I had a nice idea while looking at my espresso cups today. Wouldn't it be great to have a thread pictures with all sorts of cups people use, and hopefully a small writeup on why they like/dislike them.

Here's the cups I use daily:

They're quite heavy and hold heat very well, and the logo is quite nice too (there's one in the middle of the saucer as well)

I'm still in the process of getting cappa and latte cups, but I have a sample coming my way hopefully tomorrow.

It's an italian coffee brand. I've never tried any of their coffee, but the logo was so nice I couldn't pass on them :D

My cappa cup sample:

The limegreen stripe is made out of rubber, so it's comfy to hold while hot. No real latte art in the pic, but oh so tasty.
I only have one at the moment, but I'll order more of them as soon as I need something from the finnish supplier. The cup is made by Koziol.

My espresso cup of choice:

I like the Moak cups since they are nice and thick, and retain heat well. They are also so darn good looking :D
(The fact that they are the only cups I own doesn't change anything :D)

Come on now, I'm pretty sure that there are more people in here using cups than me, Fullsack and ccfore!

Okay, I guess I'll play along.

I have a lot of Cappuccino cups because for a while that was my drink of choice. Lately it has been more macchiatos and Americanos though.

In the first picture you can see my Cafe Vita cup which is just an ACF cup with the Cafe Vita logo on it. I really like it, great for pouring latte art, its thick and retains heat well, and it looks nice! It's pretty darn strong too, it took a fall with another cup of mine and there wasn't a thing wrong with it, unfortunately I can't say the same for the other cup.

Then we have my Monkey cup. This was my dads cup and I believe it holds 8-10 ounces. So I use this for my americanos. It's just a mug...with monkeys and trees on it...

Next there is a black and white Macchiato cup with flowers on it (Far Left second picture)
My girlfriend bought me this cup, it comes with a matching saucer. Its pretty delicate feeling, and I actually prefer my ACF macchiato cup to this one. But I must say I do like the nice design on it. It came in a set of two, and the other one has the same design but reversed colors.
The next cup I actually picked up from Value village for a dollar. It says Italia D'Oro Espresso and its made by Pillivuyt. It has a nice weight to it, pretty simple nice feeling cup.
Of course I cannot forget my Sweet Maris cup. I love everything about these cups...I wish I had one with a monkey on it though...
Lastly another cup I picked up at Value Village for a dollar it says BIA underneath... pretty good weight interesting design and I liked it so I bought it!

My third contribution to this thread.

This is Espressowarehouse.com's shotglas, with a La Pavoni single shot of Kenya AA roasted 2 days ago.

Sadly, it's too tall for my Pavoni, but if I hold it at an angle, it works fine.

It's a really nice shotglass, thick and sturdy, and it holds heat well!
