  • New latte glasses

    I purchased a couple of Bodum double layered glasses for latte and long machs today.
    The insulating effect is amazing, the drink stayed nice and warm while the outer layer was cool and easy to hold onto unlike single layer glassware holding hot drinks. Well worth the $$$$. I just hope nobody drops one......................!!!

    Ive also read somewhere that they are semi-allergic to a dishwasher.

    Have seen them in some of the google vids, very cool looking

      I had two of the Assam Espresso glasses. I now have one. >

      The only problem with the insulation is that when they do break - theres twice the glass all over the kitchen floor.

          I bought a couple of the latte ones and a couple of the espresso ones a few months ago. Shortly after receiving them I thought perhaps I should have bought a gold fish or Betta to put in them, but after a few months of use Im completely stoked. Still look brand new after hand washing.

                My first post here, and whaddya know, im after some new glass :-)

                Where can i find Bodum brand glass besides going online? Any shops around the city/shopping centres that sell Bodum? Most online retailers seem to be out of stock of the 250ml Bodum Assam glasses.

                Cheers.

                    Im a fan of the Bodum double-wall glasses, having accumulated several of the convex-sided Pavina model over the last year or so. In hindsight, I would have gone for the Assam or the conical-tapered Canteen because they are marginally easier/more secure to hold.

                    Ive had no problems with cleaning them in the dishwasher.

                    Where to buy them? Ive seen them in many Myers stores, some House stores, and at a coffee specialist in Balaclava (not a site sponsor, so I dont know if I should name em).

                    The double-wall glasses are great for keeping coffee warm (or cold drinks cold) if you sometimes find yourself distracted by work or by an attention-seeking child. Having a home office, its often both…

                      I bought some bodum pavina espresso glasses at a Myer where there was a 30% off sale on coffee / tea items. This was about a week ago.

                        I also had the pavina, long and short glasses. The long ones both cracked (my wife was going through a clumsy stage) so I wouldnt recommend the large sized ones. The others however have been fine (unless you drop them).

                        However, I recently got the canteen ones as well (mid sized) and prefer them now, as they are more stable (the pavinas are like egg shaped, so not too stable).

                        I hand wash mine every day, after I finish the coffee, and then back on top of the machine. Easy to clean, great glasses, look good as well.

                          Ive had two of each (latte and espresso). Ive broken a friends once (beer mug sized one - spectacular explosion!)

                          They are fine in the dishwasher - the logo will wear off but the glass has no problems

                            Just bought 4 latte glasses and 2 espresso ones - got them from Macmonts (hospitality industry suppliers) for $48 for four latte, $16 for two espresso - loved them since seeing them at the XO Supper Club and Maggie Beers farm 8-)

                              sound intersting. I ordered a couple of bodum canteen online to give them a try.
