I know this has come up a load of times, but things change! About time I replace my set of flat white mugs..... Any recommendations? With pictures for a bonus :)

 

Cheers

Those are stunning, really fancy buying a full set for the studio but can't justify :-( may just get a couple to play with!

Same cups we use at work. Really nice to pour into. Also, nice to drink from! :)

Very very nice.... Now just need to convince myself (and the wife) that over £7 per cup is worth it! :D

Another option would be one of these:

I bought one and really like it for a flat white - reassuringly thick and lovely to pour into and drink from. My only (small) complaint is that I can't fit my fingers into it easily to hold it by the handle...no big deal though as the whole thnig fits nicely in the hand.

 

The notneutral ones look great too though, and I'm tempted by one of their 8oz latte cups myself. Think it might go on my letter to Santa.

I hate cups that you can't fit your finger through!

 

Just ordered 6x6oz notneutral cups :-)

So pretty. Are they worth the price?

Its not just the asthetics which attracts me, but, (particularly for espresso and brewed coffee) the effect on mouth-feel & taste.

 

I have some old Illy espresso cups which make espresso much more enjoyable than the Has Bean tulip style ones I have. Like the Notneutral cups the bottoms are completely rounded with a thicker rim, which somehow improves taste and mouth-feel.

I'd say yes. I feel that the price of decent quality cups is too high generally though. These cups are beautiful to look at, lovely to drink from and hold and pour into!

YOU GUYS ARE SOOOOOOO BAD FOR MY BANK BALANCE!!!!!!!

 

thanks

 

I'll try and keep them quiet and act surprised when someone notices my cups are different! I'm not spending anyone elses money or spending what I don't have but I do end up having to defend my heinous spending on a daily basis!!

I'm tempted by some of these. I'm never sure about saucers. I only use them for guests which inevitably means I'm digging around in the cupboard for them when someone comes round.

 

I'm thinking about two of the larger ones as I have the d'ancap 150ml cups for small cappuccinos.

Hahaha, I totally know that feeling! I've put them on my santa list, possibly a bit late, so if they don't arrive I shall buy some in the new year. I spent the money on a new steam valve instead as that has needed replacing for the last year!

I went for a case of the 6oz/180's too for exactly the same reason, I even only intended on buying a pair myself but when I reaslised 6 wasn't all that much more money I took a case + 1 espresso cup to trial whether I'll be needing a set of those too!! I don't normally bother with saucers either but for some reason I just like to have them! A purchase of cups just doesn't seem complete without them!

 

They do Nick :-)

Awesome, Cheers!

I too need a new steam valve for Silvia, it's not that bad but it is bugging me! Mostly when you shut the valve after steaming and the leaking wand blows bubbles in your pristine microfoam! other than that it doesn't really leak much but I do have a squeeky knob!

Nick do you have a v2 or v3 Silvia? I have a spare v2 valve if you wanted it?
