New Smart Lid Tells You When Your Coffee Is Hot
Our society is a coffee drinking anchor. We are always on the go and are trying to get our daily caffeine fix. Many of us wake up, take a shower, throw on some clothes, and jet out the door. We are usually in a hurry, but make sure that we have enough time to wait in line at the drive-through of our local Dunkin Donuts. The wait is worth it because we know we need out coffee. There is a problem though. We are so eager to take a sip off our coffee that we often find that we are burning our lips and tongues. This causes us to become aggravated and cause our days to start off on the wrong foot. There is now a solution to this problem.
Many of us tend to act before we think. We have all been in this situation before. Especially when it comes to drinking something hot. Our eagerness happens to get the best of us and we react before thinking. I have burned my mouth many times before because of this. This is why a company called Smart Lid has popped up in Australia. They have developed a lid that will do all the work for us. They want to ensure that people around the world stop burning their mouths so quickly and have something to make sure that this does not happen.
The Smart Lid changes from coffee brown to red when placed over a steaming cuppa Joe. To help prevent potential spills, the lid’s bottom ring also turns red when not securely fastened. There have been many times in which I did not realize my coffee top was not on enough. Luckily I was able to avoid being scalded in the process. So you can imagine how excited I am to hear of that extra little feature.
The tops are expected to start popping up in U.S. delis and donut shops by the end of the year. Currently, the company is trying to negotiate with several of the large coffee companies to implement their product. This might not happen as quickly as we might like. It might take several years to see the tops in our favorite hot spots.
However, the company promises to try to get the tops in local grocery stores. This is because of the increasing trend of consumers going back to making coffee at their home, purchasing their supplies from the grocery store. Hopefully, Smart Lid becomes as popular in the United States as it is in Australia. All because I can not wait to get my hands on one of them!
