Food for Thought - Testing a Coffee Cup


Which Test Cases would you write for Testing a Coffee Cup?

Have you ever come across such questions? :) Well; as a beginner many times we come across such questions during an interview? I reckon; the idea of asking such questions is to study the candidate and his/her mentality as a Software Tester.

Below are some of tips to answer such questions.

Ask the interviewer whether there are any specific requirements specifications available? If yes, then certainly that will help you to prepare Test Scenarios and Test Cases. Even if there are no requirements specifications available, just by looking at the Test Object you can write the Test Cases.

First of all, understand the System or Test Object. Try to understand what the System or Test Object does? This will help you to prepare the Test Scenarios and Test Cases for Functional Testing. Then try to understand how well the System/Test Object works? This will help you to know the Quality characteristics or Non-Functional attributes of the test object and to prepare the Test Scenarios and Test Cases for Non-Functional Testing.


Remember; it is important for Testers to have good observation skills, ability to develop Systems Thinking (a mindset or perspective for understanding the system behaviour and its workflows). And this is your opportunity to prove yourself.

Below is a simple Mind Map which covers some of the scenarios that can be considered in order to test a Coffee Cup. Certainly there can be more test ideas that can be added to the below scenarios.

  12. So, if I grabbed the coffee and say I take ownership of the cup.... ask your next question. When he asks for his coffee, sorry you have insufficient access rights to the cup, please contact your System administrator. As an example of a test I might run.

  14. I read this a long time ago, and came back this morning to get a refresher - didn't remember the oven temp. Just put a tea bag in the leftover organic coffee grounds and added a couple cups of water. This will go into the remaining coffee to strengthen it some. Can't wait to see the results! Thanks for all that you share!
