Re: What do you drink coffee from?

I use either the Thermos Stainless King Tumbler (16 oz) or the Ozark Trail tumblers from Wal-Mart when I'm on the go, and whatever Star Wars mug I can find around the house if I'm staying in.

The Thermos brand is much better about travelling and keeping coffee hot longer, as it has a water-tight valve system lid that you can close off to prevent heat from escaping. It will also allow you to close off the spout and mix in whatever you need to (like fru-fru vanilla stuff that my wife uses it for). The Thermos is a little bit harder to clean, as it has three silicon rings and small part of the lid that needs to be cleaned, but it's much better to drink out of.

I am starting to not like the Ozark Trail tumblers for drinking hot coffee. It has something to do with that plastic lid they come with and how it seals on the rim of the tumbler. The best way to describe it is that the coffee has to "fill" the seals of the lid the first time before the coffee is dispensed. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to get that first hot sip and I get blasted with coffee and it burns my lips or mouth. Kinda like trying to get a few ice cubes from the bottom of a cup, and then you accidentally break them all loose and get blasted by the entire chunk of ice. I've gotten to the point where if I can, I'll pour out a little bit of coffee in the sink before I drink from it to get that part over with.
