Nice recovery! Is that a Bodum espresso cup?

Posted October 19, 2004 link

I thought so too, thanks. It's kind of an apple, with stem and leaves...

The cup is not actually Bodum, although it does look similar. Note the glass saucer, the Bodum have a SS saucer AFAIK.

A week or so ago, I asked a local cafe where they got there mugs from, and it just so happened that their supplier was in the back room. We worked a little deal, and I ended up with a new cappa mug (in the pic) and two new espresso mugs, for an excellent price. I forgot to look at the box to see the brand, but apparently they are Italian.

They are heavy, especially the 'spro cup, I have no scale though. Eventually I intend to weigh them and post some pics elsewhere. It may be possible to do a little group buy if there is interest.

Robin,

Thanks for the info...That sounds like a possible group buy in the near future, if we can generate some buzz...

Cheers,

Steve

Hi Steve! Sorry to hear about the bad milk out in the mid-west.  Those clear cups seem pretty cool,  much like the Bodum Passione.  I already have the Mezzo Bodum cups,  but I would be interested in a couple of these espresso cups.  I like the glass saucers!

Here's a shot of this morning's capp.

Geez, Chris, that is one good-looking Rosetta! Keep up with the good pour! Yeah, about the milk, I guess it is a problem I have to face every few months, however, I am happy to know that I have the ultra-pasteurized milk to fall back on (Thanks to you!)  In any case, below is the Rosetta I got from the watery milk.  Consider myself lucky.

I like my Mezzo cups, too, and I think they would look great with the matching clear saucers.  Maybe Robin can give us more info about the place and its supplier.

Cheers,

Steve

Chris,
Looks like you have the Astra under control!!

Steve,
I agree, right now the milk here in the Midwest ain't great for Latte Art, but your pic looks good.   Rob

Here's the best of mine, not including the ones I've tried at work.

Using Roberts Dairy (midwest) whole milk.

Rob, post one of your latte arts, I love yours.  Actually, I love yours so much, I've saved one of them to my computer.

I'll post a picture tonite, but I won't promise it will be good--this milk during the transition periods of seasons is challenging.  Rob

Here's mine tonight.  My wife likes the tall glass and I try for a heart with tons of microfoam.  Rob
