Most travel coffee mugs aren't actually all that useful when it comes to getting takeaway coffee from your favorite coffeehouse. At best, you can typically pour coffee from the disposable cup that your barista hands you into your own mug. But the KeepCup was designed with takeaway coffee in mind. One of the biggest differences between the KeepCup and other reusable beverage containers is that it is sized to match the industry standards for espresso machines. The KeepCup comes in three sizes, all of which will actually fit under spigots and have enough room for the correct proportions of espresso and milk.
The KeepCup even makes ordering simple. Most baristas write drink orders directly on cups. The KeepCup has the various coffee options embossed on a silicone band around the cup. All you need to do is circle your preferences, so that you get the correct order (and avoid getting your KeepCup mixed up with any others behind the counter. The silicone band comes in several colors and can even be branded if you want to convince your company to order several. The KeepCup also has several features that make it a practical travel option, including a splashproof lid. The cup is both dishwasher and microwave-safe, and is easy to keep clean through repeated uses.
