For those looking to keep their coffee hot on their winter commutes, the coffee chain has created a device that keeps beverages exactly at their desire temperature

There's nothing worse than getting to your office and realizing your coffee-to-go is now stone cold. Thanks to Starbucks, soon you'll be able to keep your drinks piping hot with a new temperature setting mug.

Just in time for the holiday season, Starbucks will soon be selling the Ember smart mug, an automated temperature-setting mug to keep your coffee or tea at whatever temperature you desire. The mug itself is easy to use—simply fill up the cup and use the dial at the bottom to set the desired temperature. The temperature can also be adjusted via the smartphone app, as long as you're connected to WiFi, that is, and the must even has a charging pad so you can take it on-the-go. At $150 a pop, it can currently only be purchased in Starbucks cafes.
