Keeping a takeaway cup coffee warmer for longer

Recommended Posts

I go to Costa each day and have my coffee in a takeaway cup. I sit there in with the aircon going on full blast for a couple of hours, while my hands freeze and my coffee plummets to zero.

 

Are there any insulating gizmos I can buy to put around the medium sized Costa takeaway cup? I already order it extra hot.

Get one of their stainless reusable cups. It'll pay for itself eventually with the reduction they give for using them & it's double walled to keep the contents hot/cold.

After the first half hour, have you considered the manager might be hinting at something? :D

Just set the aircon to 18 degrees, then your digits won't fall off & your coffee will stay hotter longer....LOL

Get a Zojirushi travel mug - got a filter at 10am from a local cafe one day, and it was still too hot to drink at 2pm.

I like the feel of the Costa takeaway cups so ideally would like to keep that.

 

Are there any sleeve type things that can improve the insulation? Not sure what you would call them, that is if they are a "thing."

Nothing that wouldn't change the feel.

There are things, you see them on cafetières.

If you put it into something then you lose the feel.

 

I'm hoping Costa will move to a take out system where rather than a discount for taking a resuable they drop the base price and charge for a landfill cup.

 

That's been proven to massively increase the uptake of reusable cups as psychologically you think you are paying for the landfill cup.

 

I use an ecoffee cup, it's a similar "feel" to a takeout cup fully dishwasher proof, and made from bamboo and silicone. No weird taste or strange places for rancid coffee crust to gather.

 

It's not going to keep your drink warm for two hours though! Maybe just buy a second cup after 45 minutes?


Did someone say coffee?

Get a small vacuum flask, pour your coffee into it....then pour out little cups of coffee whilst you surf the web for a couple of hours on your phone. Ignore the glances of others who wonder why you are still there. If you invest in a nameplate, you can actually hold business meetings at your table and your flask will allow you to offer your clients a toasty warm cup of coffee. If you get a larger flask and buy a meal, Costa may allow you to bring a sleeping bag...useful to keep you extra toasty and to catch 40 winks at any convenient time during the day, or evening.

The best travel mug I've come across are made by contigo.....buy the easy clean one. I take mine out walking or motorbiking......in which case you find these mugs lose most the heat through the lids so I put them in a nice thick glove, lid side into glove...works a treat. Loads of reviews on amazon.

Are there any warmer device for coffee cup I can buy to put around the medium sized Costa takeaway cup? I already order it extra hot.

In winter, I will use warmer to keep my coffee warm so that it doesn't get cold. I put the warmer on the table and open it when I make coffee so that I can use it when I sit down. I put the cup on the thermostat so that I can drink hot coffee all day.
