WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ember Technologies, the new company that exists to make the simple act of eating and drinking more gratifying through temperature control, announced the release of its flagship product today: the only temperature adjustable mug that keeps coffee or tea at a consistent temperature. Using patented heating and phase change cooling technology, the Ember mug creates an unforgettable drinking experience that will change the way we enjoy coffee or tea. Ember has made their mug available via a pre-order campaign on Indiegogo for $129. The Ember mug will begin shipping in April 2016.

Rather than pouring too-hot-to-drink coffee into a paper cup or travel mug and then impatiently waiting until the temperature falls to a comfortable drinking level (and soon thereafter, to an unpleasant lukewarm), the Ember mug will rapidly cool your hot coffee or tea down to a chosen temperature and will hold it at that exact temperature for hours on end.  Experience the pleasure of enjoying your drink, in its perfect state, from the first sip to the last drop.

"I started Ember to solve a very simple problem: how to keep the coffee you love at the perfect temperature for as long as you like," said founder and CEO Clayton Alexander. "By merging Ember's patented temperature-control technology with beautiful design and an incredible user experience, we knew that we could appeal to discerning coffee drinkers."

Ember's patented temperature-control technology combines a phase change cooling system with an active heating system, creating the world's most precise temperature controlled mug.  Leak-proof and highly portable, Ember is ideal to take along in the car or use at home or around the office.  Ember will keep your coffee or tea at the perfect temperature for up to two hours on the go or all day long when used with included charging coaster.

Ember partnered with San Francisco-based Ammunition, a world-class consumer product design firm, to turn Ember's vision into a reality.  Ember's simple, elegant design has no buttons or complex instructions. Simply rotate the dial at the base of the mug to easily adjust the temperature and enjoy your coffee exactly the way you like it.  The mug can be controlled on its own, or through the Ember mobile app.  The app allows you to create temperature presets for all of your favorite drinks and even adjust the temperature of your coffee or tea remotely.

Ember is available for pre-orders on Indiegogo here.  For more information about the product and its many features, please visit www.embertech.com.
