The 10 Ounce Travel Mug: Short Enough For One-Cup Coffee Machines

By | June 28, 2017

I’m sure you love the idea of having a short insulated mug that sits directly under your single serve coffee maker.

I do to!

The problem with a lot of the best travel mugs these days is that they are simply too large to use at home. You have to remove drip trays to use them with a Keurig and they are just too big for sipping on coffee at home comfortably.

Luckily there are more options than ever before in the small travel mug market. Here on the site I’ve got a lot of options listed below – each of them are 10 oz.

Here are my Favorite 10 oz Travel Mugs

If you have a single cup coffee maker then it’s worth investing in a good Keurig sized travel mug.

What do you Use a 10oz Tumbler For Anyway?

Most 1-cup coffee machines make only 6-10 ounces of coffee at a time. This is perfect for a normal sized coffee cup but way to small for the most common travel coffee mugs sold today. Average size travel mugs typically span anywhere from 14oz all the way up to 24 oz with many even larger than that.

Unless you like drinking your coffee really quickly a small travel mug can help keep your coffee at an ideal drinking temperature for longer while also minimizing the potential for spills in the car or at the office. In fact just using your cup around the house you’ll find that these are nowhere near as likely to get tipped over because they are so short. Unlike the taller top heavy tumblers these tend to be short and stocky.

Also, if you are shopping for something to use in the home you may also want to consider a double walled espresso cup or a stainless steel coffee cup. They aren’t great for travel but they are great for a desk or kitchen table.
