I wouldn't sip coffee or tea
This is a great, sturdy, lightweight mug. It can be placed directly on the stove for boiling. My MSR Pocket Rocket stove, two full-sized Bic lighters, a teaspoon measuring spoon, and some individual serving packets of instant coffee all pack into this cup and then I nest this cup into a Snow Peak Trek 700 titanium pot. This cup makes a nice bowl for instant oatmeal in the mornings or holding half a portion of a freeze-dried meal.

There are three drawbacks. The first is that the thing is ridiculously expensive for what it is - a cup. The second is that it only holds 14 oz when filled to the very top so you can only boil 1 1/2 cups in it without it boiling over. Most freeze-dried meals require two cups of water. That's why I carry the Trek 700 as well, it will boil 2 cups. The third is that being single-walled it heats up and will burn your lips if you try to drink a very hot beverage like coffee, tea, or hot cocoa.

I bought one of these expensive, lightweight mugs thinking that I could shave a few more ounces off my pack but after one trip I will not go without my trusty, well insulated coffee cup again. This cup is perfect for cold cereal, semi-hot soup, or as a measuring cup but for hot liquids or cooking forget it. There's a good reason why titanium is used in jet and turbine engine exhaust pipes - it retains its strength at high temps and it dissapates heat rapidly (like from stove to handle to fingers). I used this on my stove one time for heating water and quickly found that the titanium handles were very similar to a hot welding rod. When I touched the handle a little puff of smoke emitted from my finger tips leaving a couple of nasty second degree burns on two of my finger tips. Also, the lip on this cup is rolled which creates a perfect little "dribble" every time I put it to my lips. I just read that the Brits did a scientific study on this subject (dribbling tea cups) but apparently the folks at Snow Peak haven't read this yet.
