Coffee Chemistry Mug
Defend your thesis, conquer your fieldwork – but first coffee!
This glass mug is for brooding intellectuals, thinkers, chemists, and science nerds who know that there’s more to coffee than just caffeine. This glass celebrates the complex array of molecules that give coffee its unique qualities and flavors. Molecules such as guaiacol, which is responsible for that quintessential roasted coffee aroma – or diacetyl, which contributes a buttery flavor.
Material: Hand Blown Glass
Care: Microwave safe, Hand wash
My niece enthused over her gift, a graduation present for her science degree. I'm a science teacher and it's on my wish list.
This mug is truly eye-catching. My partner is a coffee fanatic and this was the perfect gift - aesthetically pleasing plus nerdy coffee chemistry. Unfortunately, the mug broke after a short time and limited use (glass was room temperature and hot coffee broke a hole in the bottom upon pouring). Karl at customer service was extremely timely and helpful and replaced the mug and provided use/care tips to ensure the glass is treated properly. I do still have concerns over the thickness of the glass - it feels fragile compared to our other glassware. But it is gorgeous and we will enjoy it and treat it with the care it needs. *Note: my original review appears to have been deleted. New review to capture excellent customer service response.
I was amazed that the mug looked exactly like the picture. I love drinking from and looking at such exquisite detail of the molecules for coffee. Best peuchase for this science geek.
The company was super good about keeping me updated about where the package was down to the last minute, I think the price is very reasonable and the glass is very sturdy and I’ve put very hot coffee in there and it doesn’t crack or break! The white molecule design doesn’t fade and it’s actually part of the glass so it won’t rub off on the outside.
My friend's favorite mug! So great for coffee.
First, the basics: order processing and shipping were fast and efficient, and the products arrived safely (always a worry when ordering something glass). The mugs themselves were a little lighter weight than I initially expected, but if anything, that's been a benefit for me as I brew with a press and prefer to drink it a bit cooler than brewing temperature. I love being able to watch as I blend the creamer, and I'm endlessly amused by all things scientific/nerdy.
This thing is great! I have a degree in Chemistry and I roast coffee, so what could be better?!? Well, a little heavier mug would be better. I love the mug, it's just a little on the light side.
Fantastic mug. Decently thick, and just feels good to hold. My favorite part of the mug is watching my coffee drip into it. It's a feast for the eyes you don't get with a normal mug. If you buy one, I'd highly recommend making an "Affogato" in it.
