Not all coffee mugs have to be clunky pieces of ceramic that you bought as a souvenir or got for free at a company event. In fact, there are plenty of design-forward mugs out there. One of the most beloved varieties is the glass coffee mug, which gives you a crystal-clear view of your hot drink.

Yes, you can drink coffee or tea out of a glass mug. But it can’t be just any old tumbler—make sure that the glassware you’re using for hot liquids is borosilicate glass, which is stronger and can hold hot liquids without shattering. Another consideration to make when buying a glass mug is ensuring that they’re double-walled. This will help keep your beverage insulated, so it won’t get cold too quickly. The rest really comes down to preference—every mug will be a slightly different size and style, so it depends entirely on how hefty your morning cup of joe is.

You don’t just have to use these for coffee, either. The beauty of a glass mug is that, unlike other chintzier cups, you’ll want to use them to hold other beverages too. Here are 10 of the best.

This mug, designed by Matteo Thun, for one, is made of borosilicate glass that’ll keep any hot beverage nice and toasty.
