I use an insulated Klean Kanteen. Keeps my latte hot all morning long. One drawback...it does not come with a cap for drinking beverages, just a screw cap that completely seals it. The coffee cap is extra but worth it in my opinion. So, it doubles as an insulated water bottle or travel mug. And, they are available at most outdoor stores, like REI.
Just so happens this morning that my local shop had a bunch of mugs out and on sale, most were just plastic travel or ceramic mugs but they did have this one that met the criteria. It's double walled and the outside didn't heat up at all with a hot beverage inside. When I get home I'll do some testing how long it will actually keep something hot but so far it seems better than the other one I was using. The outside on this is raw stainless so it's not all pretty and brushed but should take on a cool patina over time. Best part is it was half price at $10.

All the ones I use are freebies from work or our associate vendors. My coffee is lukewarm by the time I get to work. . At that point I just warm it up with fresh coffee.

Hot coffee or cold coffee - who cares? As long as it has cafine I'm happy.
But - I do like the Contigo mugs.

It stays very hot, the seals are excellent, and it has a very thin lip so if you're like me you don't accidently slurp all over.

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
