We use both. We only have a pair of coupes, so we use those when it's just the two of us. But for a party we serve champagne from flutes. I'd like to have more coupes, but they're hard to find. And then I'd have to trust other people not to spill.

I prefer the flute. I think it's easier to spill in a coupe :)

I second that danaruth. I have to tip my head all the way back to drink the second half of my champagne from a flute, which hardly makes me feel elegant. Also, I like the story about how the coupe was modeled after Marie Antoinette's breast, because it's so silly.

I love champagne, but I have a big nose and it makes drinking out of a flute difficult. The bigger bowl of the coupe lets me get closer to the champagne so I can smell it first. Honest to goodness truth.

I love both a lot. I don't know why, they're just so beautiful! Flutes are harder to spill, but I got a set of coupes for Christmas that I l-o-v-e. I think it's a tie.

Flutes, thank you!

Agreed, flute! Because I think it makes it taste better, and I'm less likely to spill.

i'm a flute person. i don't know - i like the classic ways of doing things sometimes.

For the people who don't know what the difference would be... A flute keeps the carbonation in better and concentrates the flavor so that each sip is a punch in the mouth. A coupe lets out carbonation and concentrates the taste, but allows one to savor the smell and gives a lighter taste.

I don't really care, but I like the look of champagne in a flute.

A flute! I'm actually pretty passionate about this. Champagne is my favorite drink and it just doesn't have the same allure when it's not served in a flute. :)

Flutes hold more, and it's harder to spill them! :)

mswender, i was thinking the same! plus, in a coupe, it feels so top-heavy I'm afraid I'm going to spill.

Either one, I think they are both very elegant :)

A flute is mush better for champagne, keeps the bubbles and all that science of wine stuff

I have always preferred flutes. They feel more elegant. **It's coupe, not coup.
