Insulated Coffee Cup Off

I am very serious about the temperature of my beverages.  I do not like anything lukewarm.  I like my coffee scalding hot and my Coke Zero ice cold.

I found a few travel coffee cups in my cupboard and wanted to know which was best for keeping the coffee hot and drinking it hot.

So I took these three I insulated travel coffee cups and did a comparison.

The three I did for comparison were the Thermos 16 ounce travel tumbler, the Reduce Everyday Ridge Thermal Tumbler, the Contigo 20 ounce Snap Seal.

I filled each one with water from a recently boiled kettle and just left them on the counter.  After about an hour I measured how much the water had cooled off.

Here is the chart held by my youngest

I prefer in the reduce everyday cup because I cannot drink more that 12 ounces of coffee at a time.  Twenty ounces of coffee is just too much for me.  I would be just too jumpy.  The Thermos has a lid that makes it difficult to drink the coffee.
