Everyone’s done it before. You brew coffee and it’s too hot so you set it out and wait then come back to it and it’s gone cold. Reheated coffee just doesn’t taste the same, either! A temperature controlled mug does exactly what it says – it controls the temperature of your coffee until the last drop. In other words, the mug waits until your coffee cools down to the right temperature and then keeps it from getting cold throughout your morning. Therefore, even if you leave your coffee somewhere in the middle of your routine you’ll be able to come back to a perfectly hot cup of coffee.
