The Best Travel Mugs to Keep All Your Favorite Drinks Warm
The Best Travel Coffee Mugs Out There
"But first, coffee." The expression is everywhere these days, from ceramic mugs to blackboards outside coffee shops. But what if you don't have time to sit down and sip your morning joe before jumping into your day?
Let's be real: Most of us don't. And if you've ever spilled hot coffee all over the front seat—or worse, your white sweater—you know how crucial a sturdy, spill-proof travel mug can be. If you could use a little help getting out the door with your coffee and your sweater intact, these travel coffee mugs are clutch. And that's not even the best part: These picks will actually keep your coffee hot for a really long time. (Related: Is Coffee Good for You? Science Says Yes.)
Plus, you can feel good about buying all the ones on this list: Stash them in your purse, desk, and gym bag to use at your neighborhood coffee shop, knowing that they're both way sturdier and more eco-friendly than typical to-go cups. (Saving the world, one coffee cup at a time!)
Stanley Classic Vacuum Bottle
Taking your coffee on the road, on the trail, or to the office has never been more convenient. The OG brand for foolproof food gear, Stanley's classic vacuum bottle keeps a whopping 1.4 quarts of coffee warm and safe for whatever adventures your day may hold. This bottle features a locking handle, a twist-open stopper, and an insulated lid that doubles as an 8-oz cup. Yep, this thing has it all.
Hydro Flask Travel Coffee Mug
Easy to hold and pretty to look at, this 12-oz travel coffee mug prevents spills in style with its well-designed lid and double-wall insulation system. Hydro Flask's innovative design keeps your coffee warm—and prevents condensation—for up to six hours, so you can sip all morning long.
In Australia, a country obsessed with their "brekkie" café culture, coffee is kind of a big deal. That's why we trust this brand to create a solid to-go coffee cup. First created down-under in 2009, the KeepCup combines aesthetics with practicality to make one of the cutest travel mugs around. (Ex: Aussies also came up with glitter coffee. Enough said.)
Caffeine fiends will really appreciate this tumbler's mammoth 24-ozcapacity. Whether you like your java hot or iced, the triple-walled, vacuum-sealed stainless steel will keep it hot or cold for hours—making it perfect for a busy workday or an hours-long outdoor adventure. Plus, the sleek shape fits most car cup holders. (And, just sayin', it's perfect for keeping this spiked cold brew coffee cold. Save that for when you're not in the car, though!)
Unsurprisingly, the same brand that makes unbreakable phone cases also makes a crazy-durable coffee travel mug. This 20-oz tumbler is a favorite for outdoorsy activities, but it also makes a great choice for city-dwellers braving the urban jungle. Reviewers say it's a little heavy, but worth it for the insulation that truly keeps their coffee hot for hours.
JoCo Glass Reusable Coffee Cup
True, glass may not seem like the ideal material for a coffee mug. But this 16-oz cup uses lightweight borosilicate glass that won't crack or break when hot liquids are poured in. It comes in three sizes, and the sleeve and lid are available in a variety of fun colors. (You can also confuse people by filling it with clear coffee, which is actually a thing.)
OXO Good Grips Travel Mug
This travel mug has stood the test of time—it's traveled all over the country with one Shape writer for five years, and she's still using it on a near-daily basis. A simple click opens the lid so you can sip, and another click seals it shut to ensure no spills ruin your morning. Plus, the non-slip sleeve gives you a good grip when you're on the go.
Kinto Travel Tumbler
If your aesthetic is more minimalist than cutesy, this mug might be the one for you. It may not be the easiest to sip from, as there's a lid you must unscrew, but the functional design ensures it won't ever spill on your commute, in your car, or at your desk.
Asobu Tea Mug and Infuser
Not a coffee person? Tea lovers will appreciate this three-piece set that's essentially a teapot in a cup. Just place the stainless steel infuser basket in the cup, add tea (either loose-leaf or bags will work), add hot water, and cover. It's sturdier than you might think, reviewers say, and the lid also doubles as a holder for the infuser when you're ready to drink. (Plus, you can sip on your high horse, with all these health benefits of tea in mind.)
Yeti 18 oz. Rambler
Keep your coffee warm with the cooler brand that's mastered temperature control. This Yeti Rambler Bottle isn't sip-friendly, but it is toss-in-your-bag-with-your-laptop friendly. Seriously: This to-go bottle seals so tightly that you can put a thermos of hot coffee in the fridge overnight, and it'll be warm in the morning. (Bonus: It comes in all different colors.)
