I am a coffeeholic. There I said it and it’s okay.
For me, coffee is more than a morning pick-me-up. It’s more than the caffeine. It’s more than a drink. Coffee and I have a very special relationship. I like it hot and I like it cold.. It’s a flavor destination that rarely fails to satisfy.
Unlike ice cream or chocolate – my two favorite foods, coffee is always on my menu. When I worked in the corporate world, I was rarely seen without my trusted coffee mug in my hands. If I walked into a meeting without it, people asked what was wrong.
Today, my trusted coffee mug travels to my home-office where I write my books, blog posts and connect with my social media fans. It goes with me to the beach. It goes practically everywhere I go.
[Tweet “Does The Color of The Cup Affect The Taste of Coffee?”]
So to see the reports that cup/mug color affects the taste of my go to beverage, was not shocking at all. Color affects just about everything in our lives. The color of your dinner plate has an amazing affect on your perception of the food on it.
The color and feel of utensils will affect the manner in which you eat and your perception of the “Mouth Feel” of the food you eat. The color of a room affects a person’s mood. The color of classrooms is directly associated with the student’s attention and ability to learn.
So I guess the color of the mug in which we drink our favorite beverages would affect our perception of the flavor of those drinks. A study released in Journal Flavor asked – Does The Color of The Cup Affect The Taste of Coffee. Their findings backs up the perceptions.
In that light, Barristers are taught to serve coffee in clear rather than colorful cups. Restaurants make decorating decisions based on the affects of color. Designers do the same for our homes and offices.
Color affects just about everything in our lives. Do you have any stories to share about how color affected you? Post them below.
