Cups

Recommended Posts

I think it's time I get myself some nice cups. ACME, Not Neutral, etc. Not too fussed about colours (though I'd prefer white, black or grey), and I'd want saucers, too.

 

A full set (6? 8? 12? cups of varies sizes) would be ideal for someone passing on an old collection to replace.

And if you arent too fussed on colours try the acme outlet

The 280ml latte cups from ACME are great. Currently enjoying a stunning cappuccino out of a 355mL, which is a liiiiitle big for me.

 

ACME are sadly all out of the latte cups. :(

Caravan stock Acme(scroll down page a bit). With a bit of a markup of course.

Thanks ashcroc. ACME also sell direct -- £69 for a set of 6 of their current range, which in all honesty isn't bad (Caravan sell the same set for £100). Here's still hoping someone has an old set trapped in the back of their cupboard requiring rescue. :)

May also be worth checking your local charity shops to see if they have anything you like the look of. The ones near me always seem to have coffee sets in the window, usually with a coffee pot incorrectly marked as a tea pot!

Not a bad shout... that hadn't actually occurred to me. Day off Friday, sounds like a trip to the old charity emporium is in order.

FYI - I gave this a shot yesterday, and while I didn't find anything that suited my needs, I did pick up a set of demitasse cups I think my dad will enjoy for his new bean-to-cup machine:

A little closer to what I want now, I think;

 

ACME (old or new style) - 250mL latte cup

Verona large cappucino cup - 250mL

 

Similar OK too -- capacity I'm aiming for is in the 230-260mL range!

 

Anyone have any kicking around?
