Designed to pair delightfully with the OREA brewer, enhancing perception of aromatics, brightness, and sweetness. The Sense Glass adopts the shape of the original Sense Cup, in a luxurious glass body. A real feeling of high quality, a lightweight and delicate glass made for enjoying the most special coffees.
We don't think that we have to avoid single wall glasses for specialty coffee. The neck provides a comfortable and cool place to grab the glass, even when the body has warm coffee in it. This contact point allows us to enjoy a single wall glass for the most beautiful of coffees. Touch and sight are essential parts of the sensory experience and this glass helps us connect with both. This is also a fantastic glass for ice beverages (flash brew, cold brew, etc).
For the best experience using the Sense Glass with coffee, we recommend filling small amounts at one time. This leaves ample room to swirl and capture aromas, while also dropping the coffee to a better drinking temperature quickly. By filling it to full capacity, you will not maximise the experience of using this product.
The Sense Glass is like a fine wine glass - but designed for coffee. Drinking a fine wine from a mug really isn't the same as from a perfectly crafted crystal glass - so why should coffee be any different? Coffee has more volatile compounds (that make up its aroma, flavour and body) than wine and we think a lightly roasted special coffee deserves more than the trusty old mug. Try one and you'll never go back!
You can use these beautiful glasses for water, juice, beer, or even some white wine. The shape enhances aromatics and spreads liquid evenly across the pallet, helping you notice even more flavour nuances in the same beverage. This doesn't have to apply to coffee only.
The Sense Glass comes in two sizes: Large (275ml) and Small (175ml). Both are great for sipping filter coffee, while the small glass is also very well suited for espresso. We will leave the choice to you!
The Sense Glass Colour Series is handmade from lab-grade Borosilicate glass. This glass is strong, light and can withstand quick temperature changes.
To bring the Sense Cup to life, we partnered with a young up-and-coming Argentinian designer - Lautaro Lucero. He is an Industrial Engineer by trade and has been designing products for coffee for years. We worked together to test many different shapes and sizes to land on this as the perfect shape to pair with the Orea brewer. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed the process of making it.
