Cup Design
Saturday, September 29th

The cappucino cups aboard The Excellent have an interesting design. The lip of the cup droops over the cup and extends to the bottom. This provides a quarter of an inch of air between the two pieces of plastic.

Originally I thought this was to make stacking easier, however, it occurred to me that most cups already stack efficiently. However, this cup does: a) prevent finger burning when holding hot beverages, b) provide a greater degree of stability when resting, important on a ship and c) offer an enjoyable squishy sensation.
