notNeutral - worth it ?

Recommended Posts

I like the look of these and like the plain white (I know some prefer more colourful cups but the white fits the decor and SWMBO's requirements lol!) but the price is putting me (her) off. Only want a couple of 8oz.

Where is best to buy them right now ? Online sources seem limited to Amazon (they only do the 8oz anyway and this is CoffeeHit via Amazon) and CH direct and with CH direct, the delivery charges for just 2 cups kills it for me.

 

More reasonable alternatives or just quit being a tight @rse and buy them ?

 

Cheers

They are nice cups , and those are about the only places that sell them . People have done group order on here to bring down the postage and prices previously .( at coffehit ) .

Yes your being tight ......

These are the only cups that I use (mainly because they are the only cups I own)

 

They are strong but they arent strong enough to withstand a rapid trip to the floor tiles (as Mrs WD discovered)

 

I bought my first lot from Coffeehit. I bought in packs of 6 a this brought the price / cup down.

I'd have to echo what everyone else says... They are great to hold and great to drink from. You get what you pay for.... a premium cup :)

Another thought

 

8oz is great for hot chocolate but I find the 6oz cups a better size for coffee

I agree WD. I find 5oz is perfect for a flat white (I like a cappa from the 8 )

hmmmm... you guys have got me thinking. I do like an 8oz as I tend to drink a lot of latte's but recently have found that by the end of the cup I'm a little "milked out". I have some 6oz bog standard white cups (nothing special, they came with the Silvia bundle) so might go crazy and get some 5oz NN's as well - will have options then and if buying 4 cups, it makes the delivery less of a hit per cup (self justification gene just kicked in hard!)

 

... then again, who in their right mind would have 4 pukka NN cups and 2 crappy old ones ruining the party.... maybe have to go for 2 of each size

 

ahhhh crap..... the wife's gonna kill me ! lol!

I always used to drink from mugs, but since joining here I tried the NN 5oz and won't ever go back to a mug. 5oz is perfect for a flat white. Everyone who tries one says it's the best they've tasted, I'm sure it's the espresso, milk ratio rather than my Barista skills.

I think they are well worth the money. I first discovered them at Intelligentsia when in the states. I thought it was great that you could buy the very same cups you were served your delicious coffee in. I brought back 2 8oz and a filter mug (these are the intelli ones so have the red rim). I ended up breaking one and was so relieved to find them available in the UK. They look great, are nice to hold, and the 5oz and 8oz are just perfect for latte art. Splash out...

I have to say I'm not so keen on the espresso cups tho. The handle is too oddly shaped and small to be able to hold steadily (unless you're 7 years old perhaps).

Love the 5oz-ers tho. Best flat white recepticle out there!


Coffee enema anyone?
