Thanks!

And yeah, I think thats a good idea - picking one up everywhere you travel. Mugs can tell a lot.

Just got the silver one. So far so good. The search for the perfect travel mug is a difficult one

I've really been getting into this one for coffee (tea varies depending on type), generally go for individual pieces over sets with this sort of thing.

I've got a couple depending upon the size of cup I want to brew:

This is a mug not to be messed with, it's hefty!

My newest but only holds 10 oz, which means it's an 8 oz cup of coffe with a splash of cream.


Then I have one that looks very similar to this but has the name of the company I used to work for:

I don't drink coffee from huge mugs - I have double espressos, so I use a glass instead:



I have about 10 of those glasses, along with 2 of each type of coffee cup (espresso cups, medium size cups and capuccino cups). All of them Lavazza branded. They sit on the cup warmer on top of the coffee machine (see the espresso cups attached).

I used to have one of the medium size ones at my old work place and would go downstairs to the cafe and get them to make me a coffee in that cup. They didn't use Lavazza coffee and would hide the cup behind the counter!

You'd be shocked if I photographed the coffee grinder I use - it's a Gino Rossi CC45! I know, it's silly to use something like that in a home, but it works so well.

They look like espresso cups. But none could be worse than the Illy espresso cups for irritating handle designs - though Segafredo comes close with its otherwise cool looking square cups.

Ha ha! None can be worse than those 'pincher' handles though- you know, the ones where you can't hook a finger through so you have to squeeze real hard just to lift your cup!

Hey, props on the commitment to decent coffee- until I stand a chance of replicating the delicious flat white I get from my caff I'm keeping to filter. Do you have any thought on the stove top espresso makers? Cheers

There are a few Bialetti stove-top pots that claim to do a capuccino/latte style drink - Brikka or Mukka I think they call them. I'm not so sure how they work - and I've never tried one.

My machine above is a Gaggia Classic with the Italian Ulka pump (the better of the two, because it can be adjusted). And the grinder is Gino Rossi CC45 - which was actually cheaper than the little Mini Mazzer-E grinder. I modified the Gaggia to slightly reduce the pump pressure, previously it was too difficult to get consistent results. I've got it set to a point where it and the grinder are matched well together. When I do have to clean the grinder, I put the heads back in it until they touch, then wind them back two notches and that's set correctly.

As you might guess, I'm addicted to coffee - to the point where I get a headache if I don't drink coffee in the morning.

Pincher handles - yeah, that sounds like Illy and Segafredo:

Make sure you are sitting down properly before looking at the prices.

And these are the Segafredo ones:
http://www.coffeemachine.net.au/acce...segafredo.html

Pretty cheap for what they are - they are quite solid and heavy.

Living in Colorado it's an arid climate so a regular coffee mug keeps the contents hot for all of 5-10 minutes and then it's cool (seriously). Here a vacuum double insulated mug is the only way to go. No, not one of those trendy double insulated glass mugs as they don't work at all.

The best, and I mean by a wide margin, is the Thermos Sipp line. I've got the 16oz stainless steel one with a handle but they come without as well and in white. You can tip it upside down and it won't leak when the stopper is closed (push button). When it's open you can drink from any side (360). The top also comes fully apart for cleaning and it's top drawer dishwasher safe (if it'll fit, it's pretty tall). There's also an integrated tea hook if you like bagged or infused tea.

Where it really shines is keeping contents either hot or cold. If hot then it'll keep it at burning temp for at least an hour (I've actually burned myself an hour after I put it in the mug) and then keep it warm for at least 6-8 hours.

I've yet to test out it keeping things cold but from Amazon reviewers it can keep things cold for 24 hours. One reviewer even claimed that it can keep an ice cube for 2 hours.
