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! :-)

I was hesitant to order these because all the reviewers LOVED the product but hated the packaging. They must have fixed that -- I received the product carefully wrapped by Amazon directly along with a box of other stuff I ordered. The pictures do not do this product justice. The glass is very sturdy (think pint glass in a bar when you order a beer -- that kind of sturdy) but in a delicate little shape. The wire wrap is fairly sturdy especially for the price! I did read some reviews about dishwashing. I don't wash them in the dishwasher for fear of making the steel too bendy from the heat in the dishwasher. I have used them nearly everyday and make the perfect cup of two shot espresso with room enough for some milk! Awesome glasses.

These were really nice. The handle says cool and the cup comes out of the handles and rim for easy cleaning. Good Price. Great Product.

This is a very elegant-looking and good quality cup set. I have black dinnerware and most of the demitasse sets I see are all white. I'm glad to find this set because although it's not black, the clear glass and stainless finish look more neutral than white. It is well made and if properly cared for could last many years. I've washed it in the dishwasher and it came out fine. I got the matching WMF Manaos / Bistro Espresso Spoon, Set of 4 from Amazon.

Tip: Marshalls sells this 4-piece set for only $6.99.

Pros:

- Can't beat the price
- Nice design

Cons:

- Some of the cups keep popping out of the handles as I am drinking my espresso, spilling it on me and the counter. I contacted the manufacturer and they said they'd send replacements (still waiting but it's only been 2 weeks, will update when I get them). The problem seems to be mis-molded cups. However, I am waiting to see if the problem eventually occurs with all of the cups. So far it seems to take about 5-15 uses before the cup starts exhibiting problems.

Update 3/30/14: I received a replacement cup from the manufacturer, and it was also mis-molded. So right now it seems they are having production problems. Out of the 4 cups in the set I purchased and the replacement cup I was sent, 3 are not working right, with the handle either having to be forced on and obviously out of shape when in place, and/or the handle slipping off all by itself within a few minutes of being placed on the cup.

Update 4/4/14: I received 4 more replacement cups, and they were also mis-molded. I sent pictures and videos documenting the problem of the handles popping off and flying into the air and they are investigating. They have been super responsive regarding this issue.

I love these cups! They fit user my espresso maker. They hold about three shots and they are just down right spectacular! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is; the metal ring and handle on the cup does come off. Not while drinking or while in the dish washer. But if you pull and try and take them off they do come apart. This might be a good trait for some people, for cleaning or what not. I on the other hand just don't like it. Let me be clear THE HANDLE DOES NOT COME OFF IN USE!! IT DOES NOT I REPEAT DOES NOT DETACH ON ITS OWN!

Enjoy hope this helped

These cups are awesome because the metal base and handle detach from the glass, allowing you to position the handle at any angle around the glass itself. This is great for left-handed people who are normally forced to use right-handed mugs.

I purchased these to go with my DeLonghi EC155 Espresso Maker and they work perfectly. Cute, perfect height.. the only downside is that the metal part around the bottom, attached to the handle, tends to slide around or come off during washing. Easy to put back on though, and I haven't had any issues with it during use. I definitely recommend these cups.

These espresso glasses are very stylish and modern; they look even better in person than they do in the pictures. The metal handle/base snaps off for easy cleaning, which is nice as well. They are a little over 3 ounces, so you can do a double shot or triple shot of espresso with some room to spare.

These little cups are aesthetically cool and perfect for espresso. The only thing I don't like is that the metal handle and base come off if I don't make sure they're on tight after washing. They pop back on easily.
