  • What cup size?

    After much research, i have finally purchased my new ACF cups. Opted for the 160ml (I believe intended for long blacks). As i enjoy my coffee a fraction stronger, i plan on using them for flat whites and the very odd cap. Searching initially through the CS threads i noticed there werent to many posts on what size/brand cups people were using. So im interested to hear what everyones using?

    So, to get the ball rolling heres mine,

    Espresso, Ristretto, Machiatto; Bormiolli Rocco, 100ml glasses
    Latte; Bormiolli Rocco, 220ml glasses
    Flat White, cap; ACF 160ml

    ACF 160mL cups for me too! I use them for flat whites.

    Bodum Pavina (around 80mL?) for piccolo latte, sometimes put an espresso or doppio ristretto in them.

    Some German Demitasse cups that I also use for an espresso or doppio ristretto.

      Maxwell Williams round Demitasse 100ml cups  - only ever use half of it though. 8-)
      Various designed `short black` cups.
      For the milk coffee drinkers that drop in, whatever is in the cupboard - pick your own. :P
      The littel middle white one is my favourite!

        Doppio ristretto piccolo latté--the 100 ml Duralex glasses <----here, full.
        Doppio ristretto--70 ml Bodum Pavina 20-30 ml (P.R. says theyre 80 ml--but only if overflow counts)

            This thread is clearly not what I thought it was about.  Oh, well...

            I havent bought cups yet, but, for espresso, Im leaning towards some of the tea cups they use here.  Theyre like porcelain shot glasses, only shorter, thinner-walled, and with beautiful designs.  Ideally, Im hoping to find a potter around here and having something custom designed.  I have no clue what thats going to cost.

            However, the brown Nouva Point and ACF cups have also caught my eye.

                I really dislike drinking espresso out of glass. Ive got this sweet as Malawi-made "village friendly" ristretto cup, which is my absolute favie. Also have a few black Rockingham and brown Nuova Point demitasse. (Actually Im missing two of the latter, I cant find them anywhere).

                For flatties/caps - sexy Black ACF Tulips 8-)

                Im still to find my perfect syphon/pourover drinking cup ... I wouldnt mind a few of the ACF 300ml bowl shaped cups for that purpose, I think :-? They seem to be hard to track down in Australia.

                          These cups are maxwell williams.  Nice and heavy so they hold the heat well.  They also steal the heat if not preheated.  100ml I think.
