Things To Consider When Buying A Coffee Mug

Whenever we are onto buying something, there are certain aspects to consider before picking or finalizing. Coffee mug is a small thing, but there are few aspects I look in for –

Heat Retention

A coffee mug should have the capacity to keep your coffee for sometime. Many people sip coffee to spent some good time with friends or sometimes with themselves. So if you are a person with patience and who enjoys coffee really, this aspect should not be neglected.

Material

Which material is the mug made up of is one of the most important thing to look for. The Glass Mugs are the most common ones and are non-porous, which means they won’t retain or sip some flavors from your coffee. They are also microwavable, so we can reheat without transferring into some other thing.

The next is Steel Mugs, which is again one of the most used form and are non-porous. They are able to keep your coffee hot for a longer span and are most durable ones. But, steel mugs are not microwavable so you have to transfer coffee to other for reheat.

Next material is Ceramic, it’s not durable and is a porous, so it’s going to eat some of your taste profile, not much but some. With porous we mean that they can retain flavors from your older drink, so one should use these mugs for a single drink. These are mostly microwavable and come in many fancy designs to keep you attracted.

The last one in our list is plastic, which I mostly avoid due to confusing science about ABS. Some say avoid even if it’s ABS and some say ABS is safe. Anyways, it’s a durable one and lightweight material but don’t use it in microwaves.

Size

Another important aspect is size. How much coffee do you drink usually at one go? Ask yourself about these and it’s a very simple one to judge. If you are buying a mug for travel, I suggest to go with coffee thermos which are made for that purpose. They are usually tall, a little large than usual and can slip in to most of the pockets.

Usually mugs come in size of 12 oz, 16 oz or 24 oz and the middleman is most common, that is 16 oz. 24 oz is for people with deep love to coffee.

Comfortable Handle or Grip

To hold the mug comfortably, this is another useful aspect. If you won’t be able to hold the mug correctly, how are you going to enjoy the time.

Weight

If the mug is too heavy, you won’t be able to hold it for long. We sometimes drink coffee standing in the balcony where there is nothing to keep the mug aside. In that case, we have to hold it for long and so, it should be ideal weight.

Durability

This is the least factor I consider. A ceramic mug can never be durable but these are the most common material. If you are a travelholic person, then you must consider some other material so that it lasts longer and doesn’t breaks on way.

And of course, the Looks!

Obviously to feel good and make others jealous. A good mug is pampered and sipping coffee feels a lot good whenever someone says – Nice Mug Babe!

People are often confused when they are searching a mug for travel purpose – instead they should search for a Travel Thermos as they come with insulating feature and many sizes to suit your purpose.

FAQs

Do ceramic mugs break easily?

Well, many of these will break easily like if they fell down. Few of these are stronger but still, ceramic is prone to break easily as compared to other materials.

What is the difference between Porcelain and Ceramic?

The main difference between both is Ceramic is the major category and Porcelain is one of them. The ceramic mugs can be anyone as pottery, stoneware, earthenware or porcelain. The porcelain actually differs from other categories because of the process and material.  They are made from kaolin clay which is processed at 2600 Fahrenheit. The porcelain mugs are usually thin walled, translucent and fragile. But they have great finish and look great. Other ceramic mugs are usually opaque and more sturd than porcelain.

Are ceramic mugs safe?

Most of the ceramic products are painted with lacquer that contains lead which is harmful. So throw away your ceramic mug whenever they get scratched from inside.

How do you tell if it’s Porcelain or Ceramic?

A porcelain mug will be translucent, thin walled and well finished whereas other ceramics will be opaque, a little heavier and more sturd. If you are looking for a well finished mug for coffee, go with porcelain as they look great.

Wrap Up

We hope that the above collection finds you your favorite cup to enjoy the coffee till your last sip. Don’t compare these mugs for travel purpose as those things are commonly referred as thermos.
