  • My new Illy Crystals :) ...

    Thought some lovers of fine coffee cups might appreciate an action shot or two of my new "Illy Crystal Espresso Cups" 8-).... These were sourced by Dennis and are part one of two sets that are the last of their kind (for now anyway).

    Thanks again Den....

    Mal.

          Hmmm.... :-?

          Im not too sure t0fu. Mind you, after taking the photos above, the brew was still within the ideal drinking temperature for me, probably 60-65C or so. Normally, espresso shots dont hang around long enough for them to cool down too much... Down the hatch they go ;D

            Oooohhh Mal, what deadly photographs.  Im in danger of drooling on my keyboard  
            My wallet is VERY lucky that I didnt see your shots when those cups were available.

            Congratulations to both you and Dennis on your superb taste  [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

            Yours in awe... Carrie

                    Nice! All that gold and silver. I bet youre still wearing the Diadema grin, Mal!

                    Quick - someone turn one of those photos into a CS logo!
