There’s no hard and fast rule and definitions vary, but one way to make the distinction between a travel mug or travel cup and a reusable coffee cup is that a travel mug is insulated and designed to keep your coffee hot for longer periods, whereas a reusable coffee cup is designed simply to be a practical replacement for single use coffee cups.

Of course, there’s plenty of overlap and many of the travel coffee mugs we sell are insulated but have a reusable coffee cup style lid so really they fit into both categories.

Keep your coffee hot

Ok so a disposable cup doesn’t keep your coffee hot, but there’s nothing worse than drinking cold coffee especially when you’ve handed over your hard earned cash in a coffee shop.

If you are buying a reusable coffee cup for your favourite hot drink why not choose a reusable mug that’s insulated keeping your coffee hot for longer and protecting your hands while you drink.

For a stylish practical option that will keep your coffee hot to the last drop, we love the FOSH Social Beaker and the Chilly’s Coffee Cup.

Both these reusable coffee mugs are made from high-quality vacuum insulated stainless steel so they are easy to clean, keep your coffee hot and your hands cool. They come in a great range of colours and designs and Chilly’s coffee cups come in three sizes.

Klean Kanteen, a great eco-friendly and socially responsible company that bought the first stainless steel bottle for person hydration to the market also make fantastic insulated tumblers that are perfect for hot or cold drinks.

Leak proof

If you’re looking for reusable coffee cups with leak-proof lids that you can throw in your bag, or not worry about spilling coffee on yourself while you run for the train on your daily commute, then we love the rCUP® and the Klean Kanteen Cafe Cap.

The innovative rCUP® has the look and feel of a classic reusable coffee cup but with some really great design features that you won’t find elsewhere.

Firstly unlike most reusable coffee cups, it’s leakproof. The brilliantly effective push to lock mechanism allows for one-handed operation and 360˚ drinking which is perfect when you’re on the go. Easy access drinking without the risk of leaks.

Plus this is the first reusable coffee cup on the market that’s made from recycled cups. The 12oz version is made from 6 single-use cups and will save a lot more from landfill over its 10 years plus lifetime.

They are the perfect size for coffee shops, most of which will give you a discount if you bring your own reusable cup. And they are well insulated to keep your coffee hot for longer.

The Klean Kanteen cafe cap is another revolutionary product that provides easy drinking on the go whilst at the same time being totally leak free when closed.

Klean Kanteens Climate Lock vacuum insulation is fabulous at keeping your drinks hot with the 12oz version keeping drinks HOT for 8 hours and the 20oz version providing an impressive 14 hours HOT and 48 hours ICED.

Dishwasher safe

Although most of our insulated travel mugs are recommended hand wash only that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great reusable coffee cups that are dishwasher safe

The U Konserve stainless steel insulated tumbler is a gorgeous dishwasher safe reusable coffee cup with a BPA free plastic lid, a silicone seal, and a drinking hole that’s big enough for a reusable straw making it perfect for cold drinks as well as coffee.

The super eco-friendly rCUP® is perfectly happy to go in the dishwasher, which makes cleaning the push to lock lid a lot easier.

And the fabulous Huskup made from rice husks, with silicone lids and sleeves, is another super eco-friendly reusable coffee cup that can go in the dishwasher or the microwave, contains no nasties and is perfect for coffee shops.
