This is simply the best thermal travel mug I have ever owned. It’s from Starbucks, and it really, REALLY keeps your drink hot. I hate lukewarm coffee, so this is a good thing for me. It keeps things so hot that, if I know I want to start drinking it right away while I’m driving, I pour the coffee in 5 minutes before I leave, and don’t put the lid on until I’m going out the door. It also seals super well, although I have had a couple of small leaks when I filled it too full and then tipped it as I was carrying it (with 12 other things) on the way to the car. Never big spills though. Finally, it cleans up super-easily. It’s insulated stainless steel, so I always wash by hand, but the lid is all one piece and doesn’t have all the annoying grooves, nooks and crannies that are so hard to get to and wash in many travel mugs.
If you’re looking for a new travel mug for yourself, or a great gift idea for a special someone, this gets 8 stars out of 5 from me!
