The essence of coffee cups

Some people say that a cup of coffee fosters a cup of mood, and there are many coffee cups, like an ocean of moods, undulating with people's various emotions. How many cups do you have in your collection? Have you ever sipped a warm coffee while you were alone at night, listening to the turbulent voice of the heart? From the coffee cup that warms your mood, what else can you get besides the mood of coffee? Many times, from the size of the coffee cup, you can more or less tell the strength of the cup of coffee.


Warming the cup, although it is only a simple step, is an indispensable key to preserving the aroma of the drink. Because once the boiling coffee that has just come out of oven goes into a cold cup, the temperature will drop suddenly, and the aroma will be greatly reduced. The easiest way to warm the cup is to pour directly into hot water, or pre-warm them in a dishwasher. If you are entertaining a table of guests at the same time, you can boil a pot of water and immerse all the cups together into it.


Nowadays, many people like to use coffee cups made of bone china. In fact, its ingredients are made of 25% bone meal and 75% high-grade porcelain clay. It is characterized by light texture (weight), strong light transmittance, soft color and high density (easy Broken, easy to clean), high temperature resistance (good heat preservation). The way to judge in choosing is: the color turns yellow under the light, and there is a crisp metal sound when beating it slightly. Also pay attention to the maintenance - it is best to wash by hand, and for the people using is not often can get the dishwasher; the pH of the lotion must be between 11-11.5, the water temperature should not exceed 158℉ (70 ℃) when washing in the dishwasher, and 176℉ (80 ℃) when washing with clean water, and be careful not to immerse the cup directly in cold water to avoid rapid temperature changes.


Usually, in order to retain the rich aroma of coffee and reduce temperature evaporation, the coffee cup has a narrow mouth and a thick body. Most of the cups for black tea have a wider mouth and high light transmittance to reflect the clear and transparent brown color. Size, generally divided into three types: 100cc, 200cc and 300cc.


Small coffee cups under 100cc - mostly used to hold strong and hot Italian or single-origin coffee, such as Espresso, which is only about 50cc and can be drunk almost in one sip, but the lingering mellowness after taste, together with the forever warmness, is the best to warm the mood and stomach. The Cappuccino cup with milk foam has a slightly larger capacity than the Espresso, and the wide cup can show the rich and beautiful foam.


For ordinary coffee cups around 200cc, the most common coffee cups, such as light Americano prefer them, as there is enough space of it, and you can mix it yourself to add creamer or sugar. Mugs above 300cc or the special milk Coffee cup of French Oule- with a lot of milk, such as latte, American mocha, usually take mugs that are enough to accommodate its sweet and diverse taste. And romantic French usually use a large bowl of milk coffee (Oulei coffee), rendering the excited mood that lasted all the morning. Judging from the shape and size of the difference between tea cups and coffee cups, there are still traces to follow.


The simplicity of pottery and the mellowness of porcelain get different coffee comments. Some people like to use rich-textured pottery cups to hold masculine and strong dark-roasted coffee, but most people still use porcelain cups to interpret the delicate and mellow coffee. The bone china made from mixed animal bone powder and high-grade porcelain clay, features a light texture, soft color, and high heat retention, which can best retain the warmness of coffee.
