In this week’s blog we will follow up the previous series of espresso thermal analysis with a thermal analysis that is a little more fitting for this
A thermal analysis experiment of a Bodom tm insulated espresso cup.
Thermal Analysis of Espresso Cup Materials In our blog this week focuses on espresso coffee and the material of the cup in which it is served. The three standard materials that will be tested are paper, Styrofoam and ceramic. Paper cups are designed for cold drinks, so it is likely that they will result in the lowest amount of thermal energy retention in the espresso coffee. Styrofoam cups are designed as a cheaper and single-use alternative to standard ceramic coffee cups. Since they have the ability to handle a large range of temperatures, they will be able to manage the thermal energy in the espresso coffee. Ceramic cups are designed to handle extremely hot temperatures and then be washed [...]
