Keith likes his Tea & Coffee in larger servings (after all he is a big strong guy and probably gets more thirsty than regular sized people) when you compare the size of his mugs to other mugs on the market you’ll soon realise that
- The Mini bucket mug’s sized like a standard mug
- The Standard bucket mug’s sized like a large mug
- The Large bucket mug’s sized like a giant mug
The above is worth taking into consideration before your purchase; you might imagine that a mini bucket mug’s like an espresso/lungo cup, it isn’t. You might think a standard bucket mug won’t be big enough if you like large hot beverages when in fact it probably will be while the large bucket mug might to well be too big for you. Read on to find the exact match for your preferences.
