    Hi Intellidepth,

    Dont know about the 500ml, but my 750ml Motta is 93mm diam. (widest) just before the rounded base. I use this jug a lot with my Domobar Levetta.

    Regards

    Thanks Trevor. Sounds like Ill have to practise a little to find the sweet-spot in these jugs compared to my wider-based cheapies.

    While you were typing your post, I was buying them from Coffee Parts... now awaiting the delivery.

    Approx 84-85mm at the base for the 500ml

    Thanks Framey.

    The Mottas are impressive. Very happy.

    Would have loved to have had them when I had a much less powerful machine, as the angled sides and narrower bases assist the tumble in a phenomenal way.

    Had to adjust my technique and reduce the steaming power on my VBM to suit the 500ml, but I can get fine leaves easily now with the Motta spout compared to my cheapies. Thats what I bought them for, and Im impressed.

    Worth it? If youve got the money and love doing latte art, yes.
