Finding the right reusable coffee cup can feel as personal as your coffee order. Are you simply wanting a reliable to-go cup or are you a slow sipper needing a cup that maintains a drink’s temperature? The best reusable coffee cups not only help eliminate waste but can also improve your drinking experience. Plus, some coffee shops even offer a discount for bringing in a reusable coffee cup as part of a lower-waste initiatives.
Cups designed to resemble disposable coffee cups are usually made of tempered glass or plastic, but there are even food-grade silicone options for those who want something ultra lightweight, and ceramic options for those who want the purest taste. Some cups include built-in sleeves for a more comfortable grip on hot drinks, but they aren’t designed to keep coffee hot (or cold) for hours. For that, you need a stainless steel travel mug that comes equipped with double walls (or even triple walls) for insulation.
A reusable coffee cup with a smartly designed lid is ideal for preventing spills or leaks on the go, as well as keeping coffee at the intended temperature. Some lids have sliders to protect against splashing while some tumbler-style cups come with straws that are perfect for iced coffee drinks.
Most reusable coffee cups hold 8 to 20 ounces. Iced coffee or cold brew drinkers may prefer a larger cup to account for the ice. And one of my picks is even collapsible so you can even keep it in your pocket, if you so desire.
