My morning coffee ritual has become brewing two cups of coffee. One in a travel mug and the other to top off the travel mug. Brewed separately, I combine the cups after adding cream and sugar to one. I pour them back and forth to mix the cream and sugar equally to both cups. As you might imagine, it gets a little messy. So, today, I had a place to rest the cups so the counter did not need wiped off before work. I found it very helpful.
