Coffee Cups

How do different materials affect taste?

Just like a glass of wine tastes better from a wine glass and a beer from a beer jug, selecting the appropriate cup for your coffee will have an impact on its taste.

After you get the right equipment, fresh coffee beans, gooseneck kettle, appropriate filters, and scales, the correct coffee cup can be a cherry on top of your perfect coffee-drinking experience.


Does the shape of your cup affect the taste?

The coffee cups work together with your senses to elevate your experience. While rounded cups can enhance sweetness, tulip-shaped cups intensify the aromas. The material of the cup can also have an effect on temperature stability.


How do different materials impact the taste of coffee?

We don’t assume that you would reach for a plastic glass when brewing your coffee, but whether you’re brewing a filter coffee or a latte, carefully selecting the optimal material for your chosen beverage can improve your experience.
