We all have our little rituals. We rarely admit to most of them.
I have returned to the coffee-drinking fold (legacy of our southern Italy trip), but as a hot-milk-with-coffee sort of coffee-drinker. And this cup is a 1:44 cup, with my usual amount of milk—that is, I plug in 1 minute 44 seconds on the microwave to heat the milk.
Bonus: the turntable leaves the cup-handle at an angle that makes it easy to retrieve the warmed mug.
