Anchor Coffee Roasters presents Mug Madness: THE CHAMPIONSHIP

Anchor Coffee Roasters presents Mug Madness: THE CHAMPIONSHIP

The Mug Madness Championship is here! 

We are down to the final competitors.  The final four was tight with JPJ suffering getting edged out in both competitions. We have two great quotes remaining. Vote for your favorites in the comments or on our Facebook page. 

A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for” -John A. Shedd 

VS. 

“Damn the torpedoes, Full speed ahead!” David Farragut

Round 3: THE FINAL FOUR! 

And just then there were four. Our old sailors have found their way to the top of the field. It wasn't easy, especially for JPJ who had a close call in last round. But he's got two good quotes in the final four (one might be a paraphrase of his actual language but it captures his sentiment). 

So this is the critical question: How do you want to start your morning? That Anchor Coffee Roasters mug should be one of the first things you see. Who will be your muse, your compass, your inspiration? 

Vote in the comments below or on our Facebook Page.  Voting ends Tuesday the 15th.
