With cooler weather ahead, warm drinks will be welcome.
I am a coffee fan, and a bit of a coffee snob. I'm too good for convenience store coffee! ;)
I'd make my own at work, but I don't have a sink, so clean up is kind of a pain. I decided to get a "pour over" coffee dripper and make it at home before leaving. Easy clean up, and I could use great, local coffee. (Merlin's Coffee, right here in town.)
Problem? I tend to nurse my coffee for about two hours. How to keep it hot long enough?
Found a very positive review for this stainless mug online, and checking Amazon's reviews, it was well thought of.
I can see why. Made my first batch early in the morning over the weekend. 7 ½ hours later I checked the temperature, and it was still at 145º. (In fact, I needed to adjust my water heating point to a lower brewing temperature, or it would be too hot to drink a few hours later!)
I've shaken this thing around and can find no leaks or drips. (I've been called one, but we'll ignore that for now.) The lid snaps tight but is still easy to open without looking during a car ride. And want to carry it without fear of bumping the lid open? There's a sliding lock.
I've had cups and drink contraptions before where moving parts cause difficulty in cleanup, leading to some gross, unreachable areas. Not here. The lid comes apart in to four pieces, and quite easily. Probably ten seconds or less to disassemble.
I can't yet speak to longevity, but if you need a mug/thermos, check out the Zojirushi SM-SC60HM. It's not the cheapest you'll find, but you'll be pleased.
