I've owned more travel coffee mugs than I care to admit - most of them have ended up in the bin, which is ironic, since that is exactly why I bought a travel mug in the first place. My search for a great travel companion coffee mug has ended, and I am happy, very happy. It just works!
The Contigo West Loop v2 coffee travel mug is perfect. It does all of the following;
You'll pay about $30 in Australia for one of these, but that is great value when you consider the cost of all those travel mugs that don't perform. Pro-tip: get the stainless steel finish and not a coloured model if you'd prefer low maintenance - they are 100% dishwasher safe, where as the painted / coloured finish requires hand washing only.
The professional series milk jug, Europa by Metallurgica Motta oozed style and function when I first layed eyes on it in 2013. Promising creamier and silkier steamed milk for my flat whites and cappuccinos, how could I pass it up? So of course, I put aside the premium cost of about 3x the entry level and grabbed one - a small 350ml polished stainless steel version.
It wasnt long before I realised that while the 35cl 350ml jug was perfect for single coffees, I'd need something bigger for making two coffees at a time. That is when I bought a 500ml cl50 Matt Black teflon coated Motta. It looked wonderful when I first bought it, but after almost two years of daily use and abuse, the matt black exterior coating started to degrade (the inside teflon was still fine).
It was the perfect excuse to upgrade, again, this time opting for a bright orange 750ml 75cl Motta. I'd say its too big for everyday use, unless you are making 20 ounce drinks (large mugs), otherwise the cl50 (500ml) is just perfect.
