Converting copper to cpvc.

I need to convert 3/4 inch copper to 3/4 cpvc.
Should I use a male copper fitting into a female cpvc or female copper into male cpvc.
Thanks for any help!!

Usually the female cpvc fitting will rely on a rubber washer in its base for a seal. Not always reliable for long term. I would opt for the female copper to male cpvc with teflon tape.
