The temperature of a cup of coffee is a discrete or continuous random variable?
Am I correct " Discrete"

If you put a thermometer in a cup of coffee and watched it, would it jump to different temperatures or move continuously to different temperatures?

I'm sorry my bad I got confused I ment continuous random
