Enjoying a cup of coffee is the result of a laborer picking the choicest beans, a manufacturer crafting a fine coffee machine, filtered water, and the perfect cup to put it all in. Never thought about the cup? Well, the coffee cup is the last place that sees the coffee or espresso before you drink it. It has to be of the right type or the drink loses something.
This doesn’t mean that it is wrong to drink coffee from that same travel mug you have used for years, but it does mean that the experience can be better if a cup dedicated to the experience is used. Most gas station coffee mugs can house any beverage with equanimity, but only specialty coffee cups made for cappuccino or espresso can provide the experience as it was meant to be.
What is different about coffee cups made for the coffee or espresso drinking experience? They are made from either ceramic or glass and never from plastic. Plastic compounds are not as stable as glass and ceramic, so they break down as they are used. This tends to add unwanted flavors to the coffee. Some dedicated cups are made double walled so that they can be held comfortably even while they are holding a hot beverage. But this is not only for the consumer; it is for the coffee as well. Coffee should be consumed at a specific range of temperatures for optimum taste and a single walled cup may let the heat escape too fast.
The range of coffee cups online at 1st in Coffee is meant to satisfy the discerning coffee consumer, regardless of the drink preference. Cappuccino, espresso, standard and specialty coffee cups are available along with arty designs and fun accessories. For example:
Elektra Cappuccino Cups – cappuccino cups are somewhat larger than the traditional espresso cup since the milk adds some volume. These specialty coffee cups by Elektra are the same traditional type you will find in any coffee shop. They are made of porcelain, so they are durable and will not alter the taste of the drink.
Bodum Bistro Double Wall Glass Mugs – these coffee cups online are the same double wall design that Bodum is famous for.
