Coffee Mugs

For many of us, coffee is a constant companion. Once you put down your around-the-house funny coffee mug, you’ll want to switch to a trusty travel mug as you head out the door. Whether you prefer a piping hot cup from your drip coffee maker or single-serve coffeemaker, a refill at Starbucks or a dose of joe from your cold brew coffee maker, your travel coffee mug should handle it all, temperature included — and do it without leaking. Fortunately, there’s tons of options out there, including stainless steel travel mugs to keep your beverages cool and ones with straws for easy sipping. (Plus, this holiday season, you can score discounts on many of the picks ahead thanks to early Black Friday deals.)

A trusty travel mug is a must-have for those who are always on the go. Not having to stop for a drink, whether it’s coffee, iced tea, or water, saves you time and money, and it cuts down on paper and plastic waste.

We listed some of our favorite options below, all of which were reviewed by our expert food writers and product testers. They put the mugs through a series of trials over several days—carrying them around in a bag, seeing if they fit in car cupholders, assessing their temperature retention—and then rated each one on its size, design, insulation, and overall value.
