From Venia's shipping page:

At this time we are unable to ship orders internationally.

Shocking.

That is too bad :( I was thinking about putting these cups on my own Christmas list this year :(. Locally in Vancouver, both Elysian and Matchstick use these cups, I love them. It's too bad I respect both cafes too much, otherwise, I'd just "borrow" a few for use at home, long term.

KIDDING!

By the way - I know this list (and the forthcoming ones) are very US-centric with a few bones tossed here and there for my fellow Canadians; with little to no links and products available in Europe or in Australasia. I am trying to pick vendors I know or have done business with or have bought from and can vouch for their service, and it's hard to do for other parts of the world. All I can say is, hopefully some coffee related websites based in those global locations can do up a list or two.

However, there is one list I'm planning on this coming week that will have both European and Australia (maybe even New Zealand) linked things.

I received the NotNeutral porcelain cups from Venia Coffee yesterday and they are very nice. What shocked me was how fast they came and how well they were packed. Nice job, Venia!

And thanks Mark for the recommendation.

I have no affiliation with Venia other than being a satisfied customer

When I was at Elysian earlier in the year (the Broadway one) they were selling the smaller, cappuccino sized cups.  I really want to find a set of the 12oz latte sized for myself though.
I think notNeutral and Intelligensia will both ship them to Canada.

I noticed that notNeutral will sell these cups wholesale also, with custom designs if you want them.  You have to order something like 150 of them at a time though.  Group buy opportunity?

Have to add some Inker cups (Croatia) to the suggestions.

I grab mine from Orphan Espresso.  Why I like them?
  •  appearance - clean, elegant lines (I buy 'tulip' style)
  •  hefty - have the right balance
  •  quality - excellent porcelain that holds heat very well.

Buy 'em here.

I love the MOCCA style for capps -- 4.5 oz.

Maybe the BEST lists yet, and a great way to get familiar with some vendors previously unknown to me.

Fun list but the SC-2KG scale is not accurate to 0.1g.

The specs indicate it is precise to 0.1g but only accurate to +/- 0.2g per the manufacturer's specs at Click Here (www.americanweigh.com) .
Precision = least significant digit shown
Accuracy = The maximum deviation of that least significant digit.

Trying to find a scale accurate to +/-0.1g for cheap is a bitch.
