The difference between a coffee cup and a teacup:


For coffee cups, some people prefer to use the rich texture of the pottery cup, containing masculine strong dark roast coffee.

However,, people still use ceramic cups to interpret the delicate flavor of coffee.


Most people who are new to coffee tend to confuse the coffee cup with the red cup when choosing a cup.

Usually red tea cup in order to make the aroma of black tea can spread, and convenient to appreciate the color of black tea, so the bottom of the cup is lighter, the mouth is wider, the light transmittance is higher.

Coffee e cups, on the other hand, are narrower, thicker and less transparent.


There are two kinds of coffee cups, pottery cup and porcelain cup.

The idea that coffee must be drunk hot prevails.

In keeping with this concept, cup makers developed ceramic cups with thermal insulation and bone China cups that were better than the porcelain cups.

The use of this bone China cup containing 25% animal bone powder, light texture, strong light transmittance, soft color, high density, good heat preservation, can make the coffee in the cup to lower the temperature more slowly.

But t because bone China cup is more expensive than pottery cup and porcelain cup, so the general family rarely used, only in more exquisite coffee shop can be seen.


In addition, the color of the coffee cup is also very important.


The color of coffee is a clear amber color, so in order to show this characteristic of coffee, it is better to use a white coffee cup inside the cup.

Some makers ignored the problem, painting the inside of the cups with various colors and even painting them with delicate patterns.

This may make the cup more ornamental, but it is often difficult to tell the finished brewing and quality of the coffee by the color of the coffee.


When choosing a coffee cup, you can choose according to the type of coffee and drinking method, according to personal preferences and drinking occasions and other conditions.

Since e personal preference and drinking occasion depend on each individual, here I only offer a few choices on the type of coffee and how to drink it.


Generally speaking, the ceramic cup is suitable for the coffee with deep roasting and rich taste, while the porcelain cup is suitable for the coffee with light taste.

In addition, drinking Espresso usually USES a special coffee cup below 100CC.

When drinking a latte with a higher proportion of milk, or a grande dame's coffee, use a mug without a holder.

In addition to the appearance of the cup, it also depends on whether it is easy to pick up, the weight is appropriate.

In terms of weight, it is better to use the lighter cup, because the cup has a fine texture, which represents the fine grain of raw materials for making coffee cup, so the cup surface is tight and the gap is small, which makes it difficult for coffee dirt to adhere to the cup surface.


As for the coffee cup cleaning.

Generally, just rinse with water immediately after drinking the coffee.

And the coffee dirt on the surface of coffee cup that is used for a long time and cannot be rinsed in time can be removed by soaking in lemon juice.

If it can't be cleaned thoroughly, use a neutral dishwashing liquid to clean it and place it on a sponge.

But never use a hard brush.

Also do not use strong acid and alkali cleaning fluid, so as not to scratch the cup.
