Morning coffee is a big deal for Evan and me. We like to take our coffee to go and enjoy it during our commute. We brew Illy Medium Roast at home every day. It’s definitely not the cheapest coffee in the world, but it still costs less than buying from a coffee shop every day.
A few weeks ago, I began a quest to find the best travel cup ever, and after sifting through a lot of recommendations on Twitter, I decided to order two medium (12oz; equivalent to the “tall” size at Starbucks) Keep Cups from Australia.
The Keep Cup comes in three sizes, and is made from thermal, non-leaching, recyclable, BPA-free polypropylene. There’s a silicone band around the middle for grip and heat protection, and a leak-proof lid that doesn’t drip when you drink.
There’s no handle (I hate handles on travel mugs, because they eat up valuable space in my bag), and best of all, the cup is sized small enough to fit in the automated coffee/tea machine at my office.
I always put a little bit of whole milk in my coffee. We’re lucky to have a very good dairy farm in the area that sells their milk in thick, glass bottles that can be returned for a $1 deposit each time. They sterilize and reuse the bottles.
Ready to go, and out the door!
p.p.s. The truly is not a paid advertisement! I just really love my Keep Cup. And my coffee.
