How to Choose the Right Coffee Cup

If there’s one lesson to be taken from drinking coffee with colleagues at the office, it’s not to use someone else’s cup. Although there’s a chance they’re not that attached to it, in many cases people have picked one because they like it, and/or are sentimental about it. Perhaps it’s a good time to explore finding one for yourself. Doing so doesn’t have to mean a trip to the nearest supermarket, grabbing the first one you lay eyes on. By choosing one with the right intentions, the right cup will land up in the kitchen cupboard at work in no time at all. 

Coffee Cup Types to Consider

There are many different coffee cup types to consider, including a traditional option, thermos, travel mug, moustache cup and more. You also have a lot of room to play with in terms of the materials they come in, including the likes of ceramic, porcelain, glass, stoneware and stainless steel. Start by thinking about where you will be using the cup, before whittling down the options across these to start your actual search. Before you jump right in, you should probably think about how small or big you’re gonna go first.

Exploring Different Sizes

Choosing the right size comes down to thinking about how much coffee you drink and how often. Are you a fan of a couple of small cups during the course of the day? Or prefer to have two or three big ones during breaks from work? Thinking about this will help with finding the right size, as well as making sure you don’t have to look at types that don’t cater to this. You might even want to buy a few different options to cater to different times at the office, or as you split your coffee needs between home and work.

Home vs. Office Use

It’s true that there are a ton of coffee cup designs out on the market. Choosing the right cup doesn’t only have to be restricted to your office cuppa. Do the same exercise at home, to make sure you cover your bases there too. You may have a very different coffee routine in your living space. You should also think about practical options that are good for visitors, as you don’t want to be left scrambling when the in-laws pop round for a surprise visit. Standard sets should do the trick for this.
