Skim, slurp, and savor away with these nifty cupping bowls from Barista Hustle!


Hey, folks. It's Steve with Prima Coffee. Today, we're going to take a look at the cupping bowls by Barista Hustle. These are pretty simple cupping bowls that are designed to make your life a little bit easier if you're cupping on the regular. Now, it's kind of hard to improve upon a pretty basic cupping bowl, but Barista Hustle has made an effort there. You'll probably first notice that these are made of plastic instead of ceramic or glass. And the reason that they're made of plastic is because they're a lot more durable. You know, you can drop these. You can throw them across the room. You can toss them into a dish sink. And you don't really have to worry about being too careful with them because they're going to be pretty break-resistant. Another actual big advantage for being plastic is that they're actually molded. And they're molded, so they have these little fins that stick out. And they're actually molded as well, so they are all consistent in size, and shape, and volume. So the little fins help keep the cups separate during stacking.

Less heat loss than ceramic and glass bowls

They stack really well, either upright or upside down. Upside down is great because after you've pulled them out of your dish sink, you know, you can set them upside down to drain, and still stack them. And they'll have plenty of airflow to let that water come out, and get nice and dry. Now, the type of plastic used is high-density polyethylene. It is the same plastic that you would see in, like, milk cartons or other sort of food packaging. So it is food-grade. It is heat-safe. And it's not going to melt or explode on you when you fill it up with hot water when you are doing a cupping. In fact, each cup is actually recyclable, so if you do happen to break them or they, you know, have run their course and lived a nice, long life, you can actually send them away to recycling, wherever they will handle a #2 type plastic. So these bowls will hold…they're designed to hold 12 grams of coffee and 200 milliliters of water. So that's right around seven and a half fluid ounces. And basically, again, they're designed to be more consistent than some of the other products on the market.

Ceramics have different amounts of shrinkage or even warping during processing and going into their firings. Glass is usually a little bit more consistent. It just depends on how it's made, but having a molded plastic is a pretty good way to make sure that every cup is actually quite consistent. Now, again, these are nice and lightweight. They're very durable. It's a great companion to have in a cupping lab. And they're fairly inexpensive per individual piece. These come in a pack of 24. You can buy a few packs and keep your cupping lab pretty well-stocked for a good long time because again, you don't have to worry about them exploding from thermal shock or cracking when they get, you know, handled a little bit too vigorously. So they're going to last a long time, and you know, serve their purpose as a cupping bowl, so you can focus on the coffee. So that is the Barista Hustle cupping bowl. Thanks for watching.
