Here at the Kitchn, we’re big coffee drinkers. Whether it’s the barista-worthy instant coffee that we just can’t get enough of, a fall-favorite pumpkin spice medium-dark roast, or jitter-free mushroom blend, if involves coffee beans, we’re here for it. There’s just something about getting in our morning cuppa that starts the whole day off in the best way. And, while our coffee-making routines vary — some of ur meticulously grind, steep, and French press whereas others simply pop in a pod — if you dropped in our morning zoom check in, you’d see each of us nursing our brew of choice. We might as well be a virtual coffee-drinking group.

While there are some members of our team (myself included) who insist on drinking iced coffee or cold brew all year long, the majority of the Kitchn crew loves a hot cup of joe, especially with the increasingly chilly temperatures outside. And, there’s one thing on all those hot-coffee-drinkers’ wishlists this year: the VOBAGA Coffee Mug Warmer.

Yes, this coffee mug warmer is just what is sounds like; a handy little appliance that’ll keep your coffee (or tea, or cocoa, or, dare I say, happy customer. “It heats up quickly, and oh yeah it stays hot … I wish I’d searched for this little coffee buddy sooner. I’m thinking it could keep a bowl of soup warm too!” I mean, maybe I (the strict iced latte drinker) should get one. Forever temperature-perfect soup? Doesn’t get much better than that on a winter workday, if you ask me.

Some reviewers even found themselves subject to a gift-giving chain reaction when receiving this VOBAGA gadget (a fate I believe many of my colleagues are destined for). “I put this on my Christmas list and received it as a gift last year. I’ve been using it regularly and love that it keeps my coffee hot since I’m a slow coffee drinker,” shared one latte lover. “I enjoyed this product so much I gifted it to my dad for his birthday and he enjoys this product too.” So many reviewers had this experience, I might just go ahead and snag a bunch as office gifts while they’re on sale. Who knows, maybe I’ll be getting one in return!
