It’s something you do pretty much every day of your life, but there could still be a chance you’re doing it wrong. A cup of your favourite hot beverage in the morning is a soothing way to start the day, but did you know that there is a proper way to hold that cup of coffee you love so much.

Myka Meier, an etiquette expert, told Cosmopolitan that your delicate, carefully brewed cup o’ joe is not supposed to be manhandled. The rules of etiquette dictate that you hold it with a teensy bit more care. Allow us to elaborate.

Do you sometimes treat your coffee cup like a hearty beer mug?

Do you hold your coffee with both hands like an admittedly wonderful personal hand-warmer?

Do you grab your coffee cup handle as if you’re about to pull on it to open a door?

Well, the actual correct way is pretty simple.

Pretty easy, isn’t it?

So the next time you enjoy a cup of that yummy caffeine, you will be doing so just like royalty.
