Best Travel Coffee Mug Reviews

For coffee aficionados, choosing a travel coffee mug is no easy task! Once we have the perfect coffee, we want a way to not only take it with us wherever we go, but keep it hot (or cold if that’s what you prefer) until we are ready to enjoy it. Our travel coffee mug reviews look at all the important aspects of a well-designed travel mug, including leak and spill protection, temperature control, portability, and comfort. Not all mugs are created equal, so here we offer up the crème de la crème for you.

1. Contigo Autoseal West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug

I love this mug! It has a sleek and sexy, slightly curvaceous design, and comes in a wide array of colours. Not only does it look good, but it has a double wall, with stainless steel inside and out to ensure drinks stay at the temperatures they are supposed to. It is super simple to use one-handed, and the seal automatically reseals after every sip.

This mug will keep your drinks hot for four hours, or cold for up to twelve.

Pros:

  • Easy to clean.
  • 100% leak and spill proof.
  • 0.47 Litre volume

Cons:

  • The paint chips off easily on the coloured versions.

2. Bodum Vacuum Travel Coffee Mug

This mug is shiny stainless steel, with double walls for the best heat retention. It is available with a selection of different coloured rubber bands and lids, which are slip proof. The lid has a stopper to seal the opening. The non-slip bottom is handy, and the ergonomic design makes it easy and comfortable to hold. Coffee will stay hot for around three hours. This is a great mug for your morning commute, but not suited for popping in a bag, as is not 100% spill proof.

Pros:

  • Dishwasher safe.

Cons:

  • Not completely leak proof, will spill if not upright.

3. Kooyi Vacuum Insulated Travel Mug

Available in five attractive shades, this is a long, tall flask that holds 450mL of fluids. The double walled vacuum insulation system and stainless steel design will keep drinks hot or cold for long periods. Easy to operate with one hand, it also features a press button lid with an anti-hot sipping design, as well as a safety lock mechanism to prevent accidental pressing of the flip press button.

Pros:

  • 100% leak proof - guaranteed.
  • ​Easy to clean.
  • ​BPA free.
  • Fits into most cup holders.

Cons:

  • Despite website claims, hot drinks only stay piping hot for around two hours, then warmish for another few following that.

4. Bodum Travel Press Set Coffee Maker with Extra Lid

The ultimate portable indulgence for coffee lovers: a way to both make coffee AND keep it hot on the go. As with the Bodum mug at number two on our travel coffee mug reviews, the body is a standard colour, but lid and grip come in different hues. Great for camping, picnics or to take into the office. This press/mug will save you money, as you can make your own quality brew on the way into the office instead of stopping at a café.

Pros:

  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Lightweight.

Cons:

  • Coffee only stays hot for about 40-50 minutes.
  • Some leakage from the top if not upright.

5. One Click Cup Premium Travel Mug

A cross between a thermos and a travel mug, this vessel holds 250ml of liquid and comes with a leak proof guarantee. It has a stainless steel double wall, which keeps your coffee hot for two hours, or warm for four. A unique 360-degree lid means you can drink from any side of the cup, and the one-click to open makes for easy one-handed operation. Also comes in a larger size that holds 475 ml.

One Click Cup Premium Travel Mug

Pros:

  • 5-year guarantee
  • Fits into most drink holders.

Cons:

  • Only the lid is dishwasher safe.
  • There can be some issues with the steep angle required to drink the last remaining sips.

Conclusion

The search for the perfect travel mug is over. Our travel coffee mug reviews cover the top five available to you right now. With a huge variety of colours and styles to choose from, you just need to consider how spill proof you need it to be (is it going to be thrown in a bag or just sit in your cup holder?) and if you need your coffee to stay hot for the commute to work or for a day of hiking. It’s worth the extra money to invest in a good quality cup, because no doubt you’ve already invested money in creating a great coffee.
