Keeping my coffee hot…

Ahhhh….  Of course!  A lid for the coffee mugs.  Why didn’t I think of that?  Well, no matter.  The folks at Deneen Pottery thought of it for me.  And you.

I like my coffee hot.  Not mostly hot, or a little bit hot, or fairly hot.  Steaming, piping, right-from-the-pot hot.  Now, it takes me a while to drink a cup of coffee at my desk, sitting at this computer.  And I have a really good coffee warmer (which fits my new mug perfectly).  It keeps my coffee pretty hot.  (Sigh.)

Then one day, I asked Niles Deneen if I could order a few of those lids.  They came right away, and wow was I ever surprised!  I popped one of those babies on my hot coffee and twenty minutes later, I took a sip and it was still really hot!  Not a little, not mostly, not acceptably warm.  Well, honey, color me happy!

Larry actually lets his coffee cool a bit before he drinks it.  (Horrors!)  So he just rolls his eyes at my hot coffee nirvana.  That said, if you’re like me, you’ll want one for yourself.

Now, where was I?  Oh yes:  Ahhhhh….
