It’s culture thing, but many of us in the US do not enjoy swallowing any beverage at room temperature. Steaming hot or ice cold, sure, but when the drink is left out for too long, it starts to approach the dreaded 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Fortunately, you can combat lukewarm drinks with a double- or triple-walled container and a vacuum. Then every trip, trip to the beach and long day at the office will at least be accompanied by a constant supply of drinks at the right temperature.
From coffee to iced water, tea to beer, we sipped and sipped all of our drinks from the best insulated drink containers we could find. Below are our top picks for vacuum-insulated, multi-purpose coffee and beverage mugs. All will do a great job keeping your Joe warm—or ice cold.
