Anyone know where to find one of these sold singly,
or maybe in small (2/3/4) sets? The only place I can
find these (mostly restaurant supply stores) sell them
in sets of 12.

I had one printed with the name of a former employer.
It was given out during out new employee orientation.
That one has since been damaged. I remember Peet's
Coffee locations used to stock them until they were
sold off at closeout prices. I can find the clear glass
version at Bed Bath & Beyond for $2.50 each, but it's
not the same.

These are my ideal coffee mugs. I remember dropping
the contents of my "3 cup" Bodum press pot into that
mug which I then periodically stirred whenever the
sediment settled to the bottom.

That's actually the first place I looked. :-)

Now there's a thought. I guess storing a half-dozen isn't that bad
an idea. I know firsthand they do break and get scratched.

I went to a couple places and didn't find them individually, but here is
a suggestion.

Go to http://froogle.com and search for "Libbey Classic Cobalt Coffee Mugs "

On the right side of the page are a number of companies who may sell
small quantities.

Ebay has a few with decorations but not what you wanted.

If Target (or another company) sells only cases, email the store buyer
or a few stores and see if they have an partial lot. Perhaps they will
send you one.

If in the US and you have stores like Big Lots, Odd Lots, Ross, etc,
scour them too. Perhaps even stop into a store like Cost Plus/World
ket. You never know what you will find at these places.

Besides the search engines and mega search engines (like
Metacrawler.com) some other places may not be so obvious...

Post a request on Ebay's Want It Now
http://pages.ebay.com/help/specialtysites/questions/win_overview.html

Post it on Craigslist.org

Buy a case (perhaps with free shipping) and sell small lots on Ebay,
making enough to pay off your own cup in the process. If you cannot sell
enough that way, save 1 or two in case of an accident and put small bags
of coffee in each and send them as gifts.
