There's something about drinking espresso from a beautiful demi cup; you've provided the perfect frame for your artistic labour. These cups definitely fit the bill. They're normally around $50 for a set of 6 but the yellow glass streak model can be found this Christmas for under $20.
The cups are well made, with porcelain bodies and acrylic handles and bases. The bowl inside the cup is nicely suited for espresso, and the handle works well with your thumb and forefinger when drinking. Other colours are available including blue, red, green, gray and white, and we prefer the blue and yellow models.
