  • !!SOURCED!! - Espresso Cups/Cappuccino Set

    After high quality espresso cup set and cappuccino set of cups/saucers - thick quality porcelain..

    Would prefer coffee branded cups - La Marzocco, Elektra, Piazza Doro, Lavazza etc... or plain white.. and be prepared to pay up to $60 per set of 6 espresso cups and $80 for the cappuccinos.

    Let me know if anyone can help me track these down -

    Thanks, A.

            SCP--it might seem a bit fussy to insist on a price range, but if you havent investigated coffee cups you should be prepared. They go from a couple of dollars a cup up to the stratosphere, and a range will allow those who know to recommend helpfully.

              Sorry guys -

              Didnt realise a pricing range would be such a hassle!

              Ill be inclined to pay up to $60 per set of 6 espresso cups and $80 for the cappuccinos.. not interested in $$$ range - just good quality general mill cafe quality branded italian porcelain..

              Thanks guys

                Hi scp1906 - you could do a little homework in a commercial hospitality supplies store.They usually have styles from very traditional to very modern, and the more robust product to survive cafes and hotels .My local had  225ml cappuccino cups with saucers for $4.50 each - really good quality china , and very modern espresso cups for $ 2.25 each.
                mmm , fine coffee in fine china !

                  I bought a couple of sets of italian ACF cups from Jetblack, one of the sponsors, for about the price you want. Nice and thick and look great. Give them a call. I got super quick service to boot.

                      Hi Hotshod

                      If SCP isnt interested, and they are 200ml or bigger in size, Im definitely interested in taking them off your hands - feel free to PM me...

                      Cheers

                        Unfortunately there guys are tiny , 90ml to the very top (overflowing) so 60-70ml is their useful volume.

                        cheers

                          No problems, thanks - a bit small for me: I wouldnt be able to fit the milk in to my lattes!

                          Beautiful looking cups, though, and a bargain for that price!

                            ...I reckon you should seriously consider devoting some time to searching through all the op-shops in the area.
                            Not only do they cost next to nothing, but more importantly, you often pick up excellent examples of Nuova Point/ACF/IPA cupware, sometimes branded with rare and/or no longer existing coffee brands, or even the limited edition commisioned artists sets that Vittoria Caffe and Illy produce.
                            I collect, and have picked up close to 200 varying espresso cups, and Im pretty fussy about what I buy.
                            If you are prepared to be a little patient and tenacious you will pick up a set of the highest quality that may also be rare and interesting...
                            Good Luck!
