Ceramic Travel Mug: Stainless steel vs plastic

Material for Coffee Cups Ceramic Travel Mug

The most important decision you will make when choosing a ceramic travel mug to take with you for your coffee, is the material of the tumbler. There are three options available: ceramic, metal, and plastic. Your coffee’s flavor will be affected by the material you choose. Let’s take a look at the impact of ceramic travel mugs on coffee’s flavor.

When choosing a ceramic travel mug, taste is only one consideration. However, this post will only focus on taste.

Plastic absorbs Flavors

Plastic absorbs flavors and odors over time. You can see how much plastic ceramic travel mugs absorb by filling an old plastic travel mug with coffee and then drinking it. Next, rinse the ceramic travel mug and pour your tea into it. You’ll notice the hints of coffee in the tea. This is why you may not need a French press.

Your Ceramic travel cup won’t absorb the same flavors as the ceramic travel mug if you drink only coffee out of it. However, over time, aromas and flavors can accumulate that can make it difficult to identify the finer points of coffees.

Flavors are sometimes Added to Stainless Steel

Although stainless steel does not absorb flavors, it can sometimes impart flavors to coffee. This can happen due to poor construction, such as. It’s not always clear if this is because of poor construction (e.g., finishes that leech into beverages), or because of a reaction between one the 1,000+ compounds in coffee and the metal. Sometimes it doesn’t happen. However, coffee drinkers may report odd tastes from their metal tumblers.

Ceramic is Neutral

Ceramic is the best material for flavor. Ceramic does not absorb or impart flavors, so coffee tastes exactly as it should.

Double-Walled Coffee Keeps It Hot

No matter which Ceramic travel mug type you choose, a double-walled ceramic mug will keep your coffee hotter for longer than a single-walled mug. This is particularly noticeable in winter when ceramic Ceramic travel mugs are more susceptible to heat loss. Ceramic keeps coffee hotter than glass, but it’s not possible to make a travel ceramic travel mug from glass.

Coffee’s temperature changes when it cools so it is important to keep it hot for as long as you can. This will allow you to enjoy the full flavor of your brew.

Double-walled ceramic travel mugs can be made from metal, ceramic, and plastic. However, it may take some searching to find the right one.
