Detailed Commentary

I reviewed these cups' big brothers, the cappuccino version elsewhere on this site. Like the cappa cups, I LOVE these cups. Heavy, well made, amazing design, and best of all, totally functional. I have to admit that they haven't supplanted my Illy Schwung cup set that I use daily, but they do rock, and they do look cool.

Total volume of the cup is roughly 2 oz to the rim.

These keep my espresso shots hot, which is cool, and they do it well. The only drawback to the product is the relatively mikey mouse saucers which are not up the the workmanship standards of the cups, but are still good looking and functional nonetheless.

I have not yet tasted any "metalic" taste from these, which is something that I rarely taste anyway - I guess I'm immune.

Buying Experience

Got them from the folks at Baratza. They retail for about $36, I got them a bit cheaper.
