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!

DISCUSSION

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.
