Like it or not, there's still cold weather to come before winter is over. You don't have to face it with cold coffee.

Warm coffee, warm hands. Two winter essentials.


It feels like spring is in the air where I am in Arizona, but I'm going to be drinking warm beverages for months still. Even hot days come with cold mornings here. I've put long cold snaps mostly behind me, but a warm cup of coffee that stays warm is still a small joy I'm not giving up.

Enter the Mr. Coffee mug warmer. At $20, it's been worth every penny in coffee enjoyment. Having something nearby to warm my hands through last year's cold, gray Michigan winter in a drafty old house was a huge bonus.

Admittedly, my warmer is showing some signs of wear after a year of heavy use. Some of the black finish on the warming element is chipping away to reveal the bare metal below. It doesn't feel like it's built to withstand a ton of abuse, but I have no complaints after calling on its services for hours a day and months on end.

I thought the mug warmer would get less play now that I've moved to Arizona but I've still used it most days. Whether it's a day with a low in the 20s or a low in the 60s, sometimes all I want is a warm beverage that stays warm.
