If speaking about the most useful human inventions the thermoses should be definitely included to this list. Joking of course, but actually thanks to thermoses you are able to enjoy your favorite coffee, tea or cocoa on the way to work and be sure that it will not cool down in some minutes even in winter or cold autumn. Most of the good thermoses available for purchasing nowadays are able to hold hot inside during more than twelve hours, so you can fill this “magic mug” with your favorite hot beverage and enjoy drinking it during the whole day at work, school or while camping , boating or doing other outdoor activities.

What features should the best coffee thermoses have?

Thermosfor Coffee or other beverages

The first thought you think when hear about coolers is how long they are able to hold an ice inside. Same thing about thermoses, the first question that occurs is “How long they are able to keep hot inside?” Taking into account that the main purpose of using thermoses is to prolong the period when your drink will be hot, in case of thermoses “longer means better”, the longer the option is able to keep hot, the better it is. Because of this fact a lot of manufacturers do their best to somehow improve the duration of this period by implementing the new technologies. Actually the main technology that is used for coolers is used for thermoses as well. It is the rotationally molded technology. Together with good insulation it can significantly prolong the duration of your beverages being hot and the durability of your thermos. Today the Yeti coolers can boast of the best insulation because of their perfect sealed design and unique double insulation.
