The Math Lovin’ Momma Reviews:
If you’re a coffee drinker and you’re as busy as I am I’m sure you’ve had many days where your coffee is cold by the time you get a chance to sit down and have a sip. I’ve tried multiple insulated travel mugs and they help, but sometimes that still isn’t enough.
Enter Coffee Joulies.
These little guys have been scientifically engineered to make coffee drinking a better experience, and as a little bit a nerd that is one of the biggest reasons I love them!
So now the all important question, what are Coffee Joulies?
Coffee Joulies are big stainless-steel encased coffee beans you put in your coffee when you pour your cup. They initially cool your coffee to a drinkable temperature in minutes (literally) and then keep it warm much longer than normal.
Now my fellow nerds are wondering, ‘How does it work?’ Well let me tell you.
So, each Joulie contains something called phase change material. This material absorbs the heat from the coffee and then uses it to keep the temperature perfect for drinking by slowly releasing the heat back into your cup. This phase change material is non-toxic and edible, so it is safe to use in your cup ‘o Joe.
They’re shaped like coffee beans, but they can be used in any hot beverage. Even soup!
Use and Care
The creators of Coffee Joulies recommend one Joulie for every 4 ounces of coffee for maximum effectiveness.
Coffee Joulies are not dishwasher safe, but they are still easy to clean. Just a little hot soapy water after use and they’re good to go for next time!
I love them!
I had some serious doubts about them when I opened the box. I mean, come on. Giant coffee beans that are somehow going to improve my coffee drinking experience. I was pretty happy with my current insulated travel mug and couldn’t really see how they could be any better.
Despite my doubts I couldn’t wait to try them.
So, the next day, literally, I got my coffee ready like usual but I put three Joulies into my insulated travel mug before I poured in the coffee. Usually my coffee is too hot to drink for at least 30 minutes if I close the lid of my mug, which I do because those 30 minutes usually include travel time to school. Because I had the Joulies in the mug and they were supposed to cool it to drinkable in minutes I had to test the claim. I waited five minutes and took a test sip…
Perfect. Maybe a touch on the warm side but definitely drinkable without burning my tongue.
That first day I also drank my coffee slower than usual so I could test the claim that it kept it warm longer. I got to school at 7:30, about half an hour after pouring my coffee, at 11:30 it was still very warm. I left a bit in my mug so I could test it again at the end of the school day. At 3:30 when I was packing to head home I gave my coffee a sip and it was still warm(ish). Definitely not hot anymore, not anywhere near perfect temperature but it was most assuredly not cold.
Ok, so pretty impressive but I still had my doubts. What about in a non-insulated mug? On the weekends and days I don’t have to teach I use a normal ceramic mug and my coffee quickly goes from drinkably warm to cold faster than I can drink it usually.
The next Saturday morning I got out my mug and two Joulies. (I have a big mug…) About two minutes after pouring the coffee was drinkable.I tested it at 15 minute intervals for the next hour and it was comfortably warm for at least the first half hour. The last half hour it seemed to cool more quickly but there was also less liquid in the mug and the Joulies were exposed to the air. I’m not a scientist but it seems reasonable to think that could cause them to cool more quickly.
Overall, I’m really happy with my set of Coffee Joulies and would recommend them to anyone who needs a better way to keep their coffee at the perfect drinkable temperature for longer!
An added bonus is that they’re made in the U.S., keeps your coffee hot and keeps our economy going!
