    My new Illy Crystals :) ...

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Thought some lovers of fine coffee cups might appreciate an action shot or two of my new "Illy Crystal Espresso Cups" 8-).... These were sourced by Dennis and are part one of two sets that are the last of their kind (for now anyway).

    Thanks again Den.... :)

    Hmmm.... :-?

    Im not too sure t0fu. Mind you, after taking the photos above, the brew was still within the ideal drinking temperature for me, probably 60-65C or so. Normally, espresso shots dont hang around long enough for them to cool down too much... Down the hatch they go ;D

    My wallet is VERY lucky that I didnt see your shots when those cups were available.

    Congratulations to both you and Dennis on your superb taste *[smiley=thumbsup.gif]

    Yours in awe... Carrie
