-Cater. Every Monday morning, he posted a photo of his own mug and the coffee mug he was drinking from including the story behind it. We reached out to Karl back then and offered up some complimentary bags of Peace Coffee to thank him for his commitment to shining a light on the unique place coffee mugs we have in our morning routine. Karl graciously accepted our offer and has since become a loyal customer and friend. And he’s even started making his own mugs!
His enthusiasm for coffee mugs is contagious, and we hope you’ll join in on #MugshotMonday by sharing the stories behind your favorite mugs as many of us are spending more quality time with them! We want to see the motivational quotes, images of national parks, quirky vintage mugs acquired from grandparents or a local thrift store, and everything in between.
