    Re: Latte glasses

    if you want the ones like most cafes have then your looking for duralex. I got some today at a home wares store for 12 dollars a six pack and some matching machiato glasses for ten dollars. If you dont have any luck then try catering/hospitality gear suppliers. in melbourne there is "chefs hat" and "hotel agencies" probably others but they are the ones I know.

      Try some of the Italian delicatessens, what I mean by that the Italian shops that supply coffee beans, pasta, coffee bits and pieces and other general Italian produce. They usually stock that sort of stuff at a decent price.

        If you want the glass ones that are suggested above you can go to coffeeparts who are a site sponsor and they sell those ones and a few other styles of cups.
        I always browse depament stores and homewares shops when I go past them to see if they ever have any funky cups. Everynow and than I come past some that I like so snap them up when I can and some times at bargain prices.

          I already have the Duralex glasses and they are fine, I was just wanting something a little different. Thanks for your suggestions.

            Bart, Ive been thinking about this one and have finally come up with an answer that might be of some help to you!

            Seeing as were talking about trying to find something "stylish" to show off a nicely made cafe latte, I should think that you could just about use any glass that you like the look of.

            Personally, I like to pick a glass that I like to look at, is comfortable to hold, has a good rim to put your mouth on and will go in the dishwasher (by that I mean it fits in the machine properly). Of course, also consider that if you are using the glass for coffee, think about if you dont mind holding the hot glass or if you would like a handle that is cool to touch. If youre clever with serviettes youll be able to wrap one around a glass in such a fashion as to look great and protect fingers from getting burnt.

            As I dont know what state you are living in, I cant be specific about where to go for glassware. Suffice to say just look at the homewares and kitchen stores as they will be your best bet for a range of different glass ware.

              Sounds like good advice Scoota Gal and I have my eyes peeled, Im in Williamstown, Victoria by the way. Im sure Ill stumble across something that takes my fancy eventually, not big on serviettes though, a wise woman once told me that "if you need a serviette to hold it, its too hot". Makes sense to me, Ill just keep browsing, no great hurry, its all good fun. Youre doing a good job as a mod BTW.

              Bart.

                What about the Bodum double walled range. They look pretty funky, with the added bonus of being insulated so no more burny ow owsTM Brett @ Fatboy.

                  Ill take a look at the Bodums, I already have their cups, saucers and mugs. Why not complete the set?! Especially in light of the "burny ow ows" factor. Is that a technical term?

                    The Bodum insulated Glasses look very nice - just be aware that you may get burny ow ows to your lips and tongue as they keep the coffee hotter for longer.

                      I just bought some of the Bodum Pavina Double Walled Glasses.

                      They are brilliant - we love them.

                      As has been said - no "burny ow ows". ;D

                      And the coffee looks great in them.

                          You may want to be careful about trying to use any old glass for a latte as I cracked about three ordinary glasses here trying to do the same. They were admittedly very low quality elcheapo ones, so I figure that for a high temp liquid they need to be duralex or equivalent.

                          Just my 2c worth!

                            Apologies for reviving an old thread.

                            Anyone know where to get the standard Duralex latte glasses in Canberra?
