A cup of beauty

DeaGourmet Geo Cup with Saucer

Beauty often comes in a simple form. Like a crisp blue sky that gently fades lighter at the horizon. That’s the kind of beauty these porcelain cups from DeaGourmet evoke.

DeaGourmet is an Italian design company that specializes in foodware design. The firm insists on starting with high quality materials, and manufactures its products with a blend of ancient porcelain creation.

These cups are perfect for lungos, as they come in at 2.4″ tall — plenty of room to fit under a Nespresso machine spout. At just under 3″ wide, we figure this will hold roughly 6 to 9 ounces. [We’re in touch with DeaGourmet now to try to get a handle on the exact capacity of each of their cafe cups!] The saucers are perfect for cafe cookies or chocolate treats.

Watch a video where these, and other DeaGourmet cups are discussed.

Teaology Glass Coffee Cup

Teaology Glass Coffee CupThis cup is really similar to the Bodum double-walled glass coffee cup — but this is made by Teaology. I don’t know much about this cup, but some Nespresso lovers have used it, but not yet reviewed it.

It is 3 inches tall, just like the Bodum, so it will fit under the Nespresso Essenza spout — no hands required! These double-walled, glass cups are really beautiful for showing off the rich Nespresso coffee — and you’ll love watching the coffee being dispensed into this cup– what a show!

This cup holds 6.75 ounces, so it’s a good lungo sizes, especially if you tend to add a little more water than the factory stetting, whic is 3.75 ounces.

 

  • 6.75oz/200ml perfect for tea/coffee or cold beverages and cocktails
  • 100% Borosilicate Glass
  • High Heat Resistance
  • Set of 2

Jack by LaCafetiere Double-Walled Cappuccino Glasses

Jack by LaCafetiere 6-Ounce Double Walled Cappuccino Glasses

LaCafetiere says these cups are 3.5″ high, which is just, just the maximum height to fit under an Essenza spout. The 6-ounce version is a good size for a Nespresso lungo, which is factory set for 3.75 ounces, especially if you re-set your machine to add just a little more water!

A set of 2 of these double-walled, glass cups is $14.99 from Amazon, where reviews indicate that this is an “excellent” cup.

Here’s a review from “uniq”:

Excellent glasses, but quite thin and seem fragile. I wonder if they are not thicker due to a bit tricky construction, but I use and like them. Just the right size for my new Nespresso Pixie…

  • Hand crafted of strong but lightweight borosilicate glass
  • Handwash recommended
  • 6-ounce capacity, but also available in 4-ounce and 9-ounce sizes
  • Double walled construction creates the looks of your beverage floating while keeping your drinks either hot or cold longer

6.8 oz. Bodum Porcelain Tumbler

Bodum Porcelain Tumbler

Here’s another Bodum Porcelain tumbler, but this one is 6 ounces, whereas the previous post was for an 8-ounce cup. I think some of you might prefer this slightly smaller cup at 6.8 ounces, which is likely to be closer to the size of your Nespresso lungos. Nespresso’s factory settings for lungos are 3.75 ounces, but I tend to make mine about 6 ounces, and sometimes more, or I may even add an extra shot of espresso on those sleepy mornings!

Buyers of these Bodum coffee cups seem to get a lot of compliments on the design — no surprise since Bodum makes some great coffee cups! [See all the Bodum cups we think are best for Nespresso lungos.]

Like the previous post of the 8-oz Bodum Porcelain tumbler, this one has a silicon grip that comes in a variety of colors, including brown, pink, yellow, and blue. Prices range from about $25.00 to $35.00 for a set of two, depending on the color and the seller.

This cup is 4 inches high — it won’t fit under the Essenze spout unless you hold it.

This orange set is available via Amazon for $34.50.

Michael Lin Cappuccino Cups by Illy

If you know coffee, you know Illy, and if you know Illy, you may know about the “Illy Art Collection,” which regularly introduces a limited line of espresso and cappuccino cups, like this set designed by Michael Lin. This floral collection is signed and numbered by the artist himself.

In this cup collection, you’ll get six handleless cups, each with a different floral saucer, so as a set, you’ll have a bouquet of coffee! These cups are featured here because they are 2.25″ tall and hold 6 ounces — a perfect size for a Nespresso lungo! Of course, they also are perfect for small, European-sized cappuccinos, as that’s Illy’s intent.

Lin’s art typically features floral motifs inspired by Taiwanese textiles, and often is architecturally focused. The YouTube video below shows a nice interview with Lin and features some of his large pieces of work, as well as his inspirations.
