You’d be amazed at the variety of espresso cups which exist in Italy. They have a couple of things in common – their size and the fact that sets of these small and cute coffee cups make original Christmas gifts.
For espresso addicts, like me, and lovers of Italian coffee, a set of espresso cups can make an interesting talking point after any evening blessed with Italian food.
I’ve always liked espresso cups, and we’ve got several different designs in our Milan apartment. Now I would not describe myself as a collector, but I do think espresso cups are highly collectable. Do you know any espresso cup collectors?
Well, if you have not yet discovered the joys of Italian and Italian-style espresso cups, this post will show you where to look. Indeed, both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk have quite a number of espresso cups and if you are short of Christmas gift ideas, then this post may help.
For the more furbi among you, presenting someone you know with a set of Italian style cups this Christmas might be a clever way of dropping a hint about a vacation in Italy in the New Year.
On to the list, some of which are Amazon bestsellers, others of which are not, I just liked them! Oh, by the way, cappuccino cups also make very good teacups – but don’t tell any Italians I told you so. Happy Christmas Shopping!
