Illustration for article titled Fuel Cell Beverage Heater Keeps Your Coffee Drinkable

Nothing is worse than having a hot cup of coffee turn into a chilly mug of awful without you realizing it, only to take a shocking sip an hour after you've gotten to work and need another caffeine boost. Enter the Fuel Cell Beverage Heater.


It's a wee device that hangs on the side of your mug, keeping your joe piping hot, just the way you like it. It even has "thermographic ink [that] changes color to indicate when the beverage is hot." Well, it would, at least, if it wasn't just a concept design. Damn you, concept designs, getting my hopes up for products that don't even exist!

Reheating coffee actually messes with the chemical makeup of the beverage and ruins the flavor.

Reheating coffee does the same thing to the flavor as leaving it out all day - you either have to drink it hot or ice it right away to avoid losing the flavor.
