You spend the first 30 mins of your day, dreaming about the perfect cup of coffee to wake you up. The next 15 are spent making it. The first sip is oh-so-perfect, but a few minutes later when you take the second sip, it's gone cold to your horror!
Not the best way to start your day, right? If only there was something to keep your morning cuppa nice and hot for a prolonged period.
Here are some things you can do to keep your coffee hot, your taste buds satisfied, and your mood happy!
The traditional methods:
1) Knitted cup sleeves:
Cup sleeves are timeless (and so cute!) little accessories you can add to your mug.
The knitted sleeves or cup cozy are effective in trapping the heat by creating a second layer of insulation. Small and handy, these adorable cup sleeves can become a staple of the purse or a welcome addition to the car’s glove box.
They are available in all colors, and multiple shapes (yes even adorable animal ones), and are made of everything between wool and paper. The options are endless. Find one that matches your vibe and enjoy a hot cup of coffee for a long time.
2) A thermal carafe and thermos:
Whether you are a casual coffee drinker or a connoisseur- everyone deserves the perfect cup of coffee that checks all the boxes. Keeping your coffee in thermal carafes or even a good ol’ thermos is one way of having an enjoyable and warm coffee experience.
With well-insulated interiors, the stainless steel containers can keep your cup of joe heated for a long time. A kitchen must-have, you can use the carafe to enjoy appropriately hot coffee first thing in the morning. And come midday, your trusted thermos will rise to the challenge and meet all your needs for hot caffeine.
The modern methods:
3) Mug warming plates:
Listen, you are not alone in ‘microwaving’ coffee in desperation. Only to be burned by the uneven temperatures and abhorrently bitter taste when you finally take a sip of the reheated coffee.
Instead of taking such hasty and painful decisions, you can make your life easy by investing in a mug plate. The mini hot plates will reheat your coffee without bombarding it with radiation and keep your beverage hot till the last sip. Charged through batteries and USB adapters, these mug warming plates are the most useful as your desk companion.
4) Travel mugs:
Coffee on the go is made easier with the help of these travel cups. The newer fancier version of a thermos, travel mugs now come with the added benefits of safety locks and temperature control technology. The stainless steel models can even be charged to preheat the cup or reheat the coffee. And the safety locks prevent spilling mishaps. Now you can enjoy your hot coffee anytime and anywhere.
