Which Coffee Cup Do I Need?

There are many things to think about when choosing which type of paper coffee cup to serve your brew in: serving temperatures, insulating properties, surface texture and feel, custom printing options, and which cup sizes you want to offer. To help point you in the right direction, here we explain the key differences between our four coffee cup ranges.

Compare Insulation Properties

To test the insulation properties of each coffee cup, black coffee equivalent is poured into each cup type. (This is an extreme test starting at a higher than average temperature of 93°c) The temperature at the outer surface of the cup is measured every minute. This is the ‘holding temperature’, the heat that your hand feels when holding your coffee. A comfortable holding temperature is 65°c. This graph shows the difference in holding temperature for each cup type.
