You take your coffee and you make it to your desk or the library, or home, or a table, or wherever you can sit and have an available surface to lay down the coffee while you continue to live your life.
Do you drink the coffee with this plastic lid still on, or do you remove it and sip from the cup?
I always remove the lid and sip from the cup. I find it more enjoyable for reasons I can’t quantify.
Some times that little flow nipple in the lid is not punched hard enough. Then my coffee doesn’t flow as well, at this point I usually say fuck it and go raw dog style. Otherwise I like the protection of a lid.
It stays warmer longer with the lid on + it restricts the rate of flow in the event of tipping over the cup + I also rather not deal with a wet (from condensation) lid on my work surface + it’s one less thing to think about = keep the lid on.
I think most the coffeeshops I visit have recyclable/compostable lids. @dwarflemur Those are some crazy skills, and I was exactly thinking of drifting on a tofu delivery @Manofinterests haha
