Hot New Mug

Many of us have switched to glass drinking bottles that are great for water and cold drinks.

Now, Lifefactory, a Sausalito company known for its glass bottles wrapped in a silicon sleeve, has just introduced a glass bottle perfect for hot tea or coffee.

The new Café Mug joins the Lifefactory collection that includes silicon-wrapped baby bottles, food storage containers, and stemless wine glasses.

The sturdy bottle is not a thermos but will keep the liquid hot for about an hour. It comes in a choice of five sleeve colors with a wide mouth, a spill-proof cap that tilts open or shut with the press of one hand, and sheathed it in the insulating non-slip sleeve that protects hands from the heat.

At work, I have seen many people drink from BPA-free plastic bottles, vacuum-insulated bottles, and glass bottles. When I’ve asked my coworkers about their preferred drinking container, everyone seems a series of reasons behind their preference...

One unique company whose bottles haven’t gone unnoticed by me is Lifefactory. Undoubtedly, you’ve seen their glass bottles with the signature gripping sleeve. They come in a wide variety of colors and are ergonomically designed to make gripping the bottle easier. I have even seen Lifefactory products used by yogis and basketball players at the gym. In fact, several of my friends who are parents swear by Lifefactory baby bottles. Lifefactory has recently released the Cafe Collection—glass mugs for hot beverages, and I was fortunate enough to test it out.
