I've been a huge coffee drinker since my high school days -- and have more than a few burn scars to prove it.

It wasn't until a few years ago that I found the safest way to enjoy my morning routine without making a mess or accidentally spilling it on myself.

Instead of using a coffee pot with a practically completely open top, or making my cup of coffee at my Keurig and carrying it to my table or desk, I bought a Keurig Carafe, which lets me brew the coffee directly into the thermos with the lid already on and then walking it over to wherever I'm sitting and pour it in my mug wherever I'm sitting.

This drastically reduced spill accidents which is the last thing you want to happen while you're trying to wake up in the mornings.
