straws may make sense when driving (seems i burnt my mouth hole the last time i tried)

when coffee is hot i need to control the coffee to air ratio/modulation (my friends call it slurping)

i do drink espresso often (two way)

the civil cup after a meal (a polite slurp) and the cubano shot (gulp)

We Tried the Disposable Coffee Lid of the Future And It's Actually Great

 

For all our crippling caffeine addictions, the disposable coffee cup is a highly imperfect art at best. Seattle-based company Vaporpath wants to change that with a total coffee cup lid overhaul. But is the fancy new redesign actually superior to its classic brethren? We decided to find out for ourselves.

First, the claim. Vaporpath's Viora coffee lid addresses quite a few java-related issues that, until now, we've been fairly content to suffer through without much thought. Whereas typical coffee lids take on a more bowl-like shape to catch (but also keep, irritatingly) any rogue, squirting liquid, the Viora lid looks almost like a dissected funnel.

The wider mouth should in theory make it easier to control your coffee intake, while the slanted lid directs any spillage right back into the cup where it belongs. What's more, the three-times-the-size opening hypothetically gives you a much better sense of your coffee's aroma. Which, assuming you're drinking something decent, can turn what was essentially a joyless caffeine IV into a legitimately pleasant experience.

Filling our cups with some freshly brewed Hair Bender (a medium-dark roast from small-batch, Portland roaster Stumptown) we asked our resident coffee expert, Michael Hession, whether or not the fairly lofty claims held up.

 

According to Hession, there is definitely a noticeable difference in the two drinking experiences. The Viora really is more comparable to drinking out of a ceramic mug. With a mug, the open mouth allows for a controlled intake of air along with your liquid, which is key for aeration and, consequently, key to more flavorful slurps. What's more, since 75 percent of taste comes from your sense of smell, the tight-lipped lid of old severely cheats you out of the full flavor experience. When we drank out of the Viora, though, the extra space in the opening left the aroma free to waft up into out nostrils, bringing out far more of the coffee's smokier, semi-sweet chocolate notes.

The other key improvement is temperature. With a traditional lid, you can either wait for your coffee to cool or risk a burnt mouth. The Viora, though, allowed us to suck up some air with our coffee, meaning a sip cooled before it ever hit our tongues. It may not necessarily be an overwhelming difference, but as the first major lid innovation in 30 years, it's definitely a welcome one.

Exactly - if I want to put some twigs or barbecue potato chips in the grinder with the beans, I'll do it myself.
