How the Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug Saved My Morning Coffee

Shares

I’m a little obsessed with coffee. A life with two young children, one in therapy and the other with energy through the roof, I need my coffee in the morning to get through the day.

My day starts at the crack of dawn, I wake up early to have a moment of quiet time before the kids get up. Though it doesn’t always work that way… I really think my kids have a built in sensor and know the minute my eyes open.

I like to sit down, check my email and drink my coffee to wake up and start the day. When I can sneak out of my room quietly, this is definitely a doable routine. Though most mornings, when my children realize that I have woken up early, my routine gets a little broken up. My coffee often sits there to get cold while I make the kids breakfast, clean up spills and change diapers.

Is it possible that the Contigo AUTOSEAL West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug could help me out with the cold coffee problem? Contigo sent me one for review and I put it to my morning routine test.

  • Keeps cold drinks cold for 12 hours
  • Contoured shape that allows for easy handling

Contigo AUTOSEAL West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug

The Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug fits perfectly under our one cup coffee maker, I can drip coffee directly into the cup without having to pour from a coffee cup. I love this convenience, making it so easy to transition into my morning routine.

I’ve been using this travel mug for about a month now and it’s become a must have. Just this evening, I made myself an evening cup of coffee – it’s been a long day and really needed a boost. My coffee was served directly into the Contigo Stainless Steel Travel Mug, then it happened. My kids reached their limits and it was time for baths, changing of the bed sheets, story time and bed. The whole process took an hour and a half.

I finally had a chance to sit down, eat my now cold dinner, and relax. Then I took a sip of my coffee, expecting it to be cold and my coffee was still scorching hot. While it sucked to burn my tongue on hot coffee, I smiled at my Contigo stainless steel travel mug and relaxed with my coffee while the kids were in bed.

I love every single thing about this Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug.. everything! It’s been so easy to use in my every day routine, I love that it can come with me when running out of the house last minute and it’s just what I need when my life gets interrupted before finishing up my cup of coffee.

Now I just need to add a few more to my collection and my problem will be completely solved.

    Love that mug!! My daughter has a couple contigo autoseal cups and I just love them. I'd like to get a couple for myself. I'm caffeine intolerant and even decaf I only drink once in a while. I'm a tea drinker, so this mug would still be wonderful for me. Reply

    I like that it holds hot or cold beverages. My mug specifically states no cold drinks -bummer for iced coffee. Reply

    Having something like this that keeps drinks hot for so long would have been nice when I worked retail. I drank more cold chocolates than hot chocolates for those four years LOL Reply

    Wow. I would love that for my tea, too! I hate drinking cold tea, but chasing around two littles makes it quite difficult to EVER finish a cup while it's still warm! Reply

    The best thing is obviously that you can drip coffee directly into the cup without having to pour from a coffee pot; that's a time saver. Reply
