Choosing a Thermos for Coffee

There is nothing better than a freshly brewed coffee, whether filtered, espresso, hot or cold. But what happens when you need to take it with you? A walk, a long journey. A place where you know you may not have what it takes to prepare and keep warm.

It's all a problem.

Then, when you go to work or training, it is not good to carry a thermos or a thermal jug for camping. It's also not practical at all.

Each thermal coffee pot has a function, use and style because they are designed to make your life easier! Therefore, you have to guarantee the flavor as well as the temperature.

What are coffee thermoses?

Original thermoses for coffee are containers that allow us to carry our most valuable drink, while preserving its temperature, aroma and texture.

They say the coffee thermos originated in 1892 by a Scottish researcher named Sir James Dewar. A Scottish researcher at the Royal Institute of London working on cryogenics to create a vessel or device for isolating liquid oxygen.

Among all the proposals and prototypes tested, the handy glass bottle in a vacuum-insulated metal bottle emerged, which was finally patented by Reinhold Burger in Germany in 1903. A glassblower owned by the company affiliated with Dewar that gave it the commercial use we all know today.

A thermos for coffee:

Economical and portable.

Hot or cold, it maintains the right temperature for your favorite beverage.

It provides storage of liquid.

It is easy to wash.

Various designs are available.

Types of thermos for coffee

Since then, there have been many developments in the coffee thermos. In order to make it easier for us to carry our elixir of life in the most suitable conditions for consumption.

They differ in size, design, condition and even colors.

thermal pots


Thermal jugs.

Thermal glasses.

Depending on the type of insulation, coffee mugs can be air, foam, copper plated or porcelain lined.

Any of these versions is used to keep coffee at the ideal temperature wherever we are.

How to choose a good thermos for coffee?

As I mentioned before, there is a type of thermos suitable for every occasion. What matters beyond the design is that the thermos meets certain specifications that guarantee the preservation of the coffee.


Depending on the number of cups you need to serve, you will choose the capacity of the thermos for coffee. Note that each glass can range from 160 to 240 ml. It all depends on your size or consumption.

If you need a thermos to share, a larger capacity means you'll be carrying more weight and taking up more room. That's why we recommend you to prefer thermos for coffee for personal use.


Whether you consume hot or cold drinks, the effectiveness of the insulation is determined by the production material of the coffee thermos.

Here we need to pay attention to the budget to invest. Inexpensive materials such as tin, ceramics or plastic do not work well.

You should always choose the material that reduces the heat transfer. Vacuum-insulated, double-walled stainless steel excels here.

Today, thermoses are produced with electro-polished inside, which makes it easier for the coffee to be less affected by odors and flavors that are not related to it.


The coffee thermos should be practical beyond cute. For this, you should consider:

It is easy to open and close.

It works with an anti-drip system.

It has hermetic closure.

It is convenient to clean and store.

It is convenient to carry.

Usage recommendations

If you want to store hot coffee, it is recommended to preheat the inside of the thermos. Just pour boiled water and let it brew for 5 minutes, then drain the water and pour the coffee.

On the other hand, if you want to bring iced or cold coffee, pour ice water or ice into the thermos for a few minutes. Then strain and serve the coffee cold.

When transporting, always transport it in a vertical position and firmly fixed.

A thermos for coffee cooperates with responsible consumption by minimizing the use of disposable plastic cups.

Avoid plastic thermoses containing BPA or BPS, preferably use stainless steel or ceramic.

After each use, wash with a soft sponge, soap and water.

Store the thermos with the lid open, that is, without screwing it in or closing it completely.
