If you are looking for a very well insulated wide bottom travel mug to keep your coffee hot all day long then you have to focus your search on the vacuum insulated varieties which are actually few and far between.
The next best thing are foam insulated double wall mugs which are easier to come by but they won’t keep your coffee hot for longer than a few hours in the best of conditions. You might get warm coffee from morning to afternoon but probably not hot.
Which Travel Mugs Keep Coffee Hot The Longest?
For the best insulation and the longest lasting fat base travel mug I recommend checking out the mug which is pictured at right, the Chubby Coffee Mug Cup. It’s stainless steel, it’s gigantic, and it is foam insulated. With the lid closed between drinks and a preheated interior this mug is going to keep your coffee hotter much longer than most big bottom coffee mugs.
If you aren’t concerned with the shape of your mug then I recommend checking out some of the top of the line thermal mugs listed below. I’ve included them in the list of wide mugs because they do keep your drinks hotter longer. There are almost no desk mugs or wide bottom mugs listed that have as well engineered vacuum sealed insulation. They are good but not as good as the tumblers.

These Insulated Mugs Keep Drinks Hot For A Really Long Time
Fpr the most part wide bottom mugs tend to be just double wall insulated with either air or foam. The shape and customer demand don’t justify many manufacturers or brands to make high end vacuum insulated options in this shape.
The reason for that is debatable. I think it’s because most wide bottom mugs are used around the home or office and rarely taken in a car. They are also in a lot less demand so it may not be worth it to cater high end products to such a small market.
I’m not an engineer but I imagine that creating a really good vacuum seal on a wide bottom mug may be more difficult unless the mug is well tapered. I don’t know exactly but I do know that they simple don’t exist in mass produced volume.
If you really do need a fat bottom on your cup then check out the Chubby linked above or take a look at our page dedicated to foam insulated insulated mugs. There are a few options in that category at least.
What I do know however is that if thermal heat retension is importnt to you then you are almost certainly going to have to pick up either a tumbler or an insulated coffee mug with straight sides. These mugs are very common and they do still have a low center of gravity meaning they will still be harder to tip over than traditional coffee tumblers.
The best of all tumblers will be able to keep coffee hot for 12 to 24 hours, depending on what your definition of hot is. In all cases your mugs will always perform better if you preheat them with hot water, put the lid on in the sealed position, and keep them full from the beginning rather than partially full.
