    Wow, it’s hilarious how obvious that is and hilarious that nobody does it. Or at least, hardly anybody. I also recommend this with your teabag. Prevents the annoying “bobbing” you get from trying to wedge it in afterwards.

    Nice…if you are only adding cream. He didn’t add sugar. How would the sugar dissolve adequately with that method?

    If you mix the sugar with some cream, pour it in the cup, then add coffee, OK…but you still had to use a stirrer to mix the sugar with the cream.
