Beautifully designed cups which are built to last. Thin at the top and thicker at the bottom. Help to make the espresso moment that bit more special
Negative Product Points
I'm really sorry, but I can't think of a negative. This sentence is only there to take me to twenty words!
I'd tried for a while to get hold of some illy logo cups, so when I chanced on these unexpectedly it was quite a thrill. The rest of our holiday in Belgium was spent watching the hours till I could get home and try them out!
These cups are truly wonderful. I only have two, and it's always a small disappointment when I have to pull a shot into a lesser demitasse. The cups somehow just feel right in the hand, beautifully balanced and matched with excellent saucers, with a high bowl so you can put a biscotti next to your cup without it falling in the middle all the time. I treat the cups with care, but they seem very durable, the dishwasher is no problem and I've had no problem with chips.
I was wandering through a small village in Belgium (forget the name) and just bumped into them next to a Francis! Francis!
