Kozy Kool

As the ghostwriter behind these features I endeavor to follow the unwritten laws of anonymity: Never step out of character. Be heard and not seen. Keep Oz behind the curtain at all costs. In this case, however, I’m making an exception. “Get over yourself,” my wife told me today. “I need an intervention, and you know it.” And so, for the first and probably last time, I will shift to the first-person, husband form to tell you all the truth: Tara has a coffee problem. This addiction is the primary reason I hesitate to extol the all-too-charming, frighteningly practical, earth-loving virtues of the Cup Kozy. You see, I know where this will lead. “We need to stop by Starbucks for a sec,” I can hear her saying. “I’ve got to see if my Cup Kozy fits their grande cups.” It won’t stop there, either. “Coffee Girls downtown uses a cup with a narrow contour,” she’ll ruminate casually the moment we hit the road. “Would you have thirty minutes to cross the bridge and back?”


And on it will go, and on and on until she has experimentally sleeved every cup in Kansas City from the Westport Coffeehouse to the kiosk manned by that hooded shot-pulling bean pusher just off the Bottoms. But alas, I am an enabler. And so I must admit, I’ll probably take her wherever she wants to go to prove the character of these fuzzy, formidable little hand savers. The Cup Kozy’s insulating fabric is light and sustainable, and even the tags and handy keyring hooked into it are made from recyclable materials. If earth-conscious were a fashion quality, these babies would steal the runway—but the truth is, they’re awfully cute in their own right. And since free is the only way to top fabulous, you’ll be thrilled to know that the makers of this product are giving away a free Cup Kozy in any non-printed color variety (Heather Grey, Moss Green, or Black ) to three lucky winners.

I would love a Heather Gray/Pink cozy! My Tim Hortons coffee is always INCREDIBLY hot on the hands as they have no cardboard cozy's and ususally grumble if you ask them to double-cup it. I would love one!
