When you are a coffee aficionado or heavy drinker, you like to enjoy your favourite drink wherever you go. On a trip, a hike, a walk, or simply at work. And then you realize that you need to buy a thermos for your coffee.
Then you start looking at coffee thermos and it turns out that there are so many options and so many types on the market that you don’t even know where to start – if I just want a coffee thermos to keep it warm for a while! Well, don’t worry because it’s normal to get lost.
Luckily, we are here to help you choose the thermos flask for your coffee that best suits your needs. You can start by taking a look at our coffee thermos window:
What is a coffee thermos?
Let’s start by giving an overview of this type of product. Thermos flasks for coffee are a subset within the generic thermos flasks for beverages. These are thermos flasks specially designed to keep the coffee hot (there are also cold thermos flasks, whose purpose is to maintain a cool temperature inside), and whose design is also adapted to coffee consumption.
Aesthetics, materials and sizes revolve around this, our favourite drink. As coffee is a drink that is usually consumed very hot, most coffee thermoses have insulating coatings and handles to prevent coffee or tea from burning. Prevention is better than cure (burns, in this case).
We should also mention mugs, or thermos cups for coffee. These are individual cups with a lid (so as not to spill the interior) and with thermal materials specially designed to conserve the heat of the interior. Thermal coffee mugs are the ideal complement if you like to drink coffee in the street or at work – and an ideal gift for special occasions!
The best-selling thermos is always the 200 ml Ibili thermos. (although there are more sizes), which is not necessarily the best hard thermos on the market, but it is the one that best combines price and functionality.
- Capacity: 150 ml
- Material: stainless steel
- Dimensions: 5,5x5,5x17 cm
Are small or large coffee thermoses better?
When we are going to buy a good coffee thermos, one of the first doubts we have to solve is its size and the use we are going to give it. A thermos cup for coffee, for almost individual use, is not the same as a large thermos flask for coffee, designed for large services.
Small coffee thermoses are usually for individual use. We use them to drink coffee at work, or on the street (this is a common custom in the United States, but also increasingly seen on our streets). A good example is the famous Starbucks coffee thermos, to name but one.
If you need a good thermos of coffee to go, we have several in our online shop. You can find them in the shop window above.
Small coffee thermoses are also known as one-hand thermoses. They often serve to insulate the temperature of all kinds of liquids, and therefore there are single-handed thermoses specifically for sportsmen.
Large coffee thermoses, on the other hand, are similar to a coffee machine or table-top carafe. They come in various sizes, but usually range from 1 to 2 litres.
A coffee thermos flask is very useful, for example, if we have a meeting or a visit of several people at home, we can prepare a large amount of coffee for everyone, but we will need a large coffee thermos flask if we want it to stay hot on the table after a few minutes. It is also common to find a large thermos flask for coffee at business breakfasts, hotel and restaurant buffets, or caterings.
As you will have seen in the initial gallery of our page, we have enough large coffee thermos to cover any demand and need.

How to sublimate a thermos coffee cup?
Sublimation of a thermal coffee cup is an increasingly popular process. Instead of buying customised coffee cups, we can sublimate our cup and incorporate the design that we like best. Here we leave you with this very useful and clear explanatory video where you can learn more about this process. The best way to have a personalized thermo coffee cup!
Where can I buy coffee thermoses?
In our shop we have everything: electric coffee thermoses, original coffee thermoses, a good portable coffee thermos, so if you need to buy a coffee thermos you will surely find what you are looking for here.
However, when looking for a coffee thermos you should also look in the household/kitchen or even sports sections of the department stores. Contrary to what many consumers think, the coffee thermos shelves are not always located next to the coffee makers, but rather in the kitchenware area.
