Coffee, as the good staff used for refreshing, which is the a must-have for many office workers. Some people are accustomed to buy a cup of coffee from Starbucks on the way to work, or order a cup of coffee at breakfast. Even the KFC has added the series of freshly ground coffee to its menu.
If you look at coffee on the world map, things appear to not that simple. If a kind of food wants to gain popularity all over the world, it must have quite strong inclusiveness and plasticity. The making method of coffee can be explored in accordance with the time and the place. In a word, no matter how great the curiosity, the coffee cup can fit all.
And today, I want to talk about the coffee cup held in the hand. When it comes to the coffee cup, in recent years, more and more restaurants which have consciousness of environmental protection will offer some "green discounts" to encourage customers to bring their own coffee cups in order to reduce the waste of disposable cups. This new kind of consumption help us save money as well as express a small kindness to the home of the earth.
The selection principles of choosing the accompanying coffee cup
(1) Selected materials
Generally speaking, the crucial factor that help the coffee cup keep the deliciousness of the drink depends on its thermal and cooling insulation effect. That is to say, its adopted material and design structure play a major role!
In addition, some materials of coffee cups are not suitable for containing coffee, tea and other drinks, and it will be left with a smell which is hard to eliminate. So, from the perspective of thermal and cooling insulation, "stainless steel" and "double glazing" are both good choices.
(2) Size and capacity
We buy coffee cups for drinking conveniently on the way, but it does not mean that the bigger size is better. The favor of coffee which is unable to finish in time will be affected with the passing time.
Thus, it is recommended that choose the capacity of the coffee cup which can suit for the short-time drinking. As to the specific capacity, it is recommended that choose the middle cup in the café, about 350ml for your reference.
The coffee cup is certainly for carrying around to a large extent, especially when we need to go for a long-term travel or do sports. The stability of the carried coffee cup and the beverage inside plays an extremely important role.
The coffee cups are different from the disposable cups, and its cleaning convenience should be considered. Usually, it is recommended that choose the glass-made or ceramic materials.
If you are worried about accidentally breaking it, you can choose the stainless steel! This kind of material is easy to clean. Moreover, it is recommended to choose the cup type with a relatively large cup mouth which is easier to disassemble for being easy to clean.
At present, there are a large number of disposable coffee cups are dumped ever year in the world, which will cause huge waste. It is said that in Britain, 2.5billion disposable cups are dropped each year, which "is enough to circle the earth for fie and a half rounds".
Let's start from today, say goodbye to disposable cups and use our own coffee cups to drink coffee. This is a small act of kindness that we can do for our homeland of earth.
