Caffeine addict? Me too. That's why I love this vessel.

I love my coffee. If you swing by the Outside office around 10:30 in the morning, chances are you’ll catch me dashing out to my favorite coffee shop in town for a double-shot mocha, already one cup deep. The only thing I wanted for my birthday this year was a French press, which I’ve since been nerding out over, toying with grind qualities and steeping times to get the perfect mix.

Whether I make it myself or pay for something fancy, I more often than not put my coffee in the Yeti 14-ounce Rambler mug ($25). It’s no secret by now that Yeti’s double-walled, stainless-steel construction keeps hot liquids hot and cold liquids cold for hours, so I don’t have to worry about coming back to lukewarm brew if I get pulled into meetings at the magazine or chores around the campsite. And the Rambler is hardy, capable of withstanding bumps and drops, plus its matte, textured finish and three-finger handle ensure a solid grip. My favorite feature, though, might be the wide opening—the Rambler’s rim doesn’t hit me on the nose if I go in for a big gulp.
