  • What do you drink out of??

    Id like to start a post to get a snap shot of what evey one drinks out of. Take a photo of your cup(s) mugs, and glasses and a description if they are unique / fancy or a great history behind them.

    I got some new cups the other week for my Birthday and thought I might share with you all what I am now drinking out of.

    I got some ACF 180ml Cappuccino Cups and Tulip Espresso Cups in Brown

    I am loving the thick walls that have great heat retention. The only thing I need to get used to is the small handles. I have got large fingers so I need to pinch at the handle as I can not get my finger through. I do like putting my finger through the handle on capp cups, but will sacrifice this for better heat retention.

    So what do you Drink out of??????? :-/

        Ive got some brown tulip cups, Nuova Point I think ... Theyre beautiful ... Some crazy guy I met on some coffee forum imported a huge number of them recently

        Seriously, I have NP tulips, cap cups and demitasse, two ACF white tulips and am dreaming of some red Terra Keramik tulips.

        My favourite visitor request: "Dont you have anything bigger? Can I have mine in a mug?"

          Dont worry too much Michelle. In that case, regardless of the size of the cup it ends up in a mug anyway! : ;D

            I bought these 90ml cups somewhere a few months ago and like them, they were about $2 each with a saucer too.

                  I have these that I got from an auction (where my son works).
                  They were from the Ansett disposal auction.
                  Originally picked up 300 to make sure I got the dozen I was after.

                  They are german made, Rosenthal, and have the Ansett logo on the bottom as well.

                  I like them because they are round on the bottom on the inside, not flat.
                  I think it helps with pouring rosettas.

                  They are 200ml.

                    I collect cups, so anything that takes my fancy gets taken!

                    The enamel demitasse were purchased in Florence. The Krispy Kreme has a donut in the bottom of it, so I couldnt resist the novelty of it and the fact that it fits neatly under Silvias portafilter! The Bodums were cheap at Victorias basement, theyre just so beautifully light as well! And I picked up three different sizes of Duralex in Melbourne and Sydney. The shot glasses are Ikea 2 dollar jobs (gotta love Ikea! Well, I do at least!) and some kind soul at Veneziano gave me some glasses as a souvenir of my visit there... 8-) These are just a few examples of my faves.

                            in red, yellow and blue have to be my favourite, except of course for the Nuevo point espresso cups adorning my Domus.

                            anyone have Latte glass tips?

                              Some scotch glasses I stole from the Uni pub. Lets me have a nice view of the pour, and they look pretty sexy.
