    The colours on these are beautiful. Even the black and the white ones look spectacular.
    I have noticed some hairline cracks on the inside of the Yellow one and I have been wondering whether it could be from repeatedly filling them from cold with water straight from the Group to warm them up pre-pour.

    If you google "terra keramik" the top result is an Australian website offering them for $40/45 espresso/cappuccino.

    Spin addict, what do you think of the double walled titanium? Any flavour? Might be just the thing for bushwalking

    Thanks Ninja - I have done a few searches and identified this site but was unsure whether it was related to one that gave some of us a fair bit of grief some years ago.

    The double walled titanium ones I have are great because they are different but my wife uses them mostly for tea. They are lovely and light, great to touch and don't impart any taste whatsoever. The main issue with them is price; the ones I have are over $200 per cup

    Wow! $200 per cup is definitely an issue for my modest budget. Thanks for the reply, they sound fabulous and best news is no taste. I googled double walled titanuim when I initially read your post and the first page is brand for bushwalking ranging from $40 to $60, also made in Japan. I think I will try one after your response.

    If anyone is interested it seems all larger Bodum dealers have specials on at the moment, my wife picked up 8 for the price of 6 Bodum Pavoni yesterday for $70

    Finally got to use my cups from Antony. These cups are a beaut, and are very consistent between each cup.
    Originally I wanted the black cups, but the handle area remains white.
    I opted for the gold rimmed ones and they are just so elegant.

    I don't think I'll do a bounce test just yet.

    There are lots of options other than what we have, the ones we got were particularly special in terms of manufacturing process and finish, doesn't make them better, just different. - i tried to find our ones and they don't seem to be available, we purchased whilst in Japan.

    Horie is the brand that's easy to find.

    Charzy very nice cups - simple and good taste

    Spin Addict thanks for the brand, just googled them and they have some amazing products, from simple to unusual. I am sure your set would be a fantastic reminder of a trip to Japan.

    For something different, double walled glasses as they slow down the cooling, you can see the shot, PLUS no scratches on the drip tray .
    Personally I like the look of them on the machine as well as they don't stand out.

    I just got myself a pair of Bialetti "momenti di caffe" Roma espresso cups and saucers. I agree with Paul about the double walled glasses, they don't "feel" as nice as a good solid ceramic cup, perhaps this is due to their lack of mass?

    What type of coffee cups do you use ?

    I've got a range of cups in different shapes and sizes. Some ACF porcelain, some Japanese and French glass, some budget porcelain and Bodum double wall espresso glasses among others. But I'm really happy with the pair of Cafe Bar by Könitz espresso cups and sauces I scored the other day for a bargain price.

    I don't know what it's like in Australia, but since ACF ceased to exist it's basically impossible to buy ACF cups in NZ these days unless they pop up second hand. When they do it's usually either a cafe lot of dozens or more being sold as a whole group for a reasonable price (this is obviously not practical for home), or as singles for near new prices, or occasionally a pair or a part set (but these tend to be the less common and less desirable sizes). So I was happy to spot some brand new full sets being sold on our local auction site this week. The seller had two half-dozen sets of what I guess are call 6oz cappuccino cups. I ended up winning the auction and getting them for what I'd call a bargain. Picked them up today and I'm stoked. They are slightly smaller than the plain white ones I've been using, but bigger than the other ACF ones I've got which is exactly what I was hoping for. Happy days.

    Nice pick up Leroy, ACF cups disappeared long ago from the Aust retailers I visit, I'm a fan of their cups, shame they went out of business.

    My 102 yo Mum was unimpressed with my nice thick coffee cups, having been brought up on fine bone china (with flowers and decoration) for Tea.
    Thought they looked cheap and not well made.
    Even after the explanation was still not impressed.

    Some lovely cups being used! I'm looking for some new ones for latte drinks mostly. Liking these D'Ancap options which I've found at site sponsor Casa Espresso.

    Question regarding size. I see some 'cappuccino' cups are sized at 180-250 ml then there are latte or milk cups that seem huge at @350ml.

    I used to drink a large (read 'bucket') size latte to get my hit but found I'd always make the coffee/milk ratio way off (too weak, too strong) so looking at a size where a double shot (40gm) or possibly a triple will be offset with just enough milk for a 'goldilocks just right' strength latte as a result

    I'm thinking the 180ml still sound a little small? Thoughts?

    With thanks!

    Those d'Ancaps are lovely!

    Personally I started out with 200ml+ cappuccino cups, have worked my way down to 160ml tulips.

    I tend to have one larger flat white in a ~180ml capp cup, then a couple of stronger ones from the tulips. One option is to grab an assortment rather than matching set of six... Acme are pretty good for that as they're sold individually and their saucers fit multiple cups of different sizes.

    What type of coffee cups do you use ?

    Cups, cups, cups..


    As a supplier it has been interesting to watch the trend in cup sizes over the last few years.

    We have seen a definite move to smaller sizes, even to our 150ml "Palermo competition cups".

    I think there are a number of reasons for this:
    - better milk to coffee ratio, particularly for the "speciality" blends we are seeing
    - cost : less milk = less cost , particularly in the cafe market
    - a trend to follow what competition baristas are doing. The 150ml is a competition spec volume and our Palermo 150ml is used by many competition baristas, there is a natural flow on from this.

    Having said that I think the 150ml is a touch to small, particularly for some. I know if I gave my mum a coffee in a 150ml cup she would ask " where is the rest!".

    We have cups in 150ml, 160ml, 1870ml and 200ml and larger.

    I will mix and match for CS members and all the saucers are the same size as well

    You can view our range here https://www.casaespresso.com.au/ancap-italian-cups.html

    we are updating the website with more cup options, particularly the beautiful decorated cups like the ones above.

    Feel free to PM me or call for any information

    I have many different sized cups but far and away the most used/called for ones are a 180ml cup used for a double cappuccino. This works very nicely for my and many others taste buds filling the cup by doing a hard pour of the microfoamed milk into a double shot (~60ml including crema) of espresso. With the proper degree of frothing this results in the traditional 1:1:1 ratio of espresso:steamed milk:froth which my buds find to be a wonderful combination for most beans. Using the same cup with a double shot of espresso and making a latte or flat white the coffee is over-powered by the milk.

    I'm so with your ur Mum, Antony :-) 2 sips and it's gone!

    I think I'll go with your 1870ml sizing, that sounds like the perfect morning latte

    Decisions decisions! , Size vs style vs pretty little picture on the sides !!

    My wife thinks the same way!

    I enjoy a paper thin cup for tea but love the thick walled variety for coffee.
