Hi, I’m a Mandala Artist from Australia and I made a business from art. Living with anxiety does not always make life the easiest but I have found art as a way to help me and others find the calm they need. So if you do struggle living life, know this, you can do it, you will make it.

When I reflect of what International Women’s Day means to me, I immediately recall my favourite stories about goddesses and heroines. These myths have a modern sense of empathy, justice, and feminism that reminds me that I am not alone. My design features Medusa, Nemesis, and Aphrodite (along with other symbols of Greek goddesses), and part of the proceeds will go to @unwomen. Also, if anyone wants to hear the full, unabridged tale of Medusa, head over to my YouTube channel!”

Stokke Cups (Reviews)In a world where billions of people enjoy coffee every day, we’re no strangers to the scent of fresh roasts, the churning sounds of coffee grinders and the captivating works of latte arts. However, with every cup of coffee at hand, do we sometimes stop and think about the cups themselves? As many coffee lovers may describe, coffee drinking is a haptic experience, one where all our senses are at play. From smelling the aroma to tasting the flavourful coffee and even holding a cup with the perfect coffee temperature, let’s not forget that our coffee cups actually play a vital role in our drinking experience. An average coffee cup, as we all know, has the purpose of serving our favourite type of coffee without burning our hands. At the same time, they help to keep the beverage warm for a period of time. With a lid, the coffee cup also helps to retain the aroma of the smell when the user is not drinking it. However, a coffee cup can do so much to enhance your drinking experience. For instance, enhancing the overall coffee taste, adding convenience if you’re on the go, or ensuring no leakage at all. For most coffee cups, they come in common materials such as paper, plastic, metal and glass. With each type of material, they all hold distinct properties that make them an easy choice when it comes to choosing the type of cups to drink our coffee in. Without further ado, let’s dive into each material and study its properties.
Types of coffee cups
Paper cupsIf you frequent your local coffee shops, you would have probably at least drank coffee out of a paper cup once. With their affordability, paper cups are a common sight as they are cheap and very good for single use. They are also lightweight and can easily store both hot and cold liquid without any breakage. For on-the-go coffee lovers, paper coffee cups are also very likely to be your favourite option as you can easily dispose of them after consuming your beverage. While paper coffee cups have their convenience, they are not really the most environmental-friendly option. With their single-use property, paper coffee cups are not sustainable in the long run, unlike bamboo or reusable cups. What’s worst, when not disposed of properly, paper cups tend to end up in landfills and they will not be recycled properly. For coffee drinkers who are particular about taste, you may also notice a hint of papery taste in your coffee, due to the cheap quality of some paper cups.
Plastic cupsFollowing closely behind paper cups are plastic cups. They are similar in properties, with affordability and convenience being their selling points. Thus, they are also commonly used in cafes and restaurants. However, if we’re talking about a cup for your coffee-making sessions at home, keep in mind that plastic coffee cups are not microwave safe. In other words, they are not good options to handle hot coffee. But if you have a preference for drinking hot coffee, we’d suggest you opt for a double-walled plastic mug as they are more durable than the usual plastic cups. With plastic cups, also keep in mind to wash them regularly as they are prone to stains. After prolonged use, the smell of the beverage that you keep in your plastic cups tends to become more distinct, leaving a distasteful flavour in both your coffee and mouth.
Metal cupsPerhaps you’re an avid traveller and you’d like something lightweight and durable. Inspired by soldiers who used them during the war, metal cups may be your must-have accessory if you’re heading into the wilderness or simply chilling outdoors on your porch. In all metal, these cups are sleek, stylish and versatile. They can also store both cold and hot drinks. But be careful, as metal cups can become extremely hot if you’re pouring boiling water or extra hot coffee into them directly. This is due to their single-walled steal feature, which prevents your coffee from cooling easily. So if you’re a slow sipper, you might want to find another material for your coffee instead.
GlassFor all aesthetic lovers out there, you’re probably already using this one — glass cups. Due to the transparent wall feature, glass cups are an excellent choice for that visual appeal. Whether you’re making your latte art or joining in the hype of making Dalgona coffee, rest assured that a glass cup will let you show off your work of art effortlessly. While glass coffee cups are visually appealing in many ways, they do not retain heat as well as coffee cups in other materials. And if your coffee is too hot, you may even risk breaking the glass! This brings us to the next disadvantage of glass cups — Yes, they are very fragile! While heat and temperature are factors you have to take into consideration, you’ll want to also worry about not dropping your glass cups and always having to store them properly on your shelves. So what’s the solution? Now that we’ve gone through the different types of coffee cups, you may be wondering… With all these pros and cons, can I still find the perfect coffee cup? The answer is yes! And our solution? Switch to ceramic cups instead.
Benefits of ceramic coffee cups
Higher heat retentionWith every delicious cup of coffee, we’d want it to taste as delicious as it was when first brewed, and even kept at the perfect temperature. With ceramic coffee cups, you’ll be able to keep your coffee hot for a longer period of time. Due to its porous property, conduction occurs slower in the ceramic material, which helps your coffee to lose heat at a slower rate, as compared to the aforementioned coffee cup materials. In addition, ceramic has a higher specific heat factor, resulting in a lesser heat loss through convection. In layman’s terms, ceramic helps to prevent heat transfer from air molecules.
More sustainable and environmentally-friendlyAs consumers, we are getting more conscious of the type of food we’re consuming and the type of products we’re using. Instead of paper or plastic cups, you should consider switching to ceramic cups to reduce your carbon footprint. Ceramic cups are reusable, washable and can be kept for a longer period of time. They’re also lightweight and easily transported around. With lighter weight, delivery couriers actually use lesser resources and energy usage to ship these ceramic coffee cups into our homes. In the long run, it reduces gas emissions which helps to protect the environment. So by switching to ceramic cups, you’re indirectly doing your part in stopping climate change!
Better health benefitsNot only can you do your part in saving our Earth, but you’ll get to also enjoy health benefits. For instance, metal cups come with a chromium oxide layer which helps keep the cups stainless and shiny. However, over time, they absorb the negative minerals found in soaps and even components occurring from manufacturing. Unlike metal cups, ceramic is a safer and healthier option.
DurabilityUnlike glass or other materials, ceramic cups are less fragile and tend to be more durable in the long run. While there may be chips on the surface after a prolonged time of usage, they’re definitely not going to break anytime soon.
