Handy to have for Americanos; perfect fit for a Gaggia Classic
on January 7, 2012
I'm very pleased with this shot glass. It's great for making Americanos, since I prefer to pour the espresso into the hot water rather than the other way around. It has two spouts so you can pour the espresso without making a mess.
It fits great in a Gaggia Classic. Just enough room to slide it under the portafilter, and it is wide enough to catch both streams.
It has a handle to make it easy to use when pouring, and graduated markings up to 2.5 ounce. It holds 3 ounces total if filled right to the rim, so the effective capacity is about 2.6 ounces to prevent any spillage.
Very thick glass. The product photo does not do it justice - I've added a photo of it in action.
