9 best cups — Ranking 2022


Briefly about the choice of cup

Cups can be used for cof­fee and tea — they can be spe­cial or uni­ver­sal. They have one or two han­dles. Cups dif­fer in:

  1. Shape (dome, cone, round, etc.).
  2. Dec­o­ra­tion — plain, with dec­o­ra­tion, with orna­ment.
  3. Vol­ume — from 30 to 500 ml.

Small cups are suit­able for tast­ing and tea cer­e­monies, large ones for broths or long feasts and con­ver­sa­tions.

Cof­fee cups can be not just of dif­fer­ent sizes, they have dif­fer­ences in pur­pose — for espres­so in the shape of a trun­cat­ed cone, demi­tasse half a cup, for cap­puc­ci­no with a wide neck, for Turk­ish cof­fee, Amer­i­cano, etc. The rule “the stronger the cof­fee, the small­er the cup” works here.


The mate­ri­als for the man­u­fac­ture of dish­es are:

  1. Porce­lain, thin and ele­gant, requir­ing spe­cial care and han­dling.
  2. Faience and ceram­ics — an ana­logue of porce­lain with thick­ened walls, a bot­tom and a rel­a­tive­ly low price.
  3. Glass;
  4. Glass ceram­ics — a more durable ana­logue of glass;
  5. Met­al;
  6. Plas­tic.


Before buy­ing cups, you should decide on their pur­pose:

  1. For every­day use, ceram­ic ones are suit­able — they are unpre­ten­tious in care, do not require spe­cial han­dling and last a long time.
  2. For receiv­ing guests, cups with exquis­ite design are cho­sen; if you need to empha­size your taste or sta­tus, give pref­er­ence to porce­lain or glass.
  3. For a gift, you should focus on the recip­i­ent: his sta­tus, taste pref­er­ences, design.

The pack­age also mat­ters. The cup can be alone, with a saucer, or in some oth­er set, for exam­ple, with a stand, with a teapot. When choos­ing, pay atten­tion to the way you care for the dish­es.
