A coffee thermos (also known as a vacuum bottle) works by keeping the liquid on the inside insulated from outside temperatures. This basically slows the rate at which the liquid inside will cool or warm. Typically, because it keeps your hot liquids hot, it also seems to deliver a level of freshness one would not otherwise get. A good can keep your hot liquid from going cold for at least eight hours. Even though we normally refer to them as coffee thermoses, they are also great for hot chocolate or even bringing soup to lunch. If you are working or hunting outdoors during the winter, a good cup of warm soup will leave you feeling refreshed.
There is always a lively discussion as to which is the best one. The brand are generally thought of as being the best. In fact, just like Kleenex usually refers to tissues not just the Kleenex brand thermos usually refers to an insulated flask not just the Thermos brand. Stanley is another famous brand can’t miss their iconic green look. When you get down to it though, the best one is the one that works for you. We all have our different requirements, whether its volume, size, or affordability. A lot of people choose the thermos based on its looks. Smaller ones that can hold 16 ounces of coffee are very handy to take into your car in the morning and then bring in to work. Like anything else you bring to the work, you don’t want to bring an ugly coffee thermos.
While there are many choices and the types, one way to make your thermos very special is to get it personalized. You can get a personalized one to reflect your name, your initials, or even your favorite football team. These are generally available online or at an engraving shop.
Of course, these days it seems as if everyone is drinking more and more coffee. So it only follows that we would get a large coffee thermos. Typically for just one person a large coffee thermos means a 1 quart size. But, of course larger sizes are available.
If used often enough they thermos can pay for itself relatively quickly. Think of how much money you could save if you boot your own coffee every morning and kept in a thermos instead of stopping by Starbucks every day. You could also fill up on soup from home for lunch instead of going out to eat. It will be just as piping hot and delicious as if you were in a restaurant. They are available at all major online retailers, as well as brick-and-mortar stores such as Walmart and Target. You can expect to pay between $20 and $100 for a good quality one.
