If you were under a rock at the time, here’s what it does – the Ember mug rapidly cools your hot coffee or tea down to your chosen temperature and holds it at that exact temperature for hours on end. Well, Ember has done it again – using the same technology as the ever popular travel mug, Ember has developed the Ceramic Mug. This mug is pretty smart too – there’s no on/off switch here...
