Want to talk espresso but not sure which forum? If so, this is the right one.

Say Jaime, could you measure the liquid volume between that Teal cup and the Not Neutral cup for me?

Sure. Here you go...

Both with 60 ml of water:

And filling them to the rim....

First the notNeutral: 87.3 ml

Next, Teal cup: 97.6 ml

EDIT: Was able to upload the photos...

notNeutral Lino espresso cup: 87.3 ml
Amazon Teal cup: 97.6 ml

Thanks, I have the Not Neutral in black also, I like the looks of the Teal & Red also with the minor amount of additional volume for a macchiato will be nice.
I thought you would just use that new Cafe Lusso shot glass to measure (I just had one arrive too)...but, I guess we all have some idle time on our hands!

Had to put away several to make space for the recent ones.... illy are still among my favorites but those notNeutral look and feel like winners.

I confirmed this cup is simply horrible for espresso. The thin and tall does as said, very bitter first sips followed by sour espresso.

Image
This cup on the other hand must be wide enough because espresso is much better from it.

I think I am not done buying cups.

I definitely think that the cup shape has a bearing on experience of the coffee. In order from left to right is my preference I really want to like some of the more aesthetically pleasing cups in my collection but find that an old fat thick walled IPA cup tends to give the best experience and mouthfeel. Unlike wine and wine glasses thick lips with gentle curves seem to be best IMHO, for me anyway.

Jamie, While you are at it, I would like to encourage you to pick up some of these. They are my favorite scheme on the NotNeutral cups. I have the demi's, capps, small latte and filter mug in this color scheme.
