19 Best Travel Mugs and Coffee Cups of 2023

What are the best reusable travel mugs? Ask someone from Vogue, and their excitement for their favorite vessel might rival that of the latest great fashion collection. If one of your 2023 goals is to live more sustainably, buying a travel coffee mug or tumbler is a simple way to bake the virtue into your everyday life. Many of us are guilty of grabbing a latte and, after an hour or two, quickly discarding that paper or plastic cup into the trash. According to the National Coffee Association, Americans are drinking, on average, around 3 cups of coffee daily and recent research shows it could lead to a longer life span (I don’t know about three cups a day, though). So there’s no need to actually give up your daily coffee—just bring a travel cup that will help reduce the amount of single-use plastic disposed of each day, but can be chic, too.

Below, the Vogue staff spill about their favorite reusable coffee cups and luxe travel mugs.

Not to be dramatic, but the MyBevi travel mug has changed my life. I used to be someone who forgot to drink water, so introducing a 32 oz. tumbler into my daily routine has drastically changed the amount I consume. It’s a perfect water bottle—the straw makes me feel like I’m a little kid again, the water stays ice cold for hours, and it looks pretty cute sitting on my desk. I never thought I would be a big cup girl but I’m genuinely so obsessed I even got one for my boyfriend and my roommate.

Over the years, I’ve really come to love sipping a great cup of tea or warm water with lemon throughout the day but hate lugging around a bulky tumbler! By nature, the Museum of Peace & Quiet tumbler has been my minimalistic dream with a sleek silhouette and color-blocking details. Not only is it functional with vacuum-insulated stainless steel, but aesthetically pleasing to the eye as well.

My friends and family know that coffee is my must-have accessory, every day. I start my mornings with a fresh cup of joe, whether it’s while I’m walking my dog or grabbing one on the go for a day spent at the office. I received a set from Corkcicle for my birthday a couple of years ago (a matching mug and canteen), while we were hunkered down in quarantine, because my father knew I missed my routine of running out to my favorite coffee shops. Needless to say, I’ve used it every day since, and no other cup has kept my coffee hot for as long as this one does. The rest is history!

Maison Kitsune’s reusable tumbler is a timeless replica of the brand and café’s iconic coffee cups. Whether I’m on the go or working from my desk, sipping from this coffee cup always reminds me of Paris.

Why does a portable mug have to be simple? This sculptural, colorful version will be sure to add visual interest to anywhere you go. Suitable for cold drinks or hot beverages, this bottle is the ideal accessory at any time of year.

Even if it’s not coffee, I love starting my day with a pick-me-up drink! Matcha, turmeric lattes, tea—anything goes! Regardless of my choice, I always reach for my W&P Porter Mug. Not only is it the chicest reusable cup I’ve owned, but the no-slip grip feels comfortable to touch while I sip.

I love how unobvious this coffee mug from Fellow is. It’s small enough to fit in any purse or work bag, but can still hold an ample amount of coffee to keep you caffeinated throughout the day.

There’s nothing worse than watered-down iced coffee or a lukewarm hot coffee, which is why I’ve only used a corkcicle tumbler when I make coffee at home. It’s been my trusty go-to since my college days, keeping drinks warm even on the coldest day of the year. I love that it’s also stainless steel which makes for an easy clean up after use.

There’s nothing worse than having your hot simmering coffee turn cold while you step away from your desk. Enter: Ember—the innovatively designed reusable coffee cup that is designed to keep your coffee hot and fresh for hours on end. Brilliant!

Two things I love about Hay’s Sowden cup: 1. the good design (contrasting colors! sleek lines!) and 2. its ability to keep your coffee cold, or hot, for twelve hours. Considering I still drink ice coffee in the depths of New York winter, I likely won’t ever need the latter temperature meticulously maintained! But it’s still nice to have options.

Sorry, cappuccino lovers, I cannot stand the taste of coffee—like not at all. Instead, tea is my morning drink of choice. I feel really fancy when I’m sipping it from my favorite Tea Forte cup. It has a lid that allows me to take it with me when I’m on the go, and the pretty flower print makes me feel like an extra on Bridgerton.

I love my Kinto travel mug for hot and cold coffee alike. The clever double lid not only prevents awkward (or dangerous!) spillage, but also keeps ice cubes at bay.

I’m obsessed with my KeepCup. It’s a great size and most like a traditional to-go cup for me. Plus, it’s super easy to clean which means I’m way more likely to keep using it!

I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I do love my tea! This reusable mug from Miir is my go-to whenever I am on the run and need to take my drink on the go. I also love the sleek and modern design of the mug!

This speckly thermos looks like something a loving 1950s housewife would have filled with coffee and left waiting on the counter for her husband’s morning commute. I’m no housewife, but it does pair well with my midcentury vintage wardrobe!

For someone like me whose coffee order is good ol’ drip and a bit of half and half, (which might just make me the only non-non-dairy coffee order in New York) there’s something about drinking it out of a ceramic imitation of the classic bodega paper cup. Perfect for sipping joe or some tea daily at my desk or right at home—sans paper and plastic.

I use my Joco Cup faithfully every day. The annoyance of hand washing it every morning is offset by the righteous virtue I feel as I wait in line to pay among all the single-use plastic holdouts.

I used to be a diehard disposable cup user because I’m probably lazy and myopic when it comes to recycling, etc. But I have to say, I love this coffee cup that I keep at my desk and get my morning coffee in. I haven’t used a disposable cup since I bought it.

This soccer mom—tennis mom, actually—was yearning for a spot of tea while watching matches, so the hubsters lent me his Zojirushi stainless steel mug. It’s sleek. It has a lock function. It keeps things super hot, or super cold. I was sold. I wished for one for Christmas and Santa came through with a gift that keeps on giving. Now I don’t leave the house without it.
