The NYT Magazine has a great little story on the origins of the Mason Jar.
Domestica has pint Mason Jars plus a new little contraption - Cuppow - that turns your basic cool Mason Jar into an awesome iced coffee* transporter. 100% recyclable + BPA free, Cuppow's perfect for:
* Business People
* Deck Sittin'
* Horseshoe Tournaments
The Cuppow! + Mason Jar ensemble will only only set you back $12, so you can afford to give + get!**
* I'm a huge Toddy fan for making iced coffee syrup, but lately, I've been toting along Medaglia D'Oro Instant Espresso. Usually used for baking, it's so easy to add it to water + ice, shake in your jar, then switch out the lid for a Cuppow. Tastes, SO good, too - esp. if you happen to have some half + half in your glove box or something.
** They're not quite here, but we'll soon also carry Greyslater's Field Jackets: hand-sewn waxed cotton cozies so you don't burn your hands holding hot drinks + cold drinks won't slip right outta your hands. A Cuppow, Cozie, Jar ensemble retails for $24 - a great price for a great gift!
