Do you love coffee? I know I do! Most hardworking professionals take their coffee with them wherever they go. This is why everyone needs good coffee mugs to keep their drinks warm all morning long.

So today I want to share the best mugs for coffee for the upcoming promotional year. Custom mugs with your logo remind potential customers of your business whenever they use them.

Our mugs at Totally Promotional range from fancy for your top clients to budget-friendly for employee appreciation. I think there’s something on this list for everyone!

What types of coffee mugs are best?

which coffee mug is best

The best mugs for coffee are best determined by how they are used.

Travel mugs are great if you want durable mugs for on-the-go use. They are typically made of metal and have a lid to block spills.

Ceramic mugs are perfect for easy cleanup because of their smooth finish. All of these mugs have handles so they can be held securely.

Plastic mugs are a low-cost option for businesses. They are made with thick material that lasts.
