Travel mugs are everywhere. So why does Sweet Maria's even bother selling products that you can find for a lot less at department stores, convenient stores, gas stations, 7-11, etc? Well, if you have a busy lifestyle, travel or commute a lot, a high quality, durable mug is important. Those cheap-o coffee vessels with leaky lids, thin walls and plastic interiors walls are bad news if you want to use them more than a few times. All the travel mugs we carry, are durable, easy to clean and have a variety of capacities. They may be a little more expensive in comparison to what you will find in the checkout line at your local supermarket, but we promise that they will last for a long time and will keep your coffee hot for hours.
Every coffee vessel is tested and skeptically scrutinized before we carry it. Also, we stay away from offering mugs with complicated levers and tight crevices. Mechanized flip tops and fancy lids are cool but after a few months, develop goop and residue (yuck) that is hard to clean, even in a dishwasher.
We have been selling this mug for years and it's still an employee favorite because of it's simplicity and durability. It's made to take a beating, keeps your coffee hot and is comfortable to drink from. The handle may seem cumbersome but after using it for the first time, you will find that it doesn't get in the way at all. The carabiner is great for hanging your mug from a backpack. You can always remove it if it bugs you....
