Having ordered one of the new mugs, it has arrived safely and was extremely well wrapped, now I have to decide whether to put it to good use and have a coffee ☕ or leave it on display 😎

It's customery to try it with a beverage and post a picture up to prove it's compatible. Tea, coffee, champagne and single-malt scotch whiskey - they need a thorough test.

You should have bought 2 and kept one for display use only. Just like R8s themselves :-)

Glad you're happy with the mug. Recommendations are appreciated!

I've started the in-use testing. First up is a frothy coffee. For the connoisseurs amongst you, I buy Illy coffee that I make as a latte - about 70% milk microwaved and frothed by hand in the cup, then add a double espresso made in a cafetière.

Everything seemed to work as expected and the coffee tasted great. I consider this a "PASS" for strong, non-alcoholic beverages.

In coming days, I shall be adding alcohol in the form of Baileys in increasing concentrations up to 50% by volume, to see if it copes as well under those test conditions.

Are you sure that is frothy coffee, it looks like mayonnaise from a blown head gasket!
