The only thing more important than your morning coffee might be the cup it’s served in. We form emotional bonds with our favorite coffee mug, so we did hours of research and countless mornings of testing to find five perfect mugs. Whether you’re looking for an artsy cup to star in your Instagram feed or a burly camp-friendly vessel that keeps your coffee warm for hours, we’ve got you covered.

Hydro Flask’s coffee mug has stainless-steel double-wall insulation to keep your coffee hot for hours. What sets this mug apart from others is the soft-touch finish. It feels good in your hands, especially the handle, which gives just a little when you pick it up.

Admittedly, this mug is more about aesthetics than keeping your coffee warm for hours. The Mountainscape is thrown and carved by hand in California, so each eight-ounce mug features a unique topographic mountain design. The handle-free design only adds to the precious nature of this functional piece of art.
