Coffee or tea is a staple of our daily routine. For some, it is difficult to imagine our day without a cup of coffee in our hands. Coffee is a regular occurrence every morning before going out to work and after having our breakfast. It also accompanies us when we feel stressed about work. We also sometimes feel bored, sleepy and out of any hint of working energy. Then coffee always seems to wake us up no matter how deep our point of stupor was. Coffee or tea has been working as a blessing and frees us from tiring periods within our day. But the temperature of the coffee or tea is a vital part of the process that might be lost.
Now there are coffee makers, teapots and flasks that might give the tea its heat or preserve it. But in most cases, it is quite a tough ask to make it stay in one type of temperature for a long time. Now we are going to talk about one type of kitchen gadget that might change your perception of heat preservation of tea or coffee. The product in question is a smart mug. Now smart mug is a personalized item. It can be used by one individual. It keeps coffee warm without having to take out the coffee. The product we are talking about today is the Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2. As the name suggests it is a sequel of sorts of a previous product. But we will talk about the features, pros, and cons of the latest iteration.
The smart is in the name and so it also has smart features. The general mug is at a size where normally control buttons can’t be placed that well. So it seems it might be problematic for users to adjust the heat or control any processes. But unlike other appliances, The ember mug is app-controlled. You can download the app from the Google Play Store or the Apple app store. You can adjust temperatures, receive notifications about the coffee heating as well as have presets customized. There is also an auto-sleep mode. The mug will automatically turn off if there is no activity for some time. But if there is an activity it will turn back on without any tinkering.
