What kind of materials are coffee cups made of?

There's a variety of different materials to choose from, each with their own benefits and features. The most popular material types of coffee cups and mugs tend to be:

  • Porcelain: one of the most common types of ceramic coffee mugs, porcelain cups are considered an expensive type of ceramic or more fancy due to their glass-like feel in the hands and on the lips. A well-glazed porcelain coffee cup is generally more expensive to make than traditional ceramic cups both in terms of their shapes and finish. They also tend to feel daintier and lighter weight than traditional ceramic mugs. Their quality glaze however should be able to withstand staining more than stoneware and ceramic, making them easier to clean hence why they're more commonly used in hospitality environments.

  • Stoneware / Ceramic: mostly denser than porcelain and therefore heavier to hold, ceramic coffee cups tend to be more casual in styling and shape with a more earthy look. The temperature at which stoneware cups are fired is at a lower temperature than porcelain and they also tend to be made with less refined clays.

  • Double Wall borosilicate glass: becoming more and more popular for its thermal properties and minimalist designs, double-wall glasses are suitable for both hot and cold drinks. This material is a great choice for those wanting their drinks to stay hot or cooler for longer. They're also lightweight and easy to hold, though it should be noted that they tend to be more brittle than ceramics or tempered glass.

  • Tempered Glass: This is the most commonly used material for espresso cups and coffee cups in cafes and restaurants due to their durability, resistance to cracking or breakage and ease in cleaning.

  • Bone China: a material choice by the more prestigious tableware brands, bone china is a premium material choice as it has a luxurious feel and attractive white translucent glow that comes from its bone ash composition.

  • Stainless Steel: commonly used on thermal mugs and reusable coffee cups. Stainless steel coffee cups are great for storing and sealing hot or cold drinks for hours, is resistant to drops far more than the materials above and easier to clean.
