Espresso cups are the finishing point for your liquid rush! As anyone who enjoys a good coffee will know, the cup is the connection to your coffee moment.
We all have our favourite cup in the cupboard or on the shelf screaming for attention as we hover into coffee mode. Size, shape, colour and finishes are all important in this world and it’s a little window into who you are.
Porcelain Conquers All
I have always enjoyed the robust feel of a high grade porcelain espresso cup and saucer set with thick walls to keep the temperature stable and stand up to any social event time and time again.
It’s hard to own just one of these as they are small in size and nearly always up for a group gathering. Being that the finish of a good food event or as a winter heart warmer, they are a bullet of good times in my memory vault. Here’s my number one pick for the espresso cup.
Mochic Glass Cups
Mochic are a bunch of global gunners who want you to consider them the next good thing to save our world, placing you as the conscious consumer. Long may they live.
Mochic make glass reusable coffee cups as do KeepCup, designed to enhance your morning brew, save your taste buds and help out mother nature. These products are for those mobile movers that do coffee on the run – staying close to a real cup and looking out for the CO2 footprint they leave behind.
Sweese Porcelain Cappuccino Cups with Saucers
The cups are made of pro-grade thick porcelain, with a perfect shape just made for cappuccino. The cups hold 6 oz without filling them to the brim, so they are decently large.
These cups are multipurpose, you can use them for cappuccino, or you can prepare an Americano, or just use them if you make a long double shot.
How do you make a long double shot espresso with a Moka pot you ask? Well, that’s a story for another article.
