Purchasing a travel coffee mug doesn’t have to be a frustrating experience. Getting a handle on just a few facts will vastly increase your chances of picking the perfect mug on the first try. Let’s get this item crossed off your camping checklist!
What is most important to you — temperature retention, stylish design, durability, getting to work without spilling coffee, or tea, on you clothes? Or something else entirely? Only you know the answer; whatever it is, use that as the starting point.
For example, say durability is more important to you than style. Then check out some stainless steel travel mugs.
And if temperature retention is your next priority, narrow that list to double-walled, vacuum-insulated stainless steel mugs. Focus in on the lids; look for one that has a closable spout so heat is less likely to escape.
Even if your first priority is fashion, these days it’s easy to look stylish with your favorite hot beverage in tow. There’s a wide range of artistic designs and trendy colors being used by mug designers.
Many of these travel coffee mug creations, depending on what material they’re made of, won’t leave you holding a cold beverage when you started out with a steaming hot one.
If you’ve broken your previous travel coffee mug and must have a replacement ASAP, check out your nearby chain-owned mini-mart. Failing that, your nearest super-center should have travel mugs.
The selection, however, will be limited. If time isn’t a factor, shop around. There’s a wide variety of travel mugs available online, ranging from less than $5 to about $30. Some websites offer free shipping; be sure to check return policies before purchasing your new travel coffee mug.
There’s no reason to become overwhelmed when trying to find the perfect travel coffee mug. It’s just a matter of priorities. And, of course, having a stress-free coffee drinking experience.
