    the contigo auto seal mug. lol, laugh all you want. my uncle actually was on the design team that came up with the original along with some other products for starbucks. virtually spillproof, it holds coffee hot for hours. i keep the lid off of it for like 30min if i can so i can actually drink the coffee. when i go to school, i pour my coffee in it at like 730 am, by the time i drink it around 10 oclock, its perfect. i think i bought like 5 of these things last year.

    I have a Tim Hortons every 1,000 feet so no need to worry about the coffee going cold.

    they are on the higher side for a coffee mug, but my uncle got us about 3 of em for free, then i bought another 3 more from Kohls for like 15bucks iirc.

    these things take a beating, my fathers mug has fallen off of 25ft high scaffolding a few times, hitting a couple rungs on the way down, it still works perfectly, and he uses it, dents, scratches and all.

    ive had these things roll, or pop out of cup holders and onto the floor and NO spilling!

    they are double walled stainless.

    Thats a cool idea. Does it keep drinks cold at the same time if you put something like orange juice in it?

    ive never put anything cold in it, but im assuming the insulating principle would work either way. if you put hot water in the mug and let it sit for 5 min, then put your coffee in there, you could get away with it staying hot even longer.

    coffee from places just never compares with home brewed. I drink starbucks b/c of the convenience, but if i had to choose between a homebrewed coffee and starbucks or any other place, ill pick the homebrew. we mix grounds from a few different coffees to get a unique flavor.


    nothing beats panera breads breakfast sandwich, the first time i had one was a revelation...

    got that right, costs you time too, all those bathroom breaks!!! you cant win either way, stop often, or hold it and stop less often, but then your refilling the toilet for like 10 min.

    we have a dunkin doughnuts or a Starbucks every 10 mins around here, but even so, I have heated beverage holders in my truck. I don't drink coffee, but its great for other hot beverages, keeps things nice and hot.
