  • Drinking out of stainless steel cups... no thanks.

    An odd one, but you know those stainless steel, thick walled demitasses that get around? Does anyone drink out of those? I
    had one floating around, so I thought Id give it a go. Its just not a nice experience drinking out of one of these.  I just dont like the feel of drinking out of one.

    I think the one I got is an AVANTI demi, not that I think itd make a diff.

    Am I alone on this or....? Gimme ceramic any day of the week.

    Hmm, yeah I dont see the appeal - did it taste metallic?

    I find I can taste teaspoons... could you taste the cup?

          I have some I got from Aldi.

          As I dont usually drink espresso I cant comment as I havent used them for myself much.

          I keep a couple at work and use them for when making coffee for the boss.
          They dont seem to bother him.

          The double wall does a good job of keeping the coffee hot.
          I heat the inside with boiling water and wipe dry before pouring the the shot.

            I agree... I much prefer drinking out of porcelain. Something about the feel of it - makes me feel like Im camping!

                I have a set of espresso Avantiss but as I dont drink much espresso I use them for test shots The Saucers are a bit tacky too.

                On the other hand I have Avanti Mugs in my camping kit and they are great They also suit my recently purchased Metal Syphon 8-)

                    I was given some as a gift years ago and even though I didnt like drinking out of them, I could never throw them out. Ive now found theyre great for those younger guests that drop by and order babycinos.

                      You get a couple with the sun6910. They went straight back in the box which went in the roof out of sight. Give me porcelain or glass any day.

                        Kohi, i do the same. The little man and any other children that may be over drink babycinos from them. It means i can relax in the knowledge that even if dropped they are safe (maybe a sore toe at worse). As Cyril mentioned mine came free with the 6910.
