“Choice already made. Again and again. You can see the rich patina of oils and methylxanthines on the inside of my excellent travel mug–deconstructed here for a rare more thorough cleaning. Mostly the application of boiling water to stainless steel ensures the safety of my personal coffee. Lovely mugs?–they are for guests, for tea, or for folks who do not need a beverage and a container that can protect themselves.”
