Have you ever in that situation when you want to have tea and coffee or soda and water at the same time but without carrying two mugs with you? If you ever had that need, then “Twin Carafe” might be your solution. Crafted out of glass, with just the most perfect frosted finish, the Twin carafe holds two drinks at once.
