    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.
