I have been using my Cuppow! for a couple of months now with my Holdster and I think that the results are in on this one: BUY THIS THING. I feel like a rockstar when I walk into coffee shops with my ball jar handsomely wrapped in leather and shiny rivets and hand it over the counter to have them fill with some brown gold. When they get over the initial shock of how sweet my 'travel mug' is, I pop the Cuppow on and screw on the lid. I could be wearing 4" jean shorts and cowboy boots and be rocking a 3' long rat tail and I don't think that I'd get as much of a rise out of a barrista as this combination does. Seriously: Start drinking your coffee out of leather-wrapped glass with a Cuppow on top and everyone- especially coffee geeks- will like you. Period.

It's been a lot of work refining the Holdster line, but we think that you're going to love these little guys. We've been through lots of revisions to reach our final designs but it was worth the wait. We expect to complete the first run of hand-made Holdsters by the end of the week. Stand by for pictures of the process. As you can see, we've already opened some beers to celebrate!
