My Coffee Mug Stays Hot 'Forever'...

My Coffee Mug Stays Hot 'Forever'...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Everyone loves a hot cup of coffee. I know I do. I don't drink a lot of coffee, but... when I do, I want a very hot cup of coffee.

I want to be able to place my hands on a cup of coffee... feel the warmth as I drink it... especially on a cold, winter day.

Coffee is comforting to me. Warm, cozy... happy. Imagine snow falling outside... the air is so cold... you are excited because it's snowing. When you look around... you see a winter wonderland.

When you go inside... you sit down to enjoy a hot cup of coffee. You place your hands on either side of the coffee mug... close your eyes. Oh my... how nice the warmth feels on the palms of your hands!

With your eyes still closed... place both palms of your hands on your face on each check... feel the comforting warmth. This is what I love to do!

Smell the aroma... it's so beautiful. There's something about coffee that no matter when you drink it... it's a special time.

When something bad happens... what do people turn to while waiting, hoping to hear good news? Coffee... good, old hot coffee.

Now... I want to tell you how I do a pot of coffee to make it that hot, comforting...

I let the coffeemaker make the coffee like usual, then ... I take the carafe of coffee... pour it into an aluminum coffeepot... put it on the range... and let it heat until it's a few degrees hotter.

Oh my, the coffee mug stays hot 'forever'... so, does my coffee!

  1. Never tried to do that before. I just drink it straight from the carafe to my coffee cup. Never tried putting it into anything else. Sounds like I need to make more coffee! Love, Ms. Nancy
