Coffee mugs or mugs come in many sizes, shapes and materials. Choosing the best coffee mug from so many options can seem difficult.
Materials of coffee cups.
The three most common types of cups are ceramic, glass and metal. They each have advantages and disadvantages. Ceramic is the most common material used to make coffee cups. Hey tend to be affordable, but they can crack or chip if handled roughly or exposed to hot liquids or sinks. Ceramic mugs are dishwasher safe and can be heated in the microwave.
Glass mugs come in many shapes, sizes and styles. Many people prefer glass coffee mugs because they can see the colour and clarity of the drink. However, most glass mugs on the market are too light or too fragile to actually use. In addition, glass does not conduct heat very well, so it does not keep the drink warm.
For this reason, we have introduced our iconic coffee and wine tasting glasses made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is ideal for long-term use. It will not crack when exposed to extreme heat or cold. The double wall provides excellent thermal insulation. These mugs look beautiful and are easy to stack.
Stainless steel is another good material for coffee mugs. They are durable, insulate quite well and certainly do not rust. However, metal cups are not dishwasher safe.
Melamine or stoneware are some of the other materials used for coffee mugs.
The most common size of coffee cup is 12oz. This is usually the standard size for restaurants and cafes. However, an average person may only need 8 to 10 ounces of coffee, depending on how strong you like it. If you want a single serving, or if you prefer to take your coffee slower, you can use a smaller cup.
Also, smaller cups are ideal for home-brewed coffee as they can be easily refilled. If you plan to use it on the go, a larger mug will suit you.
Another thing to consider when choosing a coffee mug is its height from the bottom to the mouth of the cup. A taller cup will allow more coffee grounds to form inside the cup, which will improve the aroma of the coffee. However, taller cups are inconvenient for people who only need a few sips.
If it's just you and your partner, you may find it more relaxing to enjoy your coffee in a two-handled mug. However, if you are making coffee for a large group of people, you should opt for a single-handled mug. Without too many handles, it will be easy to serve coffee to everyone.
Another type of coffee mug is the travel mug. They usually have a lid to prevent spillage, or have a rubber handle so they are easy to carry around. These are great for people who are always on the move and need to transport their drinks.
Even if you're not a frequent traveller, you should still carry your own cup. Using disposable cups instead of reusable ones is harmful to the environment in more ways than one.
Coffee machine compatibility.
Before you buy a coffee mug, you also need to check that it is compatible with your coffee machine. Some coffee machines are designed to make optimal use of coffee cups. As a result, only certain models of machines will work.
The main function of a coffee cup is obviously to hold the liquid, but it may also come with additional functions such as temperature control. These devices can be connected to your smartphone and maintain a set temperature. You can also opt for a personalised mug, a mug with a lid, or a silicone sleeve.
While these features are good options, it is best to prioritise your needs and choose a mug that will effectively meet your requirements.
