Best Answer

The cold-water pipe chills the air immediately surrounding it. The cold air cannot support the same amount of moisture that warm air can, so the water vapor condenses out and sticks to the pipe.

Why doesn't a cup of coffee sweat?

'Sweat' on a cup is caused by condensation of moisture on the air on a cold surface. Cold causes the air to lose its ability to hold as much moisture. Since coffee is hot, it is increasing the ability of the air to hold moisture. You will only get the sweat on a cold drink. And the air in your house in winter is very dry, so there is not much to condense on cold items.
