    Re: latte cups/mugs

    I struggled with this. One of my wifes friends pointed us to a commercial restaurant and cafe supplier that also sells to the public and it was like an Aladins cave. (My wife had a field day on non coffee related buys!) We did however physically visit it. Im not sure if they take orders online but by the nature of their business theyd have to take - pack, and send orders...

    Most catering supply stores do courier orders. If they have some sort of online presence, chances are they will send you whatever you order.

    These guys seem to have a huge Duralex range.

    NON Site-Sponsor link removed

    I havent used them but they might be worth a try...

    Good luck!

    N.B.

    I must say ive not been able to find proper cappuccino glassware in normal retail outlets.

    Id say your best bet is the local wholesaler that deals with cafes.

    I just went over to hotel agencies on Nicholson st (melbourne).. They have a pretty good range of _proper_ cafe style cups. Got some nice 180ml capp tulips and a range of picardies :) ..for very reasonable prices.

    Alternatively if budget is not a priority, just order from one of the site sponsors. The ACF tulips are like the best around.. far thicker walled than the AFC (aust fine china) tulips that look similar but are 180ml instead of 160ml and have slightly thinner walls... then again, I got them for only $3 each so im not complaining.

    Libbey duratuff glasses are fantastic. Although they werent originally designed for lattes (I dont think the Duralex was either!), they are awesome bar wear. They simply dont shatter like Duralex. IF they do break, they break in neat pieces. Ive dropped heaps of these glasses from the top of the machine to the bench. They bounce and survive. Duralex on the other hand would shatter in to a million pieces. (Ive even had duralex glasses shatter in my hand just picking it off the machine).

    Another neat feature about the Libbey duratuffs is that they have an inbuilt 30mL ridge. They look classy but come at a price.

    Yeah, I can vouch for these too, Libbey are the goods. I mean theyre expensive, but not ridiculous, and well worth it. I have both the Libbey Endeavor (with a 30ml ridge) and the Libbey Gibralter Rocks. Theyre my standard latte glasses. The gibralter has a cool inner shape, very tulip-esque. I think theyre 237ml from memory, and the endeavors are 207ml. I use the Endeavors for single shot lattes, the Gibralters for doubles.

    I read somewhere that the tampered glass used in duralex glasses wouldnt necessarily shatter on the first drop. However, hairline fractures within the glass itself would start to push the glass towards shattering. The next time the glass is moved, it just shatters suddenly into many pieces.


    TS: Have felt the libbey gibraltar glasses yesterday at hotel agencies. Yeah, they do feel really good n solid.
