How to Drink

Coffee Elegantly

Enjoying coffee is a pleasure, while serving it is a ritual with its own etiquette and rules. Here are some tips every coffee lover should know and respect to drink and serve their favourite beverage the proper way.

How to hold a coffee cup?

When the coffee cup and saucer are served together, hold the cup handle with your thumb and index finger of your right hand, and the saucer with your left hand. The remaining fingers on your right hand should be tucked into the palm.

How to add sugar to coffee?

Add white sugar granules to the coffee directly using a coffee spoon. If you need to add a sugar cube, you can use a coffee clip or your fingers to take one and put it on the saucer, then use the coffee spoon to add it to the coffee and let it dissolve.

What if the coffee is too hot?

You can use the coffee spoon to stir the coffee gently or leave it to cool down itself. Blowing on your hot coffee is not recommended as it may seem impolite.

Can we drink coffee and enjoy sweets at the same time?

When drinking coffee, it often comes with something sweet to eat. Please bear in mind not to hold the coffee cup in one hand and your dessert in the other. Put down the food when drinking your coffee, and vice versa. Put your coffee aside when you need to chat with your friends.
