Coffee is Chemistry, so treat it as such

  • Mug looks just like a laboratory beaker
  • Glass beaker with a glass handle
  • Perfect for science nerds and teachers

If you're awesome, you know that coffee's heavenly taste comes from a perfect balance of acids - aliphatic, chlorogenic, and alicyclic carboxylic acids and phenolic acids, and sweet roasted carbohydrates in the form of mono and polysaccharides and sucrose, and alkaloids. Hundreds of different individual chemicals! The combinations of which depend mostly on the roast, skill of the roaster, and even the kind of brewing pot you use.

The bottom line is, your coffee mug is full of chemistry, so why are you sipping your bitter black brew from a simple and boring ceramic mug? Where's your science, man?

Step up to the big leagues, and drink deeply from your very own laboratory beaker! The glass handle keeps your dainty fingers from burning, while the graduated markings on the side proclaim this to be a vessel of science.

Not vessel as in starship, you know - vessel as in container... but why wax synonymic when I could be making a second cup of coffee?


  • Borosilicate glass laboratory beaker
  • Strong glass handle
  • 400ml perfect for coffee
  • 1000mL holds two-and-a-half beers
