1. Size Matters

Each coffee drinkers have different preferences when it comes to choosing mugs. Some of us preferred large mugs over small coffee mugs. Large mugs are for those people who drink coffee one after the other, some coffee drinkers like a medium size of mugs and others like it small just enough coffee shot to start up their day.

2. With or Without a Lid

Coffee drinkers who prefer mugs with lid are those people who are on the go who want to retain heat and keep away dirt from their coffee.While other like to keep their coffee without the lid to make their coffee a little bit cooler just enough to sip their coffee.

3. Material

Porcelain, ceramic, plastic, stainless steel, glass, etc.—there’s quite a lot of mug material to choose from. Based on passionate coffee drinkers’ experiences, porcelain, plastic and stainless steel tend to retain the odor and sometimes even the taste of a beverage that’s previously been placed there. Unlike ceramic and glass, you can easily wash away without worries of flavor retention. In addition, ceramic and glass are also effective in prolonging the warm temperature of your coffee as compared to other ones.

You have now your coffee mug it’s only a matter of preparing the perfect coffee blend.

For exceptional taste and a perfect temperature for your warm coffee, place your mug on top of your espresso machine and let its boiler heat your cup. This way, your drink will still be perfectly warm as it is being transferred on to the cup. With these tips in mind, you can be your own barista and you never have to drink just a basic cup of coffee again!
