The baristas at the Target Redlands branch of Starbucks got into the Pokémon Go fun in a big way with a wide array of Pokémon-themed drinks. As you’ll see in the pictures below it looks like these baristas are Harry Potter fans as well. I’m beginning to think that this might be the funnest Starbucks location of them all.

Equipped with space for 20 oz of joe, this mug will display two different images depending on temperature. When cold, it will feature red supergiant V838 Monocerotis, which is 20,000 light years from Earth on the edge of the Milky Way. When warm, a light echo of the star’s stellar outburst will appear.
The images featured on the mug were captured by the Hubble telescope in December 2002. It was revealed that V838 Monocerotis was 600,000 times brighter than the sun at its peak. However, simultaneously handling coffee and a significant astronomical event has its limits, and it this case that means the mug can’t enter the microwave or dishwasher.

Although Goat Story designed this unique horn mug a tribute to a flock of goats that accidentally discovered coffee, it also bears the appearance of a powder/drinking horn, which will help present your morning joe as ammo for the day. The Goat Story Mug started as a Kickstarter project, and we’ve featured it in the past from overseas retailers, but this is the first time it has been made available in the U.S. on Amazon.
The 16oz mug is available in black and white and can easily transform into a stand for placement on flat surfaces. It also includes a set of two straps that is said to make on-the-go transport “a blast”. Check out additional pics below. [click to continue…]
The Off To The Races Coffeemaker combines a racing helmet with a drip coffee machine and a heaping helping of wordplay.
The device will reportedly help you “start your engine” with “high-octane fuel” that will eliminate the need for “AM pit-stops” while heading for the “commuting checkered flag”. It will also force you to repeatedly explain to guests why you keep a helmet on your kitchen counter. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Woah…WOAH! Hold up there. Only authorized personnel are allowed to operate this highly advanced “Beverage Containment System” (BCS). There’s all kinds of secret technology built into this thing, so it requires a high-level security clearance. I mean, the Starfleet insignia is in gold holographic print. Do you even know what it is capable of? DO YOU? Just prey you never find out.

Molded mugs have been getting crazier and crazier, but the upcoming 20oz Goku mug really takes the cake. I mean—just look at it.
I hope you like a little blood in your coffee because that hair looks like it will shred your face to bejeezus and back. This might be a safer option.

Old school Disney attractions posters are all wonderful pieces of vintage art. Everyone has their favorite—mine, for instance, is the classic Haunted Mansion poster.
Well, some of these posters got a Star Wars makeover for mugs. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]
Vegan café Matcha Mylkbar in Melbourne, Australia is offering a blue latte which has been appropriately dubbed the “Smurf Latte”.
The drink contains lemon, ginger agave and coconut milk, and gets its hue from a teaspoon of something called E3 live blue algae powder – whatever that is.
The taste has been described as quite sweet and “soury”, although it’s difficult to pin down because everyone seems to describe it differently.
Even though the Smurf Latte is not officially on the cafe’s menu, the social media attention has resulted in loads of orders. That’s not surprising since it’s a proven fact that changing the color of food is a surefire way to draw attention.
