    Hey BTP! I know I’m not the only coffee/tea drinker here so I want to ask what do you guys use on the job site? I mainly drive through if I’m working, but am looking for a good “thermos” type container. Any recommends?

    I have a Yeti. I really like it. But I would like to know of a good coffee mug (travel) that fits under a keurig.

    I got one of these in the 1.5L version:
    http://www.zojirushi.com/app/product/sfcc

    I used to bring a full container of my own iced coffee in it and it actually did last 5 hours while staying cold with the ice cubes inside of it.

    I also have one of the 0.5L ones and I think Zojirushi makes really good thermos containers since they really stay cold. Still haven’t found another brand that actually holds ice after 12 hours with as much ice volume inside of it.

    If they hang out in a vehicle all the time then that’d work out pretty well. I wouldn’t expect them to hold up to getting hit like any other vacuum container unless there’s some outer protective shell on them.

    The biggest pain is you gotta clean the lid out on them every often. They have a little latch release on the inside and you have to clean the big seal and the little seal on the inside. Dunk em in some water with bleach and wash clean with soap or they stink up and grow mold.

    i use a yeti rambler and i love it. it keeps your drinks hot for about 6 hours and cold drinks for about 7. realy a good thermos.

    @MRenes,
    Here is a small cup to fit under a Keurig but only keeps a cup warmer for an extra 20 – 30 minutes.

    I use a Hydroflask 1L to carry all my hot and colds, mainly I store ice in it so I can always have ice cold water throughout the day at work. The ice lasts in there forever if you just keep ice in it.

    Same here. Keeps things hot for hours. And a coffee never last hours around me. I also have a “Thermos” brand carafe. It will keep a pot HOT all day.

    Which Yeti tumbler do you have? I believe they have a number of sizes. Perhaps one of them will fit under your Keurig better?

    I just picked up a couple Yeti ‘Rambler’ 10oz with the clear plastic lids, I don’t know anything about them. Haven’t even tried one out yet, I thought it strange they didn’t come with the lids though. Had to pay another $5 each for those, Glad to hear they be good

    Yeti is great except pretty expensive and it drives me crazy that they charge for the lids.

    I use a stainless Thermos branded one that is about a litre capacity. Its great because I can do a refill of coffee at 7-11 for under $2 and it stays warm all morning.

    I also use the Contigo Coffee mugs that I got at Costco.. they are spill proof as you have to hold in a button to drink. They keep things warm for a long time. We also give them to customers as gifts. They really love them.

    I’m going to have to get something like that. Just found out that they’ve banned disposable cups on the site that I’m on, too many people leaving them laying around.

    ive had the best luck with teh stanley thermos. i use to carry it all the time when i was framing since we were nowhere near any coffee places. i would fill it at like 6 am and then if it was more than 1/4 full at the end of the day it would still be very very warm at 8pm. and the end of the winter i stored it away and then when i took it out the following fall it no longer kept things hot for more than 3 hrs.. the vacuum seal must have broke

    one thing i definitely check is that they arent glass lined.. break too easily

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I use Contigo tumblers I bought at Walmart. They are 20 ounce and fit nicely in the cup holder. They do not sweat. I’ve had ice still in my cup the next day. They are spill proof when closed and cost less than $15 USD. I’m not a coffee drinker, but my wife is. She has her own and it keeps her coffee hot for hours. I think it claims 7 hour hot and 18 hour cold.

    Heck of a marketing strategy right there, sell an insulated mug and charge extra for the lid.

    I used to use those Stanley, In fact I still have one around here brand new…Well, I should say never been used. It’s got to be at least 15+ years old. The company I worked for gave it to me and it came with a cooler that locks it into the handle and with company logo on them both, It was too nice to take to work LOL….

    And yeah after the first broken glass thermos I NEVER bought another one, Made dang sure it was SS. Dang thing liked to kill me, Plus ruined that days coffee supply
