Good to the last drop: McDonald's coffee cup.
Good to the last drop: McDonald's coffee cup.

Kudos to McDonald's coffee cup

I love me some coffee. I like gas station coffee. I like coffee from doughnut shops. I like coffee from the fancy places of the world like Starbucks and Stone Creek and Alterra.

But I have never had a cup of coffee like the one I get at McDonald's.

I'm not talking about the coffee inside. I'm talking about the cup itself. It's about the most amazing thing I've ever used.

It's firm and stands up for days. It keeps the coffee hot. It's cool to the touch without having to use one of those scarves you have to wrap around other coffees.

I sometimes will let a half-filled cup sit overnight and then zap it in the morning. The McDonald's cup stands up perfectly to that beating.

I did some work for McDonald's at one time and I was astounded at the level of detail of their research and development. There was nothing too small to go over again, and again, and again.

Well that sure paid off with this cup. I wish every single coffee place would use the same type of cup.

They say that one day humans will travel inside of McDonald's coffee cups.

What a day that will be.

The best part of this article is the part where he microwaves Styrofoam.
