When I saw this product, all I thought was: “Wow, so I don’t have to make Turkish coffee in the microwave oven.” Yeah, the technology is pretty cool, you get a self-heating mug that gets it energy from a wireless charger base. The mug generates heat via the inlaid metallic particles. I will get one for myself. This way I can stop making Turkish coffee in the microwave.
Coffee… if you work in tech, chances are you like a nice hot cup of brew in the morning… or afternoon… or evening… However, if you’re like me, chances are you get a few sips and before you know it your cup of joe is lukewarm, or worse, cold. While you can get a thermal mug or other options that can keep your coffee or tea warmer longer TWINZ studio thinks they have the solution: an all-in-one self-warming coffee mug brew system with wireless charger.
The KOPI Mug is a smart, all-in-one self-warming mug + brew system. Made from super durable ceramic, KOPI’s base is inlaid with metallic particles that respond to an electric charge. When KOPI is placed on its wireless (waterproof) charging pad, the particles react via electromagnetic energy and heat your beverage to the perfect sipping temp. Plus KOPI uses wireless Qi technology, so it can juice up all your smart devices with wireless charging capabilities!
Not only does the KOPI Mug keep your coffee warm with its wireless charging pad but when not in use with the mug, you can use it to wirelessly charge your phone. As for your hot beverage? KOPI Mug will keep your drink at a steady 130°F/54°C and includes a lid to help ensure maximized warmth. During testing, in a 68°F/20°C room, the mug can keep your drink at or above 130°F/54°C for an hour-and-a-half with the lid, 30 minutes without. On that note, even without the lid, your drink will stay at or above 122°F/50°C for 90 minutes or longer.
KOPI Mug starts at US$60 for the Early Bird reward which includes the wireless charger. After those are gone, the price goes up to $72. There are also various combos available which include different combinations of:
- KOPI Self-Warming Mug, Wireless Charger
- Titanium Coated Coffee Filter
