The world depends on us and how we take care of it. Using disposable plastic things, such as cups, mugs, and plates, might seem like the easiest way to carry food, but it is not at all environment-friendly. Therefore, we should use reusable travel coffee mugs when trying to save money and the ecosystem. And guess what? Many coffee shops also offer you a little discount for bringing your own coffee mug.

On the other hand, if you like making your java at home and taking it to work, there is no better alternative to a travel coffee mug. To help you decide better, I have gathered some of the best travel coffee mugs that you can check out:

YETI Rambler 20oz Tumbler

YETI Rambler 20oz Tumbler

This tumbler by Yeti is everyone’s favorite, especially ramblers’. What I like the most about this travel coffee mug is that it uses the power of magnets to keep your coffee or favorite drink locked well. Moreover, they are BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and have an excellent no-sweat design that ensures your hands stay dry.

Make your coffee drink in the morning, pour it in this mug, and it will remain piping hot and safe into the afternoon when you need it badly at work.

If you are picky when choosing coffee at the java shop, you will surely find it hard to opt for a travel coffee mug. Everything has a specialty, and Kinto travel tumblers are no exception. They come in neutral shades with excellent insulation that keeps coffee or tea piping hot for six hours.

It has a capacity of 350ml. The only thing that bothers me is that it is not dishwasher safe.

Contigo Autoseal West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug

I am a coffee lover, but what I hate the most is coffee stains when it spills while I am on the bus or in the car. But with this Contigo stainless steel travel mug, you don’t have to worry about spilling your favorite coffee because its lids are sealed. This 16oz reusable coffee canteen can keep your coffee or tea safe and piping hot for hours.

Furthermore, it has a sleek and slim design, which easily fits in a car cup holder. Also, the bumpiest of rides won’t do any harm to your morning brew.

Made of leak-proof BPA-free silicone, this travel coffee cup collapses to just 2.5 inches thick, which means you can put it anywhere without worrying about adding bulk to your bag.

S’well Stainless Steel Tumbler

This travel coffee mug is looking pretty, huh? Well, it is not just beautiful and functional but also comes in a variety of amazing shades and colors to choose from according to your choice. S’well stainless steel tumbler is an 18oz mug made from stainless steel and triple-walled with insulation. You can use this gorgeous cup around your house, and just when you need to carry it outside, you have to purchase the lid separately, which is a bit of a letdown.

Thermos Stainless King 16 Ounce Travel Mug

Thermos Stainless King Travel Mug

This stainless steel travel mug by Thermos is equipped with the best insulation technology that keeps your morning brew hot for up to 7 hours and liquids cold for up to 18 hours. It has a sturdy stainless steel interior and exterior that is dishwasher safe and highly functional.

Even if there is piping hot liquid inside this travel mug, it will stay cool to the touch. Unlike all the travel coffee mugs we have mentioned above, this one has a built-in tea hook that holds your tea bags or most loose-leaf infusers.

Things to Look For in a Travel Coffee Mug

  • Insulation

Regardless of the material, a mug is made of, if you want your drink to stay hot or cold for a long time, ensure it is insulated well.

  • Lid

Some lids on the travel coffee mugs are designed to be more spill-proof and leak-proof compared to others. This means you can easily toss it in your bag without worrying about spilling. Therefore, you should make sure the mug you are interested in comes with a secure lid.

  • Washability

Washing dishes by hand in winter is the least likely thing a human being might want to do. Although you cannot dump all your things in the dishwasher, make sure your travel coffee mug can go inside it without any problem. Hence, get yourself a dishwasher-safe travel mug.

However, if it needs to be washed by hand, thoroughly clean it with a sponge, or use a bottle brush.
