I don't know the answer to the two minutes plus 2 seconds microwave question, but I have been known to do that very thing to make the lazy susan spin the item closer to me... I hate those twirly things. I know they improve efficiency, but I'm not tall, and my microwave is in a very awkward place (the pantry!) because my kitchen is ridiculously small for such a huge house.
Any coffee not steaming hot fresh from the pot should be poured into the sink and the coffee making ritual must begin again. Anyone reheating coffee is probably satisfied with instant, too, or (gasp) cold coffee from yesterday.
