FWIW, many coffees have the most amazing tastes as they cool to room 
temperature. Reheat a cup? Never. If it isn't good cold it likely wasn't 
that good to begin with!
Of course large is relative in the US. If you're talking those 1qt, 2qt and 
even bigger coffee mugs...

The coffee there is served in small cups.  I've collected large coffee
mugs over the years and now barely use them.  Coffee served in large
mugs needs to be reheated often, if you don't drink it fast enough
with a result degradation in flavor.  Therefore, I now use my few
smaller cups for coffee and my large mugs stay in the cupboard.
Luckily, we were able to buy some smaller cups in Germany with the
family crest on them.  All my beliefs about coffee have been turned on
their head since I started home roasting.
Take care,

I tend to not even really get into drinking the cup until it cools.  Not
because it's too hot, but because that is the only time I can really get the
flavor of the coffee to register on my palate.

Funny thing is I drink my morning cup of coffee from 8am when it is an
hour old until at least 1pm when it's quite cool, but I would never do
that at home.  Not sure why.  I know when I first started home
roasting and using my leak proof mug, I was constantly burning my
mouth.  I had a hard time actually tasting the coffee as my tongue was
numb.  I took a month or so, but I learned to let it cool a bit. 
Flavors become so much more distinct.  Now I just wish I had the words
to describe what I'm tasting.

I find that with good coffee, I like the taste both hot and cold.  They are 
different, but I like them both.  I never re-heat my coffee.
In fact, I have tried day old coffee (CRLM) and while it does not taste 
like it did fresh, it was...... interesting.  More chocolate 
maybe.  Heresy, I know.  But there it is.

I know what u mean, I would love to be able to describe what I tasted in my fruity cup of 7:00 City roasted Mbaranga this morning.  ALl I could say was WOW!!  It tatsed like a bunch of fruit in my mouth tainted with great coffee.  And that is as far as my descriptions go. ;-)

That is it exactly.  I finally have a cup that is large enough so that it 
is just cooling by the time I finish.  It is 16 oz.  Less than that and I 
am refilling way to often.  And like you said, more and it cools (which 
also is not a problem).
