I like both, if possible get a handle (heh....heh...) on both. Considered inker also?

I love the (chunky - thick walled) Acme. I prefer their new shaped handle too. I also love Loveramics but still reach for Acme. In the past I thought I really liked Inker - I think it was because of the array of colours! I rarely use them now (dislike the tiny handle).

This. I genuinely forgot mine have handles, since I just end up wrapping my hand around them!

Machina are as of today stocking the new "Wave" range that has a sensible handle: https://machina-coffee.co.uk/collections/inker-cups/products/inker-wave-range-white-7cl-2-5oz-70ml

I have examples of all three, Acme, Loveramics and Inker. The last two are, I think, much of a muchness. The Acmes are thicker and heavier. I tend to use the Acme for a flat white and one or other of the others for a capo. For espresso I use either a double walled stainless from Ikea or a smart looking Illy.

I really like NotNeutral cups, and Inker cups, as well as Acme... ☺️🤷‍♀️ For assessing flavour in the espresso, a really good quality glass espresso cup (not a shot glass!!!) is an experience not to be missed (truly), but for everyday drinking, my go to is a thick walled porcelain for the feel & comfort in the hand.

I agree about the ridiculously tiny handles on some round-shaped Inker cups (I think they intend for us to pinch the handle rather than put our fingers in it,🤔 which works, but it is unusual😉)... whereas my older Inker tulip-shaped cups have normal sized handles.

ACF make nice cups if you like the thicker porcelain (ACF has the thickest wall of the ones I have); Ancap espresso cups are lovely; and I’ve found some of the cups hailing from eastern europe tend to use a more traditional & thicker porcelain, and they can often be found at bargain prices. 

I am suspicious that even when buying the same brand, the thickness changes depending on when they are made. I have an older Acme cup that is much thicker than my more recent one.🤔🤷‍♀️ There are no guarantees in this life!😉🤣
