When buying new espresso cups, always keep in mind that the maximum filling capacity of the cups can vary greatly. An espresso cup ideally offers a capacity between 40 ml - 90 ml and is particularly thick-walled. The thicker the cup, the longer the heat of the espresso is preserved. In addition, the shapely vessels are a real eye-catcher! Nowadays, it's child's play to choose the right shapes, colors and sizes. In terms of appearance, there are two things in particular that you should pay closer attention to - the design of the saucer and the top cup. Another feature you could look for when choosing the right espresso cup is, for example, that the cup is dishwasher safe. The range of the Aromatico store is also very large in terms of espresso cups. For example, you can choose from porcelain cups as well as ceramic ones. The offered coffee cups and espresso cups in our store are always of good quality and can be purchased for a reasonable price. Think about what they are looking for in an espresso cup and they will find a vessel that meets all your needs and that they can buy online quickly and easily. Experience the pleasure of coffee in style and bring a piece of Italy to your home with the right tableware!
THE ESPRESSO CUP: THOUGHT OUT TO THE SMALLEST DETAIL
Anyone who thinks an espresso cup has achieved its typical shape by chance will now be wide-eyed. The slightly conical shape of the espresso cup and a rounded bottom are ideal for espresso, as this allows the crema to expand optimally and spans the surface thinly. Since the cup is larger than the incoming espresso, the crema has plenty of room to develop. A rather small opening of the espresso cup ensures a lower surface tension of the crema, which is thus retained longer.
We recommend placing the espresso cups on the upper shelf of the portafilter / espresso machine, if possible. The cups can be preheated there. Place the cups with the bottom on the shelf to enable preheating. If the top edge accidentally makes direct contact with the heat source, it can heat up so much that it becomes too hot for your lips. Making coffee is immediately much more fun when you have the right utensils for the job at home!
Aromatico tip: Fill the espresso cup with hot water before use and pour it out just before the espresso is to flow in. This way, despite the small amount of liquid, the espresso will stay hot for a particularly long time and the taste will not change so quickly, because the cooling will start later.
