Here’s A Basic Buyer’s Guide I Drew Up Just for You!

When buying a travel mug, here is a guide to help you identify the important features of a good travel mug:

Leak and Spill Protection – Find a travel mug that is leak and spill proof. Remember that you will use it for traveling. Expect that it will get knocked over and bumped at. You don’t want coffee spilling around your workstation, on your lap or on your seatmate’s shirt.

Easy-to-Open – Many buyers look for flip open or push-button lids so they can enjoy drinking from the travel mug with just one hand. Imagine if you would need to unscrew the lid, drink coffee and put the lid back. It’s such a hassle! So, opt for an easy-to-open travel mug.

Durability – Among plastic, glass and stainless travel mugs, the latter is always a runaway winner in terms of durability. Drops and accidents can happen. Choose a travel mug that is durable and sturdy, especially for every day commute.

Affordability – There are many affordable travel mugs. But if you can afford it, invest on a good travel mug that will last you for years. Choose something durable, automatic and large enough to provide at least 4 cups of coffee for you enjoyment.

Coffee Lid Mess Avoidance – Travel mugs can be a bit messy, leaving trails of coffee around the lid, with some even spilling on your favorite white shirt! Choose a travel mug with a nice lid that’s perfect for you. Some are just too wide, causing coffee to spill out from the corners of your mouth. Inspect the design of the lid. Some travel mugs have a beaker that’s a bit shallow, with a surrounding surface to collect coffee spillage. Others have a built-in sipper. But I can’t imagine using a straw for hot coffee.

Easy-to-Clean – Travel coffee mugs can be notorious when it comes to cleaning. Choose a model that is easy to hand wash. Having one that is dishwasher safe is also convenient. But since travel mugs are often brought to trips, you need a mug that is easy to wash manually.

Heat Retention – Who likes to drink cold coffee? Unless you intend to make an iced coffee, no one enjoys a hot coffee that has gone stale and cold. Choose a travel mug that has excellent heat retention. Keeping the coffee pleasantly hot for at least 3 hours is good enough. Some travel mugs can keep your coffee hot for 6 to 8 hours. It’s simply amazing!

Different Sizes of Travel Mugs

Travel mugs come in all sizes to suit the preferences of different types of people. Here is a rundown of the common travel mug sizes available:

  • 8 oz Travel Mugs – This is good for single serve coffee. It also fits well with single serve machines like Keurig and Nespresso
  • 12 oz Travel Mugs – This is the most common size of travel mugs. Portable enough to fit bags and car cup holders
  • 16 oz Travel Mugs – Good for people who loves drinking more coffee or want to share it with friends. It can hold 3 to 4 cups of coffee
  • 20 oz Travel Mugs – Considered as the largest in the group, it can yield up to 5 cups of coffee

These are the common sizes. But you also know that there are super large travel mugs that can hold up to 40 oz of coffee or more! I featured a few above but now I’d like to give you a bit of detail on a few select extra large options.
