Espresso Cups!

Serve your java in style with beautiful, elegant
espresso cups. You can find a great selection
of espresso cups that are cute, elegant, trendy
or classic. The best espresso cups available are
double-layered to hold in the heat and to keep
your espresso hotter longer. You can find
double-layered cups in glass as well as ceramic,
and there are a great variety of designs to choose
from. You can match your espresso cups with
your coffee cups, or let them stand on their own
to make a unique statement.

Espresso cups are also referred to as "demitasse"
cups and hold about 2 or 3 ounces of fluid.
Cappuccino mugs, are larger, and contain 6 to 8 ounces.
Cappuccino is actually espresso mixed with hot milk,
which explains the larger size of cappuccino mugs.
Both Cappuccino and espresso cups are available
in glass, and there are many types of glass mugs
and cups available. The classic glass espresso cup
is a small glass cup with chrome handles and trimming.
These often have "little feet" at the bottom, or the cups
can be placed flat on a table. A very trendy design is
a glass, egg-shaped espresso cup without handles.
Or you can purchase little mug-shaped espresso cups
with matching plates. You can find clear glass, tinted
glass or blue glass espresso cups.

Ceramic espresso cups are widely available, and can
be purchased in classic white with gold trim, or in more
bold designs. Italian style espresso cups have solid
colors on the outside and egg white interior, or you can
purchase espresso cups with Italian scenes painted
on the outside. Many ceramic espresso cups have art
prints on the outside, and there are also novelty espresso
cups designed by well-known artists. Perhaps you
prefer a more classic design. While Victorian designs
might seem more appropriate for teacups, delicate
petals and leaf designs give your espresso set a
springtime, feminine look. Classic Dutch blue and
white ceramic design looks smart and crisp, and is
an excellent accent to your kitchen set. Whatever
type of ceramic espresso cups you choose, make
sure that your ceramic espresso cups are dishwasher
safe so the design won't fade.

For something different, try stainless steel espresso
cups with chrome handles and matching saucers.
Blue stoneware espresso cups have a natural look
and are a good accompaniment to organic espresso
and a whole wheat biscotti. You can find espresso
cups made out of unique materials that transcend
the common choices of ceramic and glass. You might
have to look a bit harder, but if originality is important
to you, it is not hard to find what you are looking for.

An attractive way to store and display your espresso
cups is on a stylish espresso cup "tree" that can usually
store up to six cups with the matching saucers stacked
in the middle. You can find these trees in chrome or silver;
make sure that they are rust resistant, since they will
most likely be placed close to a kitchen sink or a place
where there will be a lot of moisture. You can choose
revolving or stationary espresso cup trees in various
colors, styles and designs.

Once you have found attractive espresso cups to complete
the look of your dining ware, invite some guest over to
enjoy espresso in your new cups. You will be amazed at
how much more special espresso and dessert will be
when served on special plates and cups, and make sure
you keep the details of where you ordered your espresso
cups and the name of the brand and the style so you can
order more. Garrett
