New app controlled travel mug debuts in Australia

Australians love their coffee, so the newly launched Ember travel mug with advanced temperature control technology will make the perfect gift this Christmas.

Hot on the heels of the previously introduced Ember ceramic mug earlier in November, the travel mug is designed for use on the go, featuring a push-to-open leak-proof lid and a 360 degrees drinking experience.

It connects to the free Ember mobile app for complete customisation―it lets you adjust the temperature and allows you to remotely set your desired drinking temperature, receive notifications when that temperature is reached, save pre-sets for your favourite drinks, name your mug, view liquid levels and more.

“Just a few degrees can make a big difference to how a beverage is enjoyed,” says Clay Alexander, founder and CEO of Ember.

“We’ve seen coffee lovers from all walks of life embrace the connection between taste and temperature.

The mug comes with multiple temperature sensors and a microprocessor-controlled, dual-band heating system, while its intuitive technology allows it to sleep when not in use and wake up as soon as it’s picked up.

“As an obsessive coffee lover, there’s nothing I appreciate more than enjoying an amazing cup of coffee at the perfect drinking temperature. Simply put, temperature affects taste, and our mission is to empower people to discover that connection―bringing a new dimension to the enjoyment of hot beverages,” adds Alexander.

“Our mission is to enhance the drinking experience by allowing you to choose the temperature that is best for you, so you can enjoy a perfect cup of coffee for as long as you want.”
