Capacity: It’s important to know how much the coffee mug can hold before you order. If you are prone to drinking a ton of coffee, you will naturally want a larger mug than someone who drinks it casually.

Material: Most of the mugs on this list are made of stainless steel because it helps to keep coffee warm for longer. However, some are made of high-grade plastic or ceramic for burning hot coffee on demand.
Insulated: An insulated coffee mug usually has another layer of material where the coffee actually goes, that way there is no heat lost with the coffee touching the outer wall of the mug. You’ll need an insulated mug.
Handle: Does the mug come with a handle or not? This is important to some people, so we’ll let you know if any particular mug comes with or without a handle. This is especially important for glove-wearers in the winter.
Hot/Cold: Does the mug work both ways? If it keeps coffee hot, it may also keep iced coffee chilled until you’re ready to enjoy it. We will tell you if that’s the case with this information.
