Staying hydrated and, let’s be honest, consistently caffeinated is important to me. I’m a mom to a very active toddler and a food writer continuously shuffling between daycare drop-offs and work meetings with clients. Finding a leak-proof travel cup that’s both big enough to quench my thirst for cold brew and somehow small enough to fit in my purse became my mission this spring. I also wanted my travel mug to be cute, but in an understated way. A tall order, perhaps, but one I was determined to fill.
My Instagram feed has been flickering with tasteful images of Stojo’s collapsible cup for months now. This travel cup is undeniably internet-famous, but it almost looks too good to be true. “Leak-proof” and “collapsible” aren’t exactly words that ring synonymous in my mind. I’m a sucker for sustainable products, though — especially ones that come in charming colors like sage, cashmere, and carnation. So, I finally bit the bullet and ordered the rave-reviewed travel cup to try out for myself. No exaggeration, I’m obsessed.
To buy: Stojo 16-Ounce Collapsible Travel Cup with Straw, $ 20 at amazon.com
The 16-ounce cup is the same size as a “grande” beverage you might order from Starbucks. It’s the perfect size to transport smoothies, coffee, and even cocktails. (BYOB has never been easier or more discreet.) When you’re finished with your drink, simply remove the temperature sleeve, fold it up like an accordion, and throw it in your bag. It even comes with a soft silicone straw that nestles neatly into your collapsed cup.
What surprised me most is how much this travel cup really does deliver on its promise of being both leak-proof and collapsible. Stojo designs its products to fit together like a puzzle; the cup folds down smoothly, is easy to disassemble for cleaning, and mine has yet to leak. My toddler has knocked my Stojo over a handful of times and not a drop of precious cold brew has been lost.
Over 3,000 Amazon shoppers seem to be as obsessed with their collapsible travel cups as I am. “This is exactly what I was looking for to avoid having to create waste every time I step out for a cup of coffee,” one reviewer said. Another who used their cup daily for five weeks noted how “it was super easy to clean,” and all of its parts are dishwasher-safe for added convenience.
Whether you’re planning a trip or two this summer or are looking for a compact coffee cup for your morning commute, I can’t recommend Stojo’s collapsible travel cup enough. “I love my first one so much that I bought another one,” a fellow fan on Amazon commented. I’ll be following suit. Bottoms up!
