The traveling coffee mug is designed for the coffee drinker who wants to avoid accidental spills. Traveling coffee mugs are usually manufactured with a combination of metal and plastics with insulation to keep the heat in the coffee mugs longer. Oftentimes, the inside of the coffee mug is made of plastic material while the outer cup is made from stainless steel. The lid could be made with a drinking spout, but typically coffee is sipped from a hole in the lid to prevent spills. This type of coffee mug is great while driving, drinking coffee on the job and for transporting liquids. This coffee mug closely resembles a vacuum flask.
While the traveling mug is also great for outdoor activities, another more traditional type of coffee mug can be used as well. These types of mugs are made of tin. Tin mugs, though reminiscent of old campfires and the great outdoors, are gradually becoming an option in place of the more versatile traveling mugs.
Mugs can also be decorative. Ornamental mugs come in different shapes and sizes that, aside from being a functional coffee mug, are also used to hold things and for decorative purposes.
There is also the puzzle mug. Puzzle mugs are novelty mugs that require manipulation and intuitiveness to drink from. Normally, there is a hidden method of drinking from these mugs but it is made with fun in mind.
Coffee mugs are great ways to enjoy your coffee, especially if you are a coffee lover. The quantity of coffee they can hold can be as much as 20 ounces.
