Best Coffee Containers
The best coffee containers are made from high quality materials such as glass, metal or plastic. They have been designed to protect your precious brew while keeping it fresh. You can choose between two types of coffee cans: Oxo and Frii. Oxo is a type of aluminum can used for brewing espresso drinks; Frii is a type of steel can used for making cappuccinos.
Coffee Can Sizes
There are different sizes of coffee cans available. There are standard size (standard) and large size (large). These can be useful when you want to make a big batch of tea or hot chocolate. You may need to store these cans in the refrigerator for long periods of time so they must be kept cold.
If you’re planning to use them frequently, then you’ll probably prefer the larger sized ones.
How Do I Choose Which One Is Right For Me?
You’ve got several options here. You could go for one of the many coffee can brands out there. Or you could try to figure out which type of coffee can will suit your needs best. Here’s how you do it:
1. Size matters!
When choosing a coffee can, size really does matter. If you’re making a small amount of a drink, then you need to choose a smaller sized coffee can. If you’re making a lot, then you need to choose a larger one.
2. How long will you be keeping the liquid? If you plan on keeping the liquid for less than a week, then you can use either a standard or large coffee can.
If you plan on keeping it for longer than that, then you need to either refrigerate or freeze it.
3. Make sure it’s food safe!
When choosing a coffee can, make sure that you choose one that is food safe and BPA-free. This will prevent any harmful chemicals from leaking into your drink while it’s being stored.
4. Consider the containers accessibility.
If you’re choosing a metal container, make sure that the top is easy to open. You don’t want to have to use a can opener every time you want a cup of tea or hot chocolate.
5. Are you right or left handed? If you’re a lefty, then you need to choose a coffee can that is easily accessible for you.
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to open a coffee can that was designed for righties!
6. Do you have a big family? In this case, you should go with a larger sized coffee can so that it’ll keep your drinks nice and fresh for longer periods of time.
7. Consider your budget.
There are different types of coffee cans that come at different price points. You can buy the cheapest one or you can splurge a bit and buy the most expensive one. The choice is yours!
The best way to choose a coffee can is to experiment with different types until you find the one that works best for you. You might even want to have more than one type so that you’re completely prepared no matter what. You never know when you’ll need to use one at the last minute!
