    Ceramic Cup with Lid

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys,

    There's a work initiative where people are looking for ceramic cups with silicone lids (or similar) - my first thought was that someone on here must've made/had/know of one. However, the search for "cup" is too short so if anyone can assist, please post!

    Criterias are:
    - durable preferably ceramic
    - has lid
    - need to be portable as we have a lot of meetings and rushing around (OH&S)

    I've seen these everywhere. From kitchenware stores (Robin's Kitchen, House) to Kmart, Target, Big W. Some cafe's often sell them. I can't think of a brand at the moment, I can picture the packaging of 1 in particular, just not the brand. Have you tried a search for 'ceramic takeaway coffee cup'?

    For instance: http://www.ecoathome.com.au/Eco-Home...Takeaway-Cups/

    Or there's KeepCups? My preferred favourite...

    Yes they are, but you did say "preferably ceramic", not "must be ceramic".

    I've seen the ceramic ones in "$2 shops".... for less than $5

    Make sure you smell the lids, yeah you will look a little odd in the store but some I've seen smell of chemicals, the good ones are silicone lids and are pretty inert.

    If you are walking around a bit, and taking coffee with you, how about one of the smaller insulated mugs??--often stainless, so even more durable than ceramic.

    Did the Breville cups have a Mo?

    Maxwell Williams make them.

    As well as S & P I think (Salt & Pepper)

    I think even my local newsagent sells them!

    Dunno if the Breville ones did but the idea has been done before. I saw them at SCAA a couple of years ago

    I think Javaphile might have taken pictures of them too... I remember we spoke about how they would freight well (or more likely not freight well... couriers love to play football!)

    the only problem I have with these things is that the drinking aperture is always open.....so if I make a coffee before driving to work and stick it in the cup holder in the car there is sometimes a bit of leakage.....I guess I could put less coffee/milk in the cup.

    That's why I find the KeepCup the best option.

    Oops, I forgot I had this thread open.

    Hmm.. the reason I stopped using my thermos was because the coffee stained the plastic suction lip (not sure what it's called) which in turn started to rot and smell like vomit after a few uses (disgusting for milk based drinks, I know).
    Hence why I've never considered a KeepCup because I reckon the same thing will happen.

    I have had the Maxwell Williams "Coffee To Go" double walled ceramic mug with lid for a few years now and it has stood up well. The silicon seems to be of a high grade with no smell or taste. The double wall helps reduce the heat transfer from the coffee to the hand. Only problem I have found is when I had it on the workbench in the garage one day some sparks from the angle grinder pitted the gloss finish on the ceramic but I cant really blame Maxwell Williams for that!
