I am so going to check out UPS.  This is insanity.  The one I just told you about in Jersey, is STILL in Jersey 2 days later.  ::)  >:(

<sigh>  Okay.  I'll keep an eye on it for you.  If it doesn't update in the next 2 days (by the 16th) I'll file a claim with USPS and send you another one through UPS.

I just signed up for email alerts on your mug & shirt.  I'll know the second there's an update and will PM you here on the forum.  :)

got mine yesterday and it's pretty much awesome. it made for a nice birthday gift (to myself). i love that the finish is baked enamel high-gloss black and not stainless. stainless is becoming a bit 'played' but the stainless band across the top is perfect. everything about this mug is obviously high quality and i'm really happy with it.

Thanks!!!

UPS is real hit or miss.
I had a package come from Texas once: It made it from Texas to Portland in a day. Then Portland to me, (about 200 miles), in a freakin week.

I am a bit slow..............got my mug a few days ago. Finally used it this morning, way cool is all I gotta say!

Great coffee, although a bit strong, apparently I thought I needed more little freshly ground beans than I really did! Love how the mug feels in the hand as well. Nice balance and weight. Quality product, but I would expect nothing less!!

I used to be an ebay powerseller. Once you start shipping enough through UPS if your using Paypal then they qualify you for really cheap shipping rates. I don't know what the threshold is, but the rates were much cheaper than the default rates I started out with.

I was shipping only like 30 packages a week and it took me only a few weeks to get the low rates.  UPS is much better to work with in my opinion and the tracking is very reliable.

Most times when I have used priority I don't get any tracking information online until my customer already received the package lol...

My mug was in the mail when I came home!

Now that I have it in my hand, I seriously prefer the black finish over another stainless steel mug. This thing looks cool. (I like the grip on it, too!)

I got to try mine4 out for the first time today ;D


It was gawd awful >:(

but then again I thing I may have used enough grounds for 3 or 4 cups.... so that one was one me :P

I Got it back down to a more reasonable level and results were much better. It'll have to do a little more fine tuning to make the perfect cup.

Great product...if you don't have one...why?

LOL!!  :D

ONE scoop, doc.  ONE.  Or, you can use 1-2 regular spoonfuls.  3 or so minutes later, plunge the puppy down.


Nerd.  ;D

And therein lies the problem.  NO! bad doc!  one tbsp = 1 scoop.

TBM - just wanted to let you know that your mugs were delivered a couple days ago!  :) :)

Hi there - yep they were waiting with a pile of mail when we got back from Sunny Cali.  Used them yesterday morning and they are nice. I wished I would have had them with me as I was desperate at one point for coffee in the long 20+ hour drive and that would have been so handy to have them along. Impressed with how long the coffee stayed hot.  Thanks again Sis for all the things you do for TSP - we love ya girl!  Blessings!

forgot to add DH noticed that when right handed folks drink from the mug the world gets to see the TSP logo (he has a strange and wonderful mind!)
