Detailed Commentary

Picked these up at http://www.natashascafe.com/html/ecup.html for $10 USD for a pair of cups w/ saucers. If you like your cups heavy, thick and without annoying designs these are just great. i picked up 4 of them and they arrived well packaged and as described at the website.

1.28.02 Follow-up

Site says the following about these cups [slightly edited]:
"Amazing...a plain demitasse cup.  These are designed for heavy-duty use in cafes before coffee shops became fashionable. You wouldn't believe how hard they are to find, because nobody sells restaurant grade anything to the public. Most gourmet coffee shops sell over-decorated designer demitasse cups with museum scenes and small delicate handles.  
Here are the truly quiet cups. A simple demitasse cup for a very simple cup of Turkish coffee. We offer two styles, both restaurant grade plain white demitasse cups and saucers for Turkish or Espresso coffee. The Bistro is made in China, the Mykonos is imported from Greece."

I purchased the Bistro set which is $10/pair. Unlike Mark (coffeekid) I'm not at all a fan of the Illy designer cups and prefer a simple heavy duty plain white cup. These fit the bill perfectly. Note the Mykonos are UGLY as hell!

Buying Experience

Great. No problems, shipped quickly and packed very well.
