Dora is splurging on her second Ember Temperature-Controlled Coffee Mug.
Ember is a battery-powered, app-controlled coffee mug that will keep any hot beverage at your preferred drinking temperature. These mugs are pricey but worth every penny according to people who take their hot beverage consumption seriously!
