Have you ever come across a product that you didn’t really know anything about until you bought it, but now that you own it, you have no idea how you used to live without it?
The Bodum Pavina Double Walled Glass Cup is that type of product.
I was given a set of 6 glasses as a present from my partner and it’s one of the best things she’s got me to date (although the list is long).
Sure, you can carry on through life without ever using one and you’ll enjoy brewing your coffee and drinking it, probably as much as I did before getting my hands on these, but after you’ve tried one, you won’t turn back.
How good is good?
When I say these things are good, I mean they’re really good. Bodum boast that these cups keep your drinks hotter for longer and keep cold drinks colder longer too. On both fronts they’re not lying!
The first time I tried my Bodum Pavina glasses, I’d brewed up a storm on my Sage Barista Express, going through my usual habits of filling the cup with hot water to heat the cup so that my coffee woul stay hotter for longer. Turns out that was a mistake!
After I’d made my long black (double espresso and a ouple of Ozs of hot water) I tried to take a sip and almost lost all sensation in my tounge. It must have been a good 15 minutes after making my coffee, breakfast etc before I’d tried to take a sip and my brew was still piping hot.
When I was looking at other people’s experiences with the Bodum Double Walled Glasses, I was a bit dubious. A lot of other people have said that they are flimsy, fragile and a bit of a waste of money.
In my opinion they must have had a faulty batch.
I’m not saying you can drop them, knock them hard against other surfaces or anything like that, but then again you wouldn’t do that with a normal mug would you? But to date, I’ve had no issues, and if they can last in my clumsy hands, then anyone else really does have a fighting chance.
The glasses are hand blown, giving them all an individual identity and feel. Some may have glass that is thicker in some areas compared to others, but all 6 of mine looked in proportion and well made.
The steam ejection system at the bottom of the glass is a bit ugly, but it does the trick of stopping the glasses getting clogged up with condensation, whilst keeping the water out from the hollowed out section of the glass.
All in all these are top quality glasses that I’ve been using week-in-week-out with no issues whatsoever. Bodum are a well-known and trusted brand by many coffee lovers and they have done a great job once again in providing me with an innovative, attractive solution for something that I do every day, which is to enjoy my favourite cup of coffee.
