Reusable coffee cups have become more prevalent now in homes and office spaces than disposable cups. The damage to the environment is one factor that led many to choose reusable coffee cups but they have a lot of other advantages as well.
Two of the most commonly used reusable coffee cups are glass coffee cups and ceramic cups. Both of them have several properties that make drinking coffee a much enjoyable experience. Yet when comparing these two, the advantages of glass coffee cups outweigh more than that of a ceramic cup. Due to this, glass coffee cups have become more popular and thus are an excellent way to drink coffee.
Glass coffee cups are now the primary means of serving coffee in many cafes and restaurants across the world, besides finding their use in homes. Below are a few benefits of glass coffee cups that all coffee lovers should know.
Glass is a material that has much higher design possibilities than ceramic. The transparent nature of glass provides a view of the contents poured inside, which is aesthetically pleasing in its own way. Due to this, glass coffee cups are visually more appealing than the ones made from ceramic.
Glass cups can be shaped from simple to highly complex forms during manufacturing. Moreover, different types of glass materials are used for making glass cups that have unique internal structures, which makes them more appealing than other types of coffee cups.
Glass coffee cups have high heat retention capacity that is on par with that of a ceramic variety. The material used in glass allows heat to transfer slowly in the form of conduction or convention, thereby preventing the loss of heat quickly. This heat retention capacity is a clear benefit of using a glass cup, as coffee tastes better if consumed hot. The adoption of new materials in making glass has further increased this heat retaining capacity.
A unique advantage of glass cups is that they are highly recyclable. This means that glass coffee cups have the least impact on the environment. Glass is a material that can be recycled many times and the resources for recycling them are widely available in almost every region. Ceramic cups, on the other hand, cannot be recycled, which gives glass a distinctive advantage over them in terms of the environmental impact.
In addition to the above features, glass is also more durable than ceramic due to its manufacturing process and therefore lasts longer. The thickness and geometry of glass coffee cups can be varied as well, that provides a different range of durability to the material. Glass is also much easier to hold and offers more grip while drinking coffee.
