Subject: Illy espresso cups value - 2006 Winter Olympics
 

Hello all - I'm thinking of parting with my espresso cup collection - around 150 cups.  A few of them a friend picked up at the Winter Olympics in Italy, 2006.  Illy had a "booth" there and served in limited edition espresso cups; my friend new I was a roaster and shop owner and thus brought some home for me.  I can't find the least bit of information on them and hoping someone here can help.

Many Thanks!

I wasn't trying to solicit sales, just looking for info on these cups from what I know to be a knowledgeable coffee ccommunity. Any info you guys may have would be appreciated, I can't even find them on Google.

Well, it was your first post, and you did ask for a price, and you did say you were thinking about selling them. It sounds like either fishing, or phishing. Doesn't mean it WAS, it just appears that way. Either way (or not), that was what the moderator was saying.

The best way to find out what they are worth to someone is to put them on eBay and see what someone will pay.

No worries. If I could edit or remove the original post I would; you are welcome to do so if I've offended the group etiquette.  I used to post a lot on here when I was a roaster, but that was about 10 Yeats ago.

Dangit! I can't even edit.  That would be years ago.  I get all the "phishing" worries, and reading what I wrote I can see how it could be taken that way.  Y'all have a good weekend, enjoy your coffee.

Don't worry about it. These kinds of posts do tend to arouse suspicion, but no rules broken. But as Randy says, what it's worth is what anyone will pay for it at a given point in time.
