The Design History of Coffee Cup Lids

You may have not thought of the fact that there is a remarkable design hidden in the hundreds of millions of lids all over the world, and love and creativity are also preeminent.


1. The functions of the coffee cup lid


The coffee lid is used for covering your coffee cup with a click sound. There is a drinking mouth on it with snaps which can be closed or opened. In the meanwhile, the lid also has various creative shapes, and the coffee lid has its own vocabulary.


People will say some words such as the dyed skirt, slight ripples, fragrance, fluttering breath and so on. It is necessary to use these words for their hidden ideas and creativity, which make people very comfortable.


Our society is more and more dynamic with everything motivating. From a bright perspective, the coffee cup lid is thought to be very convenient.


You can drink coffee anywhere instead of definitely staying at the formal table. You can drink on the subway as well as walk. From a disadvantaged perspective, drinking while walking is hard to really enjoy a cup of coffee.


2. The design process of the coffee cup lid


The first patented coffee lid was invented in 1934 and is exclusively used for cold drinks. In 1950, a man named James Reifsnyder invented the first removable lid, but without a drinking mouth.


In the 1960s, cultural upheavals occurred, and people began to drink coffee while walking. 7-Eleven was the first store that sold the coffee which can be taken away.


At that time, the revolution began. In 1967, a man named Frank invented a kind of cup lid which can be pulled open and was shaped look like a guitar paddle to drink coffee.


In 1975, the development of the lid achieved unprecedented improvement. The paddle can be pulled and fixed on the lid, so nowadays more and more people began to drink coffee which can be taken away.


1984 was a watershed in the history of the coffee cup lid, in which the travel-specific lid with the icon was invented.


You may have seen it thousands of times, which has also solved innumerable problems. Its special design prevents the coffee from splashing on your face because it has a higher drinking mouth than other cup lids.


It has a protruding edge so that the coffee can be slightly cooled when reaches the mouth. The middle part of the cup lid has a small groove left for the nose in order to make people drink more conveniently and enjoy the good taste of the coffee.


Also, there is a quite small exhaust hole to prevent the internal breath from not circulating, which is noticed when the coffee drips on your knees. Therefore, the coffee lid will continue to develop and reform, and you may see the progress that the plastic lids are turned into the zero waste eco lids.


Where life is unstoppable, there is unrelenting love for coffee. The original attempt of the cup lid designers is to experience drinking while walking, which is the same good as enjoying coffee with a ceramic cup while sitting in a restaurant. As you know, in fact, drinking coffee is quite enjoyable.
