Positive Product Points

Nice thin walls on the cup - feels like porcelain and not china. Bought set of 6 and have found no noticeable flaws or defects. Handle is easy to hold and they are visually pleasing - very nice lines.

Negative Product Points

None that I can think of unless you don't like plain white - they come only in this color.

Detailed Commentary

This is my first set of espresso cups and I will buy more from Ikea when I need some. There are many shops close to my area that serve the large Hispanic population and espresso cups are readily available, often as cheap as $1 each. All of these that I've seen have much thicker walls like a china coffee mug and don't have that perfect bowl shape like the Ikea. It might be fun to have some cool collectible cups but for everyday use or to serve a large group, these are a fantastic value and in stock all the time at any Ikea. They sell for $3 on the website but I believe I paid $2.50 per cup/saucer set in the store.  They also sell an identically shaped and constructed cappucino cup/saucer. It's 14 oz to hold a perfect double and sells for $5 per set but is available only in the store, not on the website. Be forewarned when looking - they also have multicolored espresso cups that are thick walled - only the white sets have the thin porcelain like construction.

Buying Experience

Walked in... paid... walked out. Easy!
