We don't think that we have to avoid single wall glasses for specialty coffee. The neck provides a comfortable and cool place to grab the glass, even when the body has warm coffee in it. This contact point allows us to enjoy a single wall glass for the most beautiful of coffees. Touch and sight are essential parts of the sensory experience and this glass helps us connect with both. This is also a fantastic glass for ice beverages (flash brew, cold brew, etc).
For the best experience using the Sense Glass with coffee, we recommend filling small amounts at one time. This leaves ample room to swirl and capture aromas, while also dropping the coffee to a better drinking temperature quickly. By filling it to full capacity, you will not maximise the experience of using this product.
You can use these beautiful glasses for water, juice, beer, or even some white wine. The shape enhances aromatics and spreads liquid evenly across the pallet, helping you notice even more flavour nuances in the same beverage. This doesn't have to apply to coffee only.
The Sense Glass comes in two sizes: Large (275ml) and Small (175ml). Both are great for sipping filter coffee, while the small glass is also very well suited for espresso. We will leave the choice to you!
To bring the Sense Cup to life, we partnered with a young up-and-coming Argentinian designer - Lautaro Lucero. He is an Industrial Engineer by trade and has been designing products for coffee for years. We worked together to test many different shapes and sizes to land on this as the perfect shape to pair with the Orea brewer. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the process of making it.
