Finding the perfect mug for your coffee does make a difference when it comes to enjoying its flavors.

“Ideally, if you have time there is nothing like drinking a cup of coffee out of a white ceramic cup. I think there is something about the weight of the cup and the aesthetics that make you focus and embrace the experience,” Rip Pruisken, co-founder of Rip Van, told INSIDER.

For an even more enhanced drinking experience, there’s the Jamber mug, which was designed by engineers to become the most comfortable mug. When you hold the mug, your hand is automatically, put into a anatomically neutral position, reducing strain on ligaments and tendons in your hand, wrist, and arm, according to Allen and Diana Arseneau, the husband and wife co-founder duo behind Jamber.

“Your Jamber mug becomes an extension of your hand, so you can enjoy that cup of coffee like you never have before,” the Arsenals told INSIDER.

Add a unique flavor to your coffee.

The geniuses at Plated, a culinary team led by Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Elana Karp, developed several fun and surprising recipes for your coffee.

Some of their creative inventions include citrus coffee, turmeric coffee, fizzed coffee, Australian coffee, and banana milk coffee. These recipes are sure to give you the caffeine boost you need topped with a hint of fizz, fruit, and other fun additions.

Food can both compliment your coffee and enhance its taste, according to Pruisken.

“I think there are two camps in which coffee and food pairings fall into. Either the coffee and food share similar flavor notes – ie pairing a fruity coffee with a fruity food — or they don’t but are complementary – ie a nutty/spiced coffee with a fruity food,” Pruisken told INSIDER.

Some great pairings include salted almonds, dried cranberries, kettle corn, a dark chocolate bar, and even tapioca pudding.
