Ahead of delivering the mini-budget in the Commons on Wednesday, the Chancellor was photographed poring over the final details in his office.
And though it’s normally all eyes on Rishi as he delivers updates on the coronavirus situation, this time it was all eyes on the travel mug sitting beside him on the desk.
Deputy Political Editor at The Times, Steven Swinford was quick to tweet about just how impressive the mug actually is.
In short, this is the fanciest reusable coffee cup we’ve ever seen– and so it should be for the price.

Rishi Sunak has a smart mug which keeps your tea at the *exact* same temperature for three hours
It even comes with a 'charging coaster'

Not only does the £159 Ember Temperature Control Travel Mug maintain your preferred temperature (with both suggested and customisable presets), but it also shows when the contents have reached that temperature, so you don’t burn yourself. Genius, right?

The whole thing is controlled via a nifty app that includes brewing timers for tea, suggested presets for a latte, green tea, cappuccinos and many more features besides.
There’s also an interesting recipe section in case you get bored of your regular Americano, with ideas for a cinnamon matcha latte and a beetroot latte amongst others.
The other interesting aspect of the app is that it tracks your caffeine intake. You can then upload the information to Apple Health, along with your heart rate and sleep data. Although we’d prefer not to know the exact quantities of caffeine we’re consuming right now.
And, don’t worry, if you can’t justify splashing out £150 on a mug right now, we’ve found some affordable alternatives to keep you going.
