Trek Soho Commuter Coffee Mug

Trek Soho Bicycle Commuter Coffee Mug

Trek Soho Commuter Mug

I am not a commuter, nor am I a coffee drinker. However, I know of a great product for coffee drinking commuters—the Trek Soho Commuter Mug. This 18-ounce coffee mug has a stainless steel exterior with a plastic interior, and is designed to fit in the water bottle cage on your bike. The insulation in the mug is decent, but the one weak spot is the lid—it is thin so there is going to be some heat less here.

Even though I am not a coffee drinker I have used this mug on occasions—it keeps my Gatorade or other sports drink from freezing in the winter. I know this is not the intended use, but winter cycling forces all of us to make compromises. The only downside of this mug is the height—it is nine inches tall and this might be a problem for small framed bikes. However, if you use the Zefal WIIZ Side Mount Bicycle Water Bottle Cage it should fit without any problem.

If you are looking for the right coffee to put in this mug you might want to try the new Sip, Clip and Go! Coffee that my friend Anna reviewed on this blog a few months ago.

The Trek Soho Commuter Mug retails for $15. The local bike shop I use just a got a new shipment of these mugs in, but I noticed yesterday that they are out of stock at the Trek online store (Item #05650). If you cannot find this mug at you local shop you might want to check out the 16-ounce Travel Mug from Sip, Clip and Go! Coffee (I have not tested this mug myself, but it looks like something that would work well for any commuter).

Sip, Clip and Go Coffee For Cyclists

Editor’s Note: I have followed the Slip, Clip and Go blog for a long time and was very happy a few weeks ago when I read that Karen (one of the two bloggers for that site) had started her own coffee business. Karen offered to send me samples of the coffee so I could review them, but unfortunately I am not a coffee drinker. When I was a little child my mother told me that I couldn’t have coffee until I grew up, and according to my wife I still have some work to do. However, Anna, a good friend and fellow cyclist, agreed to try the coffee and write a review.

Before I give you Anna’s review I want to tell you two things about Sip, Clip and Go Coffee. First, even though I am not a coffee drinker, this product has an incredible aroma. As I was opening the package Karen sent my wife was walking by and said, “That coffee smells fantastic!” Second, the packaging this coffee comes in is superb. A good part of my livelihood over the years has come through graphic design and I have to tell you that each bag of coffee is a work of art! As Anna mentions in her review, you might want to have this coffee on hand just to make a statement about your love of cycling.

Sip, Clip and Go Coffee For Cyclists

Sip, Clip and Go Coffee For Cyclists

Sip, Clip and Go Coffee has three varieties, Carbon-Free Commuter medium dark roast, Off The Chain medium dark roast, and Crank Set dark roast. I brewed all three in my Mr. Coffee set on strong and I drank them black—which is how I normally take coffee in the summer.

Carbon Free Commuter was first and the lightest of the three having a crisp sharpness and distinctly more acidic taste than the other two brews. Off The Chain was next, with a mellow familiar coffee pallet, not too strong or bitter, a nice cup of coffee.

Finally, I sampled Crank Set and found that it had the same mellow notes as Off The Chain, with a more assertive flavor. I preferred this one over the first two, as I tend toward a strong coffee presence. All in all it’s good coffee.

The packaging is distinctly geared toward cyclists and I think it would make a great gift for a cyclist, or something they can have at work or at home that reinforces a biker’s message of “I Like My Bike!”

Sip, Clip and Go! Coffee retails for $12.99 for a 12-ounce bag and is available in either Whole Bean or Ground. A three pack that has one bag of each flavor is only $35.99. You can order these products online from the Sip, Clip and Go! Coffee Website. Karen is just now trying to get this product into retail stores and local bike shops (she would be happy to give you complete details). This coffee is 100% Organic and Fair Trade.
