'I'd Rather Take Coffee Than Compliments Just Now' Coffee Lover Mug


This mug makes a brilliant gift for coffee lovers and features a relatable quote about coffee from the classic book, Little Women. 

“I’d rather take coffee than compliments just now.” 

Not only is it a great coffee lover gift, it’s a great book lover gift too. Perfect for fans of Little Women! There’s nothing better than an afternoon on the sofa with your favourite book and a delicious mug of coffee. 

Bold and simple, this mug was designed by our wonderful creative team and individually hand pressed at our studio. 

You can also add a packet of delicious artisan ground roasted coffee from our friends at Perkulatte for a small additional price. 

9.5cm (H) x 8.2cm (D) 10 Fl Oz.

Our mugs are dishwasher safe - to ensure your mug gets the best treatment and the colours stay bright for the longest time possible, we recommend hand-washing with occasional dishwasher use.

Just to let you know - the optional tea is free from all 14 of the main allergens. 

Our lovely friends in the EU might like to know that have managed to put measures in place to collect taxes at the point of checkout, so purchases from our Etsy store won't be subject to further fees on arrival in the EU. Not all of our products are on there because some are not eligible to be sold on Etsy but most are.
