Coffee Glassware

Coffee beverages are primarily served as hot as possible, so many types of glassware are designed to keep them this way. Heat rises, so having a tall and slender body will help the drink maintain temperature. With hot beverages safe handling is important, so coffee glassware usually has handles.
