It's cute, but...

I realize this has a certain ironic quality -- it's a porcelain coffee cup with a silicone lid, designed to mimic the disposable cardboard cups commonly used for takeaway coffee. I'm just not certain why you'd want a very pedestrian form factor in a material that requires care that is unsuited for the planned use. I guess if you want to be snarky about your au lait -- "Look - it LOOKS like I'm being environmentally irresponsible, but actually my choice of drinking vessel is superior to yours" -- it works. But not so much for me.
