We all wish we could have the luxury of a slow morning at home, sipping fresh coffee and leisurely strolling out the door for errands or work. The fact is life comes at you fast, and your morning routine likely requires a run to the local coffee shop to grab something to go. Keep things eco-friendly and save yourself a few pennies by having a great travel coffee mug or two on hand at all times. Whether cold brew is essential to your morning or a warm cup or three from your French press, these mugs will keep things hot or cool, no sweat (literally).
