The best coffee cup, according to people who drink a lot of coffee

The best coffee cup, according to people who drink a lot of coffee


There’s a secret to a perfect cup of coffee. Yes, obviously good beans, water-coffee ratio and the ideal grind. Sure. But also the right temperature. Some people like it scalding hot. (How will you know you’re alive on a Monday if you’re not giving yourself third-degree burns to galvanize you after a weekend stupor?) Others prefer a pleasant, mellow steam. The National Coffee Association recommends a temperature of 90.5°C to 96°C for a perfect brew.

These porcelain Orion coffee cups provide a thick wall to keep coffee at the right temperature, while the round base allows coffee to settle at the bottom and develop full flavor. These high temperature-fired porcelain Italian coffee cups come in a variety of sizes: 80ml espresso cup (P520), 150ml egg cup (P620) and 220ml egg cup (P650).

For non-coffee drinkers, the cups work for matcha and tea, too
