The Best Coffee Mugs – Our Favorites

So let’s head over to my amazing coffee mugs collection. We’ll start first with some feature-packed mugs followed by insulated mugs and then the ceramic or porcelain.

1. EMBER Temperature Control Mug

Ever wanted a smart companion for coffee? Ember has made one for you. It’s a smart coffee cup that automatically activates when senses some movement or liquid and goes to sleep mode when it’s empty. It keeps your coffee hot for around 1.5 hours with its built-in battery. It can even keep your coffee hot for the whole day if kept on its charging coaster, but that would not be right to drink a coffee so old.

Things To Consider When Buying A Coffee Mug

Whenever we are onto buying something, there are certain aspects to consider before picking or finalizing. The coffee mug is a small thing, but there are few aspects I look in for –

Heat Retention

A coffee mug should have the capacity to keep your coffee for some time. Many people sip coffee to spend some good time with friends or sometimes with themselves. So if you are a person with patience and who enjoys coffee really, this aspect should not be neglected.

Material

Which material is the mug made up of is one of the most important things to look for. The Glass Mugs are the most common ones and are non-porous, which means they won’t retain or sip some flavors from your coffee. They are also microwavable, so we can reheat without transferring into some other thing.

The next is Steel Mugs, which is again one of the most used forms and are non-porous. They are able to keep your coffee hot for a longer span and are the most durable ones. But, steel mugs are not microwavable so you have to transfer the coffee to another for reheat.

The next material is Ceramic, it’s not durable and is porous, so it’s going to eat some of your taste profile, not much but some. With porous we mean that they can retain flavors from your older drink, so one should use these mugs for a single drink. These are mostly microwavable and come in many fancy designs to keep you attracted.

The last one on our list is plastic, which I mostly avoid due to confusing science about ABS. Some say avoid even if it’s ABS and some say ABS is safe. Anyways, it’s a durable and lightweight material but doesn’t use it in microwaves.

Size

Another important aspect is size. How much coffee do you drink usually at one go? Ask yourself about these and it’s a very simple one to judge. If you are buying a mug for travel, I suggest going with a coffee thermos which is made for that purpose. They are usually tall, a little large than usual, and can slip into most of the pockets.

Usually, mugs come in the size of 12 oz, 16 oz, or 24 oz and the middleman is most common, that is 16 oz. 24 oz is for people with a deep love for coffee.

Comfortable Handle or Grip

To hold the mug comfortably, this is another useful aspect. If you won’t be able to hold the mug correctly, how are you going to enjoy the time?

Weight

If the mug is too heavy, you won’t be able to hold it for long. We sometimes drink coffee standing on the balcony where there is nothing to keep the mug aside. In that case, we have to hold it for a long and so, it should be an ideal weight.

Durability

This is the least factor I consider. A ceramic mug can never be durable but these are the most common material. If you are a travelholic person, then you must consider some other material so that it lasts longer and doesn’t break on the way.

And of course, the Looks!

Obviously to feel good and make others jealous. A good mug is pampered and sipping coffee feels a lot good whenever someone says – Nice Mug Babe!

People are often confused when they are searching for a mug for travel purposes – instead, they should search for a Travel Thermos as they come with insulating features and many sizes to suit your purposes.

FAQs

Do ceramic mugs break easily?

Well, many of these will break easily like if they fell down. Few of these are stronger but still, ceramic is prone to break easily as compared to other materials.

What is the difference between Porcelain and Ceramic?

The main difference between both is Ceramic is the major category and Porcelain is one of them. The ceramic mugs can be anyone as pottery, stoneware, earthenware, or porcelain. The porcelain actually differs from other categories because of the process and material.  They are made from kaolin clay which is processed at 2600 Fahrenheit. The porcelain mugs are usually thin-walled, translucent, and fragile. But they have a great finish and look great. Other ceramic mugs are usually opaque and more sturdy than porcelain.

Are ceramic mugs safe?

Most of the ceramic products are painted with lacquer that contains lead which is harmful. So throw away your ceramic mug whenever it gets scratched from inside.

How do you tell if it’s Porcelain or Ceramic?

A porcelain mug will be translucent, thin-walled, and well finished whereas other ceramics will be opaque, a little heavier and more sturdy. If you are looking for a well-finished mug for coffee, go with porcelain as they look great.

Wrap Up

We hope that the above collection finds you your favorite cup to enjoy the coffee till your last sip. Don’t compare these mugs for travel purposes as those things are commonly referred to as a thermos.
