Shopping for a coffee snob is often surprisingly difficult. Sure, you can get a bag of coffee from a specialty roaster and probably be fine, but chances are they've either already dialed in their process to perfect the coffee beverage they enjoy or they're an exploratory coffee enthusiast who's already tried that roaster. Instead of having to deal with a coffee enthusiast's specific palate or often personal process of coffee creation developed over time by their specific introduction of carefully selected instruments, you can target the often ignored, but still essential portion of the coffee enjoying experience: actually drinking it. The mug has always been a great gift, and now Ember has brought it into the 21st century. The Ember Mug 2 keeps your coffee at the perfect temperature, allowing you to set it using the connected app. While I haven't been able to try it personally (yet, since I made the mistake of only just reaching out to Ember on Black Friday), the reviews of trusted experts are overwhelmingly positive (albeit the product is pricy). The 14oz version offers 80 mins of battery life (although you'll just leave it on the charging coaster anyway) and submersible up to 1 meter of water. Unfortunately, it isn't machine washable, but it is fairly easy to clean/rinse out. Overall, its a mug so the design is pretty set and the additions single-purpose additions Ember has made are implemented well. For an in-depth review of the Ember Smart Mug (the predecessor to this product), please watch this youtube video by James Hoffman (2007 World Barista Champion and Professional Coffee Person). The Ember Mug 2 is a great gift for the person who has everything and also drinks coffee.
