Different types of coffee need to be matched with coffee cups of different materials, so what are the materials of coffee cups? Let’s introduce them next.
1. Porcelain cup: the most common coffee utensil. There are white china, bone china, etc. The surface is smooth, the texture is light, the color is soft, and the glaze can be applied with different colors and patterns. Among them, bone china is even more thin and transparent. Porcelain cups are the most widely applicable. For specialty coffee, white porcelain cups are the most conducive to observing the color concentration of coffee liquid.
2. Pottery cup: Made of clay, the surface is relatively rough, the texture is strong, and it has a sense of simplicity and Zen. A favorite of coffee gamers who seek a sense of culture and history. The disadvantage is that the coffee scale is easier to adhere to the surface of the cup, which is not conducive to cleaning.
3. Glass: The whole body is transparent, and the double-layer glass has better thermal insulation effect. And using it to hold fancy coffee such as espresso and latte, macchiato, can well show the layering of coffee.
4. Plastic cups: The temperature of coffee is usually high. When drinking coffee with plastic or paper cups, the smell of the cup is very likely to destroy the original taste of the coffee and affect the taste of the coffee. The harmful substances contained in these materials are also released to harm health, and they are not environmentally friendly.
