Espresso glasses are not as widely used as the classic espresso cup, but this in no way diminishes their merits. There are thick-walled espresso glasses made of normal glass, but also double-walled ones made of borosilicate glass. The majority of espresso glasses are dishwasher safe, just like most espresso cups. Some have the look of a shot glass, but also the look of a thermal glass knows how to convince with an espresso shot filled. If you think that in an espresso glass the heat of the espresso is lost before it is drunk, you are wrong. Provided they are double-walled espresso glasses, the air between the two walls keeps the heat in the espresso shot glass. If you're worried that the filled espresso glass might get too hot on your fingertips, feel free to go for the version with a handle. At Aromatico we have, in addition to cups for coffee, of course also Italian espresso glasses of the various roasters at a fair price in the assortment. For the espresso shot in the morning, when you receive visitors or simply because you like the elegant glass look better - having espresso glasses in the kitchen cabinet is always a good choice.
IN THE FUTURE, ADMIRE THE CREMA OF YOUR DAILY ESPRESSO FROM ALL SIDES
One criterion for evaluating a perfect espresso is definitely the texture of the crema. For this very purpose, there is the espresso glass, which, unlike an espresso cup, allows you to view the crema and tiger stripes up close and from all sides.
Even if you prefer to conjure up a coffee specialty with milk from your espresso: An espresso macchiato also looks just wonderful in an espresso glass and is great to look at from all sides.
Aromatico tip: To ensure that the crema is particularly dense and delicious, we recommend using an espresso with a minimum of 30% Robusta beans. Feel free to take a look around our store for the selection of the optimal espresso bean. You can also use the espresso and coffee glasses alternatively as water glasses or drinking glasses by drinking still water from them before the espresso, just like in Italy. This neutralizes your taste and prepares your palate for the espresso to come. But the espresso shot glass is not only great for water or simple coffee specialties, it's also a wonderful companion at parties, for espresso shots with a shot of alcohol.
Aromatico offers a variety of espresso glasses with the logo of your favorite roaster. Drink your favorite blend now from the espresso glass of the associated roaster and admire the crema from all sides!
