Very nice little espresso glass cups
on October 6, 2010
These glass espresso cups are actually a bit nicer than I was expecting. They have a nice heavy feel to them, but not overly so - just a good solid, well made feel. I was a little worried the wire handles might feel cheap, but that's not the case at all. The handles feel and look good and match the overall weight of the glass, etc.
They are a hair large for single or even double shots of espresso, but not overly so. I think if you are having a bit of milk in your shot - or something along those lines - then these glasses will be just about right. They also have the added bonus of letting you see the crema and/or how everything mixes together, etc.
For the price, I would say it's quite a bargain. Even if I had paid $20 for these, I still would have been pleased.
My only concern was the absolute lack of packing to protect them. Luckily our delivery guy must have taken good care of the box, because they don't exactly bend over backwards at Amazon to protect these. When I opened the box and removed each one, I was holding my breath and expecting to see at least one with a chip or crack. However, due to the sturdy (perhaps even tempered?) glass these use, they survived the trip in one piece.
Again, very good value for the money. I first saw these in use at a local coffee shop down in Oceanside and I'm happy to say they are as nice as I remembered them (if not maybe even a touch nicer! :-)
