which thermal mug?

Recommended Posts

howdy folks,


I leave for work early every day and am missing my morning cappa so need to get another thermal mug. The couple cheap ones that i bought leak and more importantly make the coffee taste horrible.


So which would be the best one to buy? Anyone got any good recommendations?


I searched and like the look of these two






anyone know if they are any good?

I use one myself and it doesn't affect the taste of the coffee at all!


sounds like we may have a winner. does it retain the heat well? also how is it with spillages? Dont suppose you know how fat it is at the bottom do you? lol i have a skinny cup holder you see. honest.

It fits in a standard car cup holder - retains heat pretty well (double walled plastic inside). It has a good lid which has the option to lock to prevent spillage (not TOTALLY leak proof if you really shake it about but pretty close!) I don't really use the 'tip and sip' thing with the lid - either 'sip' or 'lock' lets you use it like a normal mug.

appreciate your advice guys. I was tempted by your one coffeebean but not being totally leak proof disuaded me.


In the end i got the contigo cup. I must say it is top quality. It does not leak at all. I cannot comment on the heat retention too much as all the coffee goes within half hour. It is dishwasher safe and does not appear to taint the taste of the coffee at all.


It has a clever drinking dispenser. You push the button on the front and then drink through the opening. clever idea.
