Any recommendations for a high-quality glass- or ceramic-lined travel mug? Looking for a small to medium size. Thanks.

I will be watching here.
Glass has fallen out of favor for portable temp holding devices because it is so prone to breaking. I really prefer glass but SS is nearly always the only choice. It is OK but not like glass!

I did have a "not a paper cup" ceramic glass. It did a good job of keeping the coffee hot but the silicone lid added a taste of it's own that I found objectionable.

My favourite travel-mug is 'Contigo'.  It does not have a glass or ceramic liner.  However, it does keep coffee hot for a long time.  I like it because it is very easy to drink from (one button to push) and is absolutely leak-proof.  

That brings me to why I DON'T like to drink coffee from it:  The insulation is too good.  I fill it with hot coffee and 20 minutes later my mouth is scalded …because it's still too hot.  

I use it mostly for cold drinks and …to decant hot water to pour into my Aeropress.

I second the Contigo . . . but I *do* drink coffee from it.

We also have the Contigo mugs and they keep beverages scalding hot for hours and hours. The ones we have are from Costco (2pk for $20) and are auto-seal w/ a lock. We usually have to leave the lids off after filling for a little while before putting the lid on because it would stay hot all day otherwise.

I use the Takeya double-walled glass tea/coffee tumbler.  It does not keep coffee hot for very long, and you have to be careful with it because it is fragile.  But it is unparalleled when it comes to being able to enjoy a good cup of coffee without any "extra" flavors.

I third (or fourth) the Contigo. I fill one for work every morning with brew from my Brazen. However, I also have the "problem" of the coffee staying too hot. What I have started doing is brewing a little bit stronger and adding an ice cube to cool it down before I place the lid on. (I have wondered, though, if this presents any risk of shock to the mug that could damage it.)

As a side note, without any cooling technique, I find that the coffee is usually still too hot to comfortably drink until around 2 hours after cupping. This may be a boon to some, but to me, it's more of an inconvenience given that I want to start sipping right away. That said, I am curious to see if the cold winters months will noticeably reduce this cooling time.

I tried the ceramic travel mug my daughter uses---from *bucks. It's white with blk plastic tight fitting top--a little heavy for me but nice. Contigo probably best bet from comments here. We have a new Costco opening here so checking out Contigo  soon.

I had read about the Zojirushi Stainless Mug which can retain your coffee temperature even for 8 hours. This mug is good for travel. Unlike any glass or ceramics interior which is breakable, this kind of mug has stainless steel lining which is durable.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.
