Coffee Chemistry Mug

$ 16.95

Defend your thesis, conquer your fieldwork – but first coffee!

Available in an 11 oz ceramic or 13 oz borosilicate glass variety, this 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.

Lovely cup, but a wee bit fragile!

I love my cognitive surplus coffee cup. The printing on it is perfect, very nicely edged and all of the molecules are easy to see. However, my cup fell off it took and shattered into multiple pieces not just the handle coming off, I wish it had been a little bit sturdier

A hit!

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.

Beautiful mug, treat with care

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.
