Finally, KRUVE EQ glassware is not only helping the coffee industry catch up, but pushing things further than they’ve ever been before."

"For many years, the coffee industry has had to borrow from other industries like wine and spirits to explore the effect that the drinking vessel has on coffee. KRUVE decided to make something specifically tailored to coffee, and the result is a set of glasses that not only enhance and shift the flavour of the coffee, but are functional as well."

EXCITE

The EXCITE glass holds 5oz (150ml) and features a bulbous shape and large liquid surface area. This traps and circulates aroma, while softening acidity and enhancing sweetness. It often pairs well with full-bodied, chocolatey, nutty, or dark roasts.

INSPIRE

The INSPIRE glass holds 5oz (150ml) and features a narrow inner glass shape and smaller liquid surface area. This focuses and funnels the aroma, while enhancing acidity. It often pairs well with fruity, citrusy, or light roasts.

SENSORY SCIENCE

How horrible is it when your favourite song comes on and the bass is weak or the treble is ear-piercing? Well-balanced audio requires the use of a good equalizer (EQ), and just like audio, great flavor requires harmony and balance. With this in mind, KRUVE used several science-backed sensation and perception principles to harmonize the senses:

TOUCH - Both glasses feature hand blown double-walled borosilicate glass to keep the coffee warm, yet cool to the touch; while the single wall keeps the rim thin, so that it’s comfortable to drink.

TASTE - Each glass differs in terms of liquid surface area, which affects the rate of oxidation, and in turn softens or amplifies tannins and acidity. They also differ in terms of rim architecture, which affects the flow and spread of coffee on your tongue.

SMELL - Each glass also features a different internal shape and amount of headspace, which can greatly impact the aromatic focus of the beverage.

SIGHT - The flavor profile is not the only place you’ll find balance. The glasses are a perfect inverse of each other on the outside, yet completely unique on the inside. Also, the clear glass material allows for true appreciation of texture and color.

PIQUE

The PIQUE carafe is the perfect complement to the EXCITE and INSPIRE glasses and at 10 ounces (300ml), it is sized appropriately for one to two servings. It’s not only a gorgeous serving vessel, you can also brew directly into the carafe. Thanks to the double-walled glassware design you have exceptional thermal control. That means you can take your time enjoying your coffee, knowing your brew will maintain the right temperature for longer.

EVOKE

The EVOKE carafe is a larger serving vessel and at 20 ounces (600ml), is suitable for up to four servings. It’s a great option for serving multiple guests or enjoying multiple cups. Aside from keeping temperature stable for longer, which is all the more important when serving guests, the rim diameter is such that you can use most popular brewing devices. Put more simply, brew your best roast and savor whether entertaining or on your own.

BLIND TASTE TEST


Heads up! This video features 100% real and un-scripted feedback. The KRUVE team set out to see just how much of an impact glassware has on the sensation and perception of people's favorite beverage.

In this taste test, we allowed customers to taste two different coffees...or so they thought! What they didn't realize was that we were using the same coffee. I know, sneaky, right?
