Coffee cup type and purchase knowledge
Most people often cannot correctly distinguish the difference between a coffee cup and a red cup. Usually, in order to spread the fragrance of black tea, and to enjoy the color of black tea, the cup has a shallower cup, a wider cup and a higher light transmission, while the coffee cup has a narrower cup and a thicker material. And the light transmittance is low.
1, coffee cup type
Coffee cups generally have two types of pottery cups. In recent years, under the concept that coffee must be heated and heated, the cup makers even cooperated with this kind of stress to develop pottery cups with thermal insulation effect, even better than porcelain cups. The bone china cup, using the bone china cup containing the animal ashes in the texture, can make the temperature of the coffee in the cup slow down. However, because its price is much higher than the previous two, the average family is rarely used, only in the more versatile cafes.
2, coffee cup color
The coffee liquid is amber in color and very clear. So in order to show the characteristics of coffee, it is best to use a white coffee cup in the cup. Some neglecting this problem in production, the various colors on the interior of the coffee cup, and even the depiction of complex fine patterns often make it difficult for us to distinguish the coffee brewing from the coffee color.

When choosing a coffee cup, you can choose according to the type of coffee and the method of drinking, and then with your personal preferences and drinking occasions. In general, pottery cups are more suitable for deep-fried and full-bodied coffee, while porcelain cups are suitable for coffee with a lighter taste. In addition, the use of small coffee cups of less than 100 cc is generally used for drinking Italian coffee, while the coffee with higher milk, such as latte or French milk coffee, uses a mug without cup holder. In terms of personal preference, in addition to the appearance of the cup, it is necessary to take it up and see if it is convenient, so that it will be convenient and comfortable when used. The weight of the cup is suitable for light weight selection, because the lighter cup has a dense texture, and the texture is dense, indicating that the raw material of the cup is fine, and the surface of the cup is tight and the pores are small, so that the coffee scale is not easily attached.

As for the cleaning of the coffee cup, due to the excellent quality of the coffee cup, the cup surface is tight, the pores are small, and it is not easy to adhere to the coffee scale. Therefore, after drinking the coffee, as long as it is rinsed with water immediately, the cup can be kept clean. After long-term use of the coffee cup, or if it is not washed out immediately after use, the coffee scale adheres to the surface of the cup. At this time, the cup can be soaked in lemon juice to remove the coffee scale. If you can't completely remove the coffee scale at this time, use a neutral dishwashing detergent, damp it on the sponge, gently wipe it, and then rinse it off with water. During the cleaning process of the coffee cup, it is strictly forbidden to use a hard brush to scrub, and to avoid the use of strong acid and alkali detergent to avoid scratching the surface of the coffee cup.
Coffee VS cup size dependent cleaning
Many times, from the size of the coffee cup, you can roughly judge the intensity of a cup of coffee.
The size of coffee cups is generally divided into three types:
*Small coffee cups below 100CC - mostly used to hold strong Italian or single-serve coffee, such as espresso with only about 50cc, although almost a bite to drink, but the lingering aftertaste, and seems to be always warm The temperature is the most gentle and gastrointestinal. The cappuccino with milk foam has a slightly larger capacity than espresso, and the wide cup mouth can display a rich and beautiful foam.
* About 200cc of ordinary coffee cups - the most common coffee cups, light American coffee, choose more cups, there is enough space, you can make your own, add creamer and sugar.
* More than 300cc mugs or French Ou Lei special milk coffee cups - coffee with a lot of milk, like latte, American Mocha, and more mugs, is enough to accommodate its sweet and varied taste. The romantic Frenchman used to use a large bowl of milk coffee (Ou Lei coffee), rendering the mood of the whole morning.
Judging the difference between the cup and the coffee cup from the shape and size, there are still traces to follow.
Usually, in order to preserve the richness of the coffee and reduce the evaporation of temperature, the coffee cup is narrow and the cup is thick. The red cups are mostly wide and transparent, reflecting the clear and transparent brown color.
Pottery and porcelain, frustration VS elegant dialogue
The simplicity of pottery, and the mellowness of porcelain, each telling different coffee reviews. Some people like to use the thick and pottery cups to hold the masculine deep-roasted coffee, but most people still use porcelain cups to interpret the fineness of coffee.
Among them, the bone china made of high-grade porcelain clay and mixed animal bone powder has a light texture, soft color, high heat preservation, and can best retain the warm memory of coffee.
Put the coffee in a cup of just the right temperature, the warmth of the mood, of course, with a warm cup to hold.
The warm cup, although only a simple step, is the key to preserve the coffee. Because, just after the boiling coffee, once poured into a cold cup, the temperature suddenly drops, the fragrance will be greatly reduced.
In your own temperature cup, the easiest way is to flush directly into the hot water or put it in the dryer to warm it up. If you entertain a table at the same time, you can burn a pot of water and invade all the cups together.
Before tasting coffee, don't forget to warm up a cup of good heat and completely seal all the flavors of coffee.

Drinking coffee is a habit and is a matter of course. But for a good cup of coffee, in addition to careful baking and ingenious handling techniques, coffee cups also play an extremely important role.
The most basic one, coffee cups must not react chemically with coffee, so active metals must not be used as coffee cups (of course if you want to pursue alternative tastes) such as aluminum cups. The cup of the coffee cup should be thick and the cup should not be wide and the cup should make the heat of the coffee condense, and it is not easy to cool down quickly, so as not to affect the taste and taste of the coffee.
Traditional coffee cups can be divided into three types.
The first type is a small coffee cup with a capacity of less than 100 ml, containing 50-70 ml of coffee;
The second type is a general coffee cup with a capacity of less than 200 ml, and the amount of coffee is between 150-180 ml;
