    I'm looking for a new coffee cup. I had my favorite to-go cup stolen at work and am in need of a new one. I tend to like tall and thiner cups that hold around 20oz worth of coffee and DON'T DRIP! Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nissan makes a variety of sturdy travel mugs. I have the 14 ounce one, although there are several that hold more than that.

    My coffee never lasts quick enough to keep in a travel mug. I just usually refill the Sheetz cup every 30 mins or so.

    I often use the smaller Zojirushi (12 oz.) and am pleased with it's performance. It was a gift from my best friend, who swears by it for the very same non-spill characteristics.

    I have a Thermos Stainless Steel King 16-Ounce Travel Tumbler that I purchased 5 1/2 years ago and it's still going strong. Because I'm lazy, I just copied my own Amazon review:

    This is by far the best travel coffee mug I've ever owned. It is totally leakproof, disassembles easily to clean, keeps coffee hot for several hours, and is easy to open/close one-handed so it's good for the car. The ease of cleaning is important to me since every mug I've owned previously has had some kind of nastiness that grows in a crevice I can't quite reach. Not a problem with this mug! Also, as long as you don't overfill it, you can turn it upside down, knock it over, whatever, you won't spill a drop. It may cost more than some of the competition, but it is well worth it.

    You can search it (if it allows the link) w w w.amazon.com/gp/product/B002PY7AYS?ref_=cm_cr-mr-title

    I use an Avex 16oz Highland Autoseal mug (and for brewing a Bodum press).

    [​IMG]

    It works exceptionally well on the no-drip area as it locks. Great one handed use. Only problem is cleaning the lid part, but I just sponge wash it with hot water and soap and the bottle goes in the dishwasher. I've had one for about 1 year now and just bought another to rotate for daily coffee drinking. To give you an idea of the no drip greatness, I put it in my backpack with all my college work and have yet to have a single paper with coffee drips on it.

    Here's the Google shopping tab, but I believe Amazon has a better price on it. That is where I have bought both of mine.

    A friend used one of my hydroflasks for coffee once. It worked.

    Hydroflasks make amazing coffee mugs if you get a good one, my friend got a bad one with a leaky vacuum. Mine was quite nice.

    A co-worker gave me a Contigo as a Christmas gift last year. It's been great. So far, no leaks (it gets used 5-6 days/week).

    I've had a Contigo Travel mug as well. It's been going strong for almost 2 years.

    I have a bodum travel press mug which also came with a normal top. I've had it since tree beginning of 2011 and since then it's gone to work with a coffee in it almost every morning and often more through the day. I can still turn it upside down without a hint of leakage. Love it!

    Edit: It's the stainless version. I've had the plastic ones before and imho the stainless is worth the extra coinage.
