7 Coffee Mugs With Big Handles Because Who Wants a Small Handle?

The best kind of coffee mug is one with a handle that does not block your hand.

Originally Published: 

Most coffee mugs have handles that are way too small. Sure, they’re fine if you want to grasp the handle from the outside, but the better way to hold a cup of coffee is by sliding your fingers inside the handle and cradling the coffee cup itself. Or at least have the opportunity to do that because hey, sometimes we feel like grabbing the handle and sometimes we want to give the mug some love. It’s a petty thing, but we drink coffee everyday, so it’s worth it to have the right mug for the job. If you, too, want this feeling, here are seven excellent mugs that have handles that are big enough to fit your fingers.
