Your morning just got a little cuter with Pantone’s line of swatch-inspired coffee cups. With a range of vivid hues and shades of espresso, they’re perfect for hardcore designers who crave a dose of design in the morning.

I’d really be swooning if they were available in every Pantone color. It won’t happen soon, but I can still dream, right?

    Remember to replace your Pantone coffee cups every 2 years as the taste of your coffee will fade and potentially inaccurate over time.

    Not for me. But I can see how anyone into design would love them. They also look like they’d fit much better with some d├ęcor than others.

    @bryan Aint that the truth. Also some paints like Devine seem to get updated at least that often. We learned that the hard way in a recent kitchen remodel.

    The perfect thing for a small office.

    Don’t know if the cups are for me… but I must say that I’d be scared to be doing colour management pre-press services on that project. lol!
