What would the world look like without promotional coffee mugs indeed!. That a great question. You know there are plenty of things that we miss during this unfortunate Wuhan virus pandemic. One of the things that people miss the most is being able to get together with friends and just have a cup of coffee. Even getting together with your work colleagues for a cuppa is sorely missed. It is like a daily ritual that for the moment at least has been put on hold. Just like so many things in our lives it is something to yearn for in our quest for normality.
Drinking coffee is one of those social lubricants that gives people a chance to just sit down and talk. It lets them forget about their worries and just enjoy a nice hot beverage. There are other social activities that do the same thing but none that is so prolific across the world. Drinking coffee with other people is almost ingrain in our social consciousness. It is one of those things that, whilst you could in theory do with out, you really wouldn’t want to. If you look at communities that are coming out of look outs one of the first things they do is go to a coffee shop or cafe with friends.
When we especially drink coffee with our colleagues we usually use promotional mugs which have either been given to us from our suppliers as gifts, or branded mugs which have been printed by the company we work for. They are usually nice and big and good quality. Indeed if someone is going to give a person a mug as a gift then they make sure that it is good quality. There is no use giving someone a promotional coffee mug if it is not going to be good quality. That is what would explain why we have so many branded mugs in our cupboards.
So the answer to the question is that there is no answer to the question. As long as there are people on this planet there will be promotional coffee mugs. As long as there are people on this planet they will get together and drink coffee together.
