Coffeehouse Token Mug



+ -

This seasonal edition, two-sided Coava coffee mug displays the front and backside of a custom Coava coffeehouse token. This limited release mug won't be around for long, so get yours now! 

This design is a nod to the historical coffeehouse keepers tokens of the 17th century which were used to barter and buy goods in local communities. Back in those times, bills and especially coins were very scarce. Coffeehouses, butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers all issued their own tokens. Without them, trade during that period would have been curtailed and the poor without coins. While gentry folk were able to operate on credit, traders' tokens enabled shop keepers to do business with everybody else.  

10 ounces and the perfect gift when paired with any of our coffees.
