There are few things better than a delicious cup of coffee. That gentle aroma, as you bring your coffee cup or glass to your face; that first sip, as you appreciate the flavours for the first time; that oh-so-satisfying mouthfeel; and that aftertaste that lingers on your tongue…
But, what if your choice of cup, mug, or glass was preventing you from enjoying the full effect of that exceptional specialty coffee? And conversely, what if it could make your coffee taste even better?
Ceramic, wood, paper, metal, plastic, glass… whichever material your drinking vessel is made of, it will have a direct impact on the heat retention and temperature stability of coffee.
Café Creme And Filter Coffee
For these two drinks, cups with a capacity of 0.18 l to 0.22 l are the right choice, as there is also enough space in such containers for a shot of cream or milk and sugar. Both in terms of height and width, coffee cups are in a balanced relationship in contrast to tea cups, for example, which are not high, but wide and rather bowl-like.
Café Au Lait And Milk Coffee
For all coffee variations that are prepared with plenty of hot milk like these two specialties, the following applies: A cup size with a volume of 0.25 l to 0.35 l is ideal.
And The Espresso Cup?
The barista brews a really excellent espresso at around 92 degrees Celsius. It is usually drunk as hot as possible. Therefore, it should always be served in a narrow, small cup, with a volume of 0.07 l to 0.11 l. This way the temperature can be ideally maintained. The special kick lies in the specially preheated cup.
This pleasure consists of frothed milk with an espresso. The trick of this specialty is, that the individual components of the drink must not mix with one another. The lover of this drink would rather be able to recognize the individual layers in the vessel. Therefore, a thick-walled glass and a special long-handled spoon are the appropriate “equipment” for such delicacies.
Caffè Latte Is The Same As Latte Macchiato Or Not?
This delicacy also consists of milk and espresso. The stylish coffee lover can use a wide bowl without a handle for true enjoyment.
Special Cappuccino Cups
A thick-walled and preheated cup is the right utensil, whereby the diameter of the cappuccino cup should always open upwards. It is only with such a construction that the characteristic turbulence occurs when the foaming milk is poured in. Artfully and professionally “draped”, this skill is rightly also called “latte art”.
Which Material Is Suitable For Coffee Cups?
A glass–walled tumbler is perfect because it has many advantages. On the one hand, it is of high quality and extremely durable. On the other hand, it keeps the coffee warm for a particularly long time, but still makes it drinkable even at high preparation temperatures. Such a coffee cup also has a lot to offer from an aesthetic point of view, because it is elegant and timelessly beautiful. Ceramics can also be used for coffee cups. There are also designer cups made of cardboard, plastic or wood in circulation, whereby the focus here is certainly more on form than function.
There is a special container for every coffee preparation. It is high quality.
- Has a great longevity.
- It keeps the coffee warm for a long time.
- It still makes the drink drinkable despite the high preparation temperatures.
