No longer with the new Flex Sip lid. With its twist opening, you get easy to use a leak-free lid that's ready for anything. The new lid is also easier to clean, it comes completely apart so that you can clean all the little nooks and crannies to make sure your pour-over coffee is always tasting top-notch.
