    I like Coffee in the morning, I need coffee in the morning...

    I like riding to work, you see the dilemma i have...

    To enjoy coffee, one must take time in drinking it. One must also get quality coffee beans. I can get two cups down before i leave for work. If i cage it, i get great joy from drinking coffee all the way to work and finishing it at my desk. If i ride, I cannot enjoy drinking coffee while riding to work and i am stuck drinking the god awful Folgers coffee at work. Something that i have stopped altogether because it is so horrible. This has caused me to jump in the cage more often than i care to admit. (today is one of those days)

    What i need from you PNWriders.com is a quality reference for a quality thermos that i can, without fear of spilling, transport my coffee to work so i can continue to enjoy it as i start my day at work...

    Thank you,

    Wagigkpn

    Modular helmet + coffee cup holder + sealed coffee cup = win?

    assuming your comfortable opening the helmet and drinking at speed....

    Buy a Keurig for your desk? You may not be able to have coffee during your commute, but that doesn't mean you can't have good coffee once you get settled.

    I was faced with the same issue, but I went a different direction. I brought my own coffee maker (w/thermal carafe), beans, and grinder to work.

    That way I avoid the incinerated corporate swill.

    Check down at the Gag Harbor Goodwill store for a reasonably priced used one, clean it out, and voila, good coffee.

    Unrealistic...I would be swarmed by zombinistic co workers wanting some of my prized black nectar...

    This is exactly what i am looking for. Thank you. You are sure it wont leak?

    I had the same problem!! I have learned to do two things

    1. Drink expresso macchiatos. thats your two shots of expresso with a little bit of foam. You get the amazing flavors of coffee and a quick drink. take it like a shot if you have to, you might get a few stares and whispers though:secret:

    2. I bought myself a cheap, $6.00 thermos from ROSS, and it works perfectly. Never spilled and still hot hours into my work day.

    Hope this helps!!:mfclap:

    I carry a classic metal Thermos that looks like this, carries about 30oz and keeps it hot.

    Yup, 20 years later I'm still carrying the same Thermos top the office.

    Generally filled with a Jalisco organic coffee that I get from a private farm while I'm down there.

    Get a french press for your desk and bring in your ground coffee. I did that while in Afghanistan. Tastes great and is too big of a pain for random coworkers to want to use/clean.
