As one of the most popular and widely drunk beverages in the UK, it is little surprise that there are countless ways to prepare and serve coffee. While it’s traditional to serve coffee in china or ceramic cups, it’s also possible to use glass as a method of service.
Coffee glasses let you serve this hot drink in a stylish and aesthetically pleasing way. Part of the ritual of drinking coffee is about the aroma and appearance, and using glass allows you to take full advantage of the latter. Whether you’re serving small coffee shots in espresso glasses or tall and creamy lattes, the glass lets the customer see the rich colours and contrasts that come from the coffee, milk and foam, all of which add to the overall taste and experience of drinking coffee.
Coffee glasses come in all shapes and sizes, from regular coffee mugs and saucers, to small shot glasses and taller or hi ball style glasses. Coffee glasses need to be specially made to withstand the heat of the very hot liquid without cracking or breaking, especially when exposed to cold water after being hot. This special glass also has insulating properties to keep the coffee hotter for longer.
Coffee glasses can be used to serve regular black and white coffees, cappuccinos, lattes, espressos as well as a variety of other hot drinks including herbal teas and hot chocolate. That’s why they are such a valuable addition to any bar, café or restaurant. Choosing glass instead of ceramic or china is a bold design statement and one that is proving to be increasingly popular with establishments around the UK.
