Despite the artistry involved in making a good coffee, a lot of us have to rush this process in order to complete our morning routines on time. This means that we’re often drinking mediocre coffee as we make our way to work, wake the kids up, or do whatever it is we do to get the day started. Sacrificing flavour for convenience in this way takes some of the joy out of our daily routines. It can start us off on the wrong foot, and get us into the habit of neglecting our own needs. Fortunately, a glass keep cup is a great solution to this problem. Simply by using a high-quality, eco coffee cup that preserves your coffee’s flavour, you can start your day with a much more satisfying beverage. Glass travellers will remind you how to really enjoy a cup of coffee without adding any extra time to your morning routine.
While almost everyone enjoys coffee, we each have our own ways of individualising our cups. For one thing, there is a wide range of flavour profiles from which to choose. From fruity and floral to nutty and spicy, there are flavour profiles to suit every palate. Some people prefer the earthy notes of tobacco, leather, cedar or mushroom, while others enjoy buttery caramel or chocolate-y tones. There are also herbal, citrus, and even wine-like varieties for those who are so inclined. These flavour profiles are not mutually exclusive, and a single cup of coffee can exhibit hints of various flavours. The key is to experience a wide range of flavours and determine which combination creates your ideal cup of coffee.
Creating the perfect cup of coffee also means finding the right roast, getting the water at the right temperature, determining your ideal grinder and establishing the right brew method. All of these factors will affect the texture and taste of your brew, and will furthermore have a sizable impact on the quality of the flavour. Once you have perfected the process, you’ll want to do everything you can to preserve the flavour you’ve created. This is where choosing a cup becomes very important.
Since coffee is part of our everyday lives, finding the right cup is actually very important. You will need something that has the durability and convenience required for frequent use, and that can keep your beverage tasting good. Of course, there are pros and cons to every type of beverage holder, and your choice will ultimately depend upon your specific priorities. However, there are certain varieties that stand out as better-quality, while others are considered to be somewhat outdated.
Often used as takeaway coffee cups from cafes, paper cups are a common choice for coffee drinkers. These disposable cups are convenient in the sense that they don’t require cleaning for reuse—you can simply discard the cup once you’ve finished your drink. The downside, however, is that these cups are terrible for the environment. A reusable coffee cup will have a much better impact on delicate Australian ecosystems. Additionally, paper cups can smell when exposed to heat, which can disrupt the drinking experience. They are also less capable of keeping your beverage warm, and can sometimes have a flavour to them that some find off-putting.
The main positive associated with plastic cups is that they are lightweight and easy to carry around. This makes them a nice option for travel. However, plastic cups will actually absorb the odours and flavours of your beverages over time. This can make your coffee smell and taste bad, leading to an unpleasant drinking experience. If you only drink one type of liquid, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue—but generally, plastic cups aren’t as good at providing a pure, uncontaminated flavour. Additionally, plastic cups won’t keep your beverage warm for too long.
Similar to glass coffee cups, ceramic coffee cups are excellent for keeping your coffee warm. As a strong, neutral material, ceramic doesn’t absorb any flavours or odours, and it doesn’t impart them either. This means that the flavour of your coffee won’t be imbued with any other flavours. Ceramic coffee cups are generally more attractive than paper or plastic varieties, coming in a variety of colours, and they are also reusable. Like all reusable options, ceramic cups are better for the environment, better for your health, and better for your wallet.
Glass coffee mugs and cups are among the more modern options out there. Tempered, heat-resistant glass will keep your beverage warm and withstand extremely high temperatures. This means that the glass tea or coffee cup won’t shatter or break, no matter how hot the beverage. Glass reusable coffee cups are also leak-resistant and easy to carry, despite the fact that they are heavier than some other varieties.
Wondering why your coffee tastes different in glass? This is because you are just getting the coffee flavour, and none of the flavour of your cup. Glass coffee cups are designed to keep your beverage’s distinct flavour completely untainted, and they tend not to absorb the flavours of the drink either, so you won’t have to worry about flavours mixing between uses. Furthermore, these cups are incredibly sleek and stylish. Their clean-cut appearance is aesthetically pleasing and timeless, making them a fun gift as well as a practical one. Finally, it is worth noting that glass is generally very easy to recycle, making this material one of the best options for eco-friendly coffee cups.
