Tech Thursday

Ember – the world’s first temperature-controlled mug. This is so clever I’m amazed nobody has thought of it before. The optimal temperature for drinking coffee or tea – that perfect combination of temperature, taste and time is very fleeting. My wife always puts the coffee from our coffee machine in the microwave for 10 seconds as she never manages to get the right combination of froth and temperature, and if she reads while she sips, often she has to heat it up again after 10 or 15 minutes.

If like me, you start your day with a Bulletproof Coffee, you’ll know how important it is to keep the temperature up so it doesn’t become a warm, fatty sludge.

The Ember mug – see comes in stainless steel, ceramic and also a travel mug. While sitting on its charging saucer it will maintain the temperature – which you can set on your smartphone, of course – at your preferred setting for as long as you need. When not charging it will still maintain the right temperature for about an hour. If you’re the sort of person that likes to take their time over their cuppa joe, but hates that it goes from too hot, to just right, to lukewarm too quickly, check out Ember.
