When the sun struggles to weakly rise above the horizon at 10 a.m. and sets at the stroke of 4 p.m. When every part of your body is either swaddled in wool or chapped and frozen. That, my friends, is when coffee is the only fuel capable of powering you through your day. This winter, I’ve been drinking all my beverages, from coffee to water to the occasional beer, exclusively out of some of the best travel mugs you can buy. Below are my top picks for vacuum-insulated, multi-purpose coffee and beverage mugs. They will all do a stellar job of keeping your joe piping hot (or freezing cold when the weather finally breaks)
01 THE BEST OVERALL
These are my new favorite everyday vacuum pints. They come in a set of two, and they stack for easy storage in your cupboard. The matte exterior is pleasant to hold, and the clear, sealed lid lets you see how much fluid is in the cup before you pour it all down your shirt front (you can also swap it out for a straw lid or Yeti’s lid with a sliding magnetic closure). It keeps coffee hot for the several hours I need to drink it before re-upping. Most importantly, it’s dishwasher-friendly, so you’re not constantly soaping up at the sink.
