I got some Rapha mugs for Christmas, they are definitely the way forward for impressing cycling chums with a long coffee.

 

if you want some matching cups without the stripe the not neutral cups are available from coffeehit for about £7.70.

I get my double espresso cups from costa and my latte glasses. Both come with saucers at £3 and £4 respectively if i recall correctly

If they are the same as the Rapha cups that is around £32.50 cheeper without a stripe; that's one expensive paint job !

 

The coffeehit notneutral cups are same design and shape as Intelligentsia/Rapha ones but fraction of the price. The saucers are not my faves, but we rarely use them anyway.

it sure is, I still want some though.

 

but i quit my job this week to go hunting for something more interesting so expensive toys are out of budget for the time being.

I'm a fan of the bodum double walled cups. They don't have a handle but don't get hot. They also keep your coffee hot.

People always comment on them.

I also have the Bodum 2.5 oz insulated ones.... They are stylish, attractive and functional. You can get a double shot in them and they are wide enough for twin spouts too. Great to drink from...

Saw them while on holiday in Amsterdam in a speciality coffee shop. Was going to buy a boxed pair but then saw boxes of 6 in their sale for less! They are fragile though and I wouldn't put them in the dishwasher even though it says you can!

For espresso, the best I have found are Londinium, really heavy and excellent at heat retention. If you can't afford a Londinium 1, you can afford a pair of their espresso cups - and dream...
