Recently I set up a post called "tell of your "to-go" cup frustrations and I would first like to thank everybody who replied. You were a huge asset to our design group. Anyway, I was wondering what you would create if you were to design a new coffee cup. What changes would you make in order to correct you're frustrations with the current "to-go" cups? We only have five people in our group and have come up with some pretty good ideas I believe. But we decided it would be best to get fresh ideas, especially from those who love coffee. Secondly, if a shop upped its prices by about 40 cents and provided a travel/commuter cup instead of a to-go cup and then gave a 60 cent discount everytime you reused it to buy their coffee, would you imlement this travel cup idea? Your opinions are greatly appreciated! Thank you Ross

So there you have it - we want an insulated, ceramic lined, 4oz, thermally insulated, reuseable mug with some sort of lid. It would either have to fit a car cup holder or come with a cup holder that could be attached to a dashboard.
I haven't seen those, but that is similar to what I was thinking. Although, on second thought, if there is going to be a styro lining, why not just use a completely styro cup? What is gained by having the paper exterior? I guess its easier to print the name of the coffee shop on paper?
