Espresso CupsEspresso cups are the cute, its mini, tiny little bundles of cuteness. They hold about one to two ounces of espresso. Big tip to a great-tasting cup of espresso is to warm the espresso cup first. Many espresso machines have warmers built-in on the top. I have one espresso machine, which has a dome to keep the espresso cups hot.

Most espresso cup shapes are similar. It is just the materials which are different in their construction. It is generally cylindrical shaped, so it gives an even whole flavor and keeps the heat regular. It also allows you to see the crema in its finest form.

The stainless steel espresso cups keep the heat in perfectly. They are easy to clean and are well worth the investment. Porcelain espresso cups look pretty and elitist, but they really dont keep the heat in. You need a thick walled cup to get the benefit.

If the espresso cups and saucers are laden with coffee glommage stains you can do many things to get them to sparkle again. The best thing to do is to soak it in Polident, makes the cups sparkle like new.
