Topic: Best cup for each coffee (7 msgs / 165 lines)
1) From: sci
I truly appreciate everybody's input on the throwdown. I use various brew
methods and found my unscientific results to be similar to those who
participated: FP for big body. Moka for body and bang. VP for severe clear.
AP for moderate body. Pour over for middle of the road. Vietnamese dripper
for oddity. Etc.
I have another similar question that I have philosophized about much: there
is an appropriate cup for each type of coffee.
For example, I think we'd all rather drink espresso from a nice porcelain
Illy espresso cup than from a d*mn paper cup like *$ gives you. Why drink
the essence of coffee from a stupid paper cup? I drink mostly FP at home and
I swear by the hair of my chin that I have a cup that will make coffee taste
better than ordinary cups. I have lots of good cups, but my *& Barista (I
know...irony) stainless travel mug makes the coffee taste better. My hunch
is that the insulated covered cup lets the coffee cool at a nice slow rate
that brings out the flavors. When I drink IMV at C+ in there it just sings
like a bluebird in spring. However, if I drink it in a plain open
uninsulated porcelain coffee cup, the IMV flattens out some.
As coffee sages, I respect your opinions, even if they don't agree with
mine. So how about a coffee cup throwdown? It would be pretty easy to do
actually.

In my experience it is the sick chicken which fouls its nest.

I really like the Bodum Pavina 9 ounce double walled glass cups. I  
like the idea of a glass cup and the coffee looks really cool, like  
it's suspended. I also have the small ones for espresso. The coffee  
stays hot a little longer than a typical mug as well.
