As a coffee shop owner, how do you make the decision on which coffee cups to buy? What things should to keep in mind when making this purchase? 


1. double insulation

Insulated cups are cups that keep your drinks at the desired temperature, whether hot or cold. It's important that you have double insulated cups at your coffee shop because you want your clients walk out of your shop with a warm drink, and still have a warm drink 10-20 minutes later.

Be on the look out for cups that have grip technology, to avoid your customer's from burning their hands. If your cup burns one of your visitors, the results can be terrible: getting wet, having stained clothes, or even worsr - ending up at the hospital. This is the result of purchasing low-quality coffee cups.
