    All this talk of ACF cups... they have apparently 'relaunched'. There is a .com website and a .com.au website. No doubt some site sponsors are onto it.

    "ACF Coffee Cups and Saucers have relaunched to supply USA and Europe with our amazing new collection and improved designs built on our strong traditions."

    Yep, I believe its a Chinese company cashing in on the ACF brand name (what a surprise) nothing to do with the original Italian company.

    Not very snobbish but I use dual walled clear glasses. I have a couple of sets in two sizes 235mls and a bigger one maybe 350mls, from memory I think the smaller ones were Bodum, the larger ones I bought cheap from Target or KMart.

    The 235ml one fits under my group and I like how you can see your shot as you pour it and once I make a Latte you can see the milk foam line. I mostly use the larger ones for iced Latte's or when I have a really strong bean that is too much in the 235ml size.

    Agree, found double walled glasses, including the small espresso shot glasses, are the best for retaining heat and a real bonus if the milky drink sizes fit under the grouphead. Hario ribbed have a nice tactility and look to them also. Love that design.

    I wouldn't say *nothing* to do with them. They kept the pricing!

    Hahaha...


    yes.

    Even product Made in China these days is becoming more expensive.

    Chinese companies work in $US and the exchange rate to the $A has dropped through the floor the last 12 months

    I love the loveramics cup range . Yes they are not to cheap but seriously any cup lasts a long time. Love the shape of them , love the colours and for those with big digits you can actually hold on to the cup by the handle!!!

    Been trying to find some Doppio Espresso cups. 130ml. I have found these at Casa Espresso https://www.casaespresso.com.au/verona-espresso.html Functional but prefer a different colour or pattern on them??

    Looking for cups rather than glasses, anyone seen or can recommend somewhere to try

    thanks
