I have a question for you. I have been on the fence for getting this cup. (I have too many things for coffee that getting an another thing more will bring down the wrath of the supreme agency down on me).

What I wonder is how thin this is? From the pics it seems it is thinner. But I assume may be its because it's tall. I want to keep it in the cubby holes near to my hand as opposed to the cup holder which is in a less than ideal position. See for yourselves.

My elbow always hits the current cup on gear shifts. Only the thinner pepsi cans fit in the cubby holes near to the handbrake. Do you think the insta cuppa ones will fit there?
Also I wonder the tall ones may cause further inconvenience being in the way.

Been using the Quechua Insulated flask for the past 4 years; picked up at Decathlon Zirakpur while driving back to Delhi from the Himalayas. They had only one piece left in stock i.e. the demo model but my father liked it so much, he bought that one piece without a second thought. The best part is that on the same roadtrip, we stopped at a Costa Coffee near Ambala and the barista there too liked the flask and gave us almost two portions of espresso even though we had paid for one and said "Bahut badiya cheez hai yeh, saar" while handing the flask back after filling it with coffee to the brim.

In November 2019 on a trip to Hyderabad, I picked up an Insulated Travel Mug from Ikea and since then it has been the go-to flask for the roadtrip, especially for the driver due to it's one-handed usability.

Although the Decathlon flask has a splash guard, the Ikea one trumps it by having a push button and a narrower opening which is very handy if you're driving alone and don't have someone to assist you with opening the lid.

Here's to cars and coffee!
Cheers.

Just the thread that i am looking for now. Being a coffee lover (addicted in one way) and i just love the road trips with a hot coffee to sip while driving.

Here is my driving collection:
Attachment 2059805

Nice collection

After Baloo (2020 Nexon XZA+) came to my home, i got into a tough situation as its coffee cup holders in the central console are super tiny and deep. None of the take out coffee mugs/cups, from any of the chains i am used to, fit in there. I never used a re-usable one earlier and often stops-by any of these famous outlets to collect my coffee.

I am now searching for some re-usable travel cup that fits into Nexon's central console. Looking for suggestions from my fellow BHP'ans

thanks

Nice collection by BHPians !

I absolutely love mine from InstaCuppa. Keeps coffee warm for 5 to 6 hours.
