If you have a stainless steel fetish, these are definitely the cappa cups for you. Worth every cent, and a piece of art to boot.
Positive Product Points
Very cool design, heavyweight, really do keep the contents warm.
Negative Product Points
Mickey mouse afterthought in the saucers.
Available from www.baratza.com for about $35 a pair, with $5 shipping, which is a bargain because they weigh a ton.
I LOVE these cups. These are by far and away my favorite cappuccino cups, and I have about 6 different types, so I know wence I speak.
Very heavyweight, constructed of Inox 18/8 stainless steel, they feature very sleek curved lines and a very positive feel handle. Workmanship in the cups is beyond first rate. They glisten.
They are also functional as well. I made two cappas the other day and forgot about one of them for about 45 minutes. I noticed it, gave it a stir, and said what the heck, drank a sip and they were still very warm! Amazing! Normally my cappas in a porcelain cup are cold after a half hour!
The only problem I have with these cups is the saucers are a bit lacking. They certainly do not match the lustre and workmanship of the cups. But c'est la vie.
