CHICAGO--()--Merging a consumer-inspired concept with a classic to-go cup look and its patented AUTOSEAL technology, Contigo, a leading brand of innovative travel mugs and hydration bottles, launches the sleek, new Morgan and the vacuum-insulated Monroe “To-Go” Tumblers. These new additions to the Contigo line of travel mugs are perfect for busy, on-the-go consumers who prefer to brew their favorite hot beverages at home before heading out to take on their day.
“The Monroe and Morgan are the latest examples of how Contigo looks to consumer feedback and trends to help inform our product research and development process to deliver options that meet the needs of consumers”
A recent Contigo consumer survey revealed that nearly three-quarters of all travel mug owners most frequently use their travel mug while on the go. Of those individuals, more than half say they use the mug in the car. Contigo’s survey also found that about 50 percent of travel mug owners use single-serve brewers and 25 percent of them brew their beverage in a mug or cup and then transfer it to their travel mug.
With this in mind, Contigo specially designed the Monroe and Morgan “To-Go” Tumblers to fit effortlessly under popular single-serve brewers and also in most car cup holders, making the coffee drinking experience more convenient and portable for consumers. Both new products feature Contigo’s wildly popular AUTOSEAL technology, which automatically seals between sips to protect against spills and leaks. The AUTOSEAL technology allows for convenient one-handed use -- essential for commuters keeping their eyes on the road.
“The Monroe and Morgan are the latest examples of how Contigo looks to consumer feedback and trends to help inform our product research and development process to deliver options that meet the needs of consumers,” said Sami Elsaden, CEO of Contigo. “The new Morgan and the vacuum-insulated Monroe ‘To Go’ Tumblers with AUTOSEAL technology eliminate an extra step for people who previously had to transfer their beverage from a mug or cup to their travel mug, so they can more conveniently brew and get on with their busy day. And, when their first cup of coffee is done, consumers can bring the Morgan or Monroe tumblers to a coffee shop to refill and avoid using disposable cups.”
