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.
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!

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.
