We write a lot about products for babies and children on this page, but sometimes us parents need cool things in our lives, too! Since college, I’ve gone through MANY travel coffee mugs, mostly unimpressed with each purchase. They don’t keep my coffee hot, spill, break, don’t hold up in the dishwasher… the list is endless.
Finally. I’ve finally found the holy grail of coffee cups.
I recently purchased a two-pack of Contingo travel mugs. (Two will run you right around $30.00.) They come in all sorts of colors and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: great user ratings. People are serious about their coffee, so you’d better believe they’re serious about how they store their coffee when on the go.
I work 25 hours at my job per week, run a small wedding photography business, and write and work for BurritoBuzz. I’m on the move, always. And while I’m trying to wean myself from drinking so much caffeine, I still need my morning cup of java. Most mornings are so chaotic that I’m lucky if I dried my hair fully, so I definitely need to be able to grab my coffee and go… and I need it to be a secure cup, because I’m often carrying my purse, a diaper bag, and a 10 month old. I don’t want coffee spilling all over my leased car (that’s the stuff nightmares are made of.)
This cup is great: It’s slim enough to fit anywhere, and still holds a decent amount of coffee. It stays warm. The lid screws on, and to drink you just push in on a button to open the spout (and you do this WITH your drinking hand, so it’s not a difficult design that you need two hands to utilize.)
Dishwasher safe. BPA free. Double-wall construction to reduce condensation. Love it, and I definitely recommend it to anyone, especially parents, that need their coffee to function.
