Sometimes you need a little more
It goes without saying that after a sophisticated dinner you drink your ristretto from a tiny refined 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 a quiet moment: freshly brewed coffee with Sunday breakfast, white coffee with friends or a soothing Irish coffee before going to bed.
The most versatile cup in the cupboard
The low cup is for tea, the small cup is for espresso, and the mug is for... whatever you fancy. Mugs are the only items without specific demands. 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 almost always has space for a sweet squirt of cream or a shot of whisky as well – 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.
Quality you can hear
When it comes to large coffee mugs, we place great value on strong porcelain with high resistance to impact and chipping. Our experts use a modern process to produce the mugs from bright white Premium Porcelain or exclusive Premium Bone Porcelain. Both the porcelain and the decoration are protected with a special lead-free glaze, making them dishwasher-safe and allowing them and their contents to be heated in the microwave (except when decorated with platinum or gold). Ever said cheers with a mug of mulled wine? Then you can recognise the quality of the Villeroy & Boch porcelain mugs by their high ringing sound!
Big mugs are a big gift
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. Thanks to the colourful and creative motifs, 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 to create a potpourri of styles. Needless to say, you also have the option of (re)ordering mugs from specific collections in order to add to an existing set.
