8 oz. Porcelain Bodum Tumbler

Bodum 8 oz. Porcelain Tumbler

The 8-ounce size of this cup is just right for those of you who like your lungos larger than the 3.75-ounce factory setting. The grey silicon grip helps keep your fingers cool, and the Porcelain keeps the coffee warm. Be advised — one reviewer thought that the silicon grip wasn’t quite strong enough for very hot coffee.

This cup is made by Bodum, a company that really knows how to make coffee lovers happy! This cup is not, however, double-walled nor insulated. See our full collection of Bodum cups for double-walled options.

This cup is 4 inches tall and 3 inches wide at the top. So, it will not fit under the Nespresso Essenza spout unless you hold it as the coffee is dispensed. If you have an Essenza, a cup needs to be 3.5″ tall or less; see this page for more information and photos related to fitting a cup under your Essenza spout.

This cup is also offered with yellow, orange and blue grips. The price will vary for a set of two, depending on the source. Each of these links takes you to Amazon.com, which fulfils all of the orders.

“Funky gorgeous!” double-walled cup

Curva Artisan Double-Walled Glass Cups

These super stylish, handmade, double-walled glass cups come to us from Ozeri, a design firm that specializes in modern homes. This cup set features four distinctly different designs, each with its own curve style that’s set within an insulated double wall to not only show off its design, but also to keep your hands cool when you’re drinking your hot Nespresso lungo! Since these cups are thermo, they also are free of condensation when you use them for chilled beverages.

As one reviewer put it, these cups are “funky gorgeous!”

The cup stands at about 3.5″ tall, which means it will just fit on your Nespresso Essenza machine without having to hold the cup in place while your lungo dispenses.

Like the Bodum double-walled glass cups, these are also on the fragile side, so it’s best not to put them in the dishwasher — even though the manufacturer says you can, and also offers a one-year warranty. Treat it gently, and each will delight you and your guests with a funky lungo shape.

Disposable to-go lungo cups

Dixie 8 oz. To-Go Coffee Cup

Dixie 8 oz.

If you’re just looking for a disposable travel coffee cup to grab and go, it’s harder to find than you’d imagine, isn’t it? After all, you see them everywhere — kinda like the one here, to the left, made by Dixie. But, most are either 12 ounce or 16 ounce, and you want one that’s 8-10 ounces. So, I’ve looked around, and this post has links to some of your options. I hope you like them — if you find any others, please reply to this post and let me know!

The Dixie 8 ounce cup shown to the left can be purchased at Amazon in varying package quantities. The links here take you to the 160-count page.  The trouble is, this package does not come with lids.  You have to order them separately, and they come in varying package sizes, too. But guess what? Not in 160-count! Here’s a link to a 100-count package at Amazon.com.

160 count Cups: Available at Amazon.com.

Lids also available at Amazon.com.

 

 

Here’s another option made by HOMMP. It’s a very durable, 8-ounce coffee travel cup. These come with lids, so there’s no fuss ordering cups and lids separately. These are extra-thick cups and just the right height — 3.5″ tall, so they’ll fit under your Nespresso spout.

Lungo to go! Star Wars version!

KeepCup is a to-go cup you’re going to really love. I have two myself, in different colors. This is just what you need if you’re looking for a smaller travel coffee cup; but KeepCup also has these available in 12-ounce and 16-ounce versions, if you need an entire set!

Here’s why you’ll love these travel lungo cups:

• They’re just the right size for your lungo, with an 8-ounce capacity.

• They feel good when you hold them. The plastic has a nice finish to it, and the rubber ring shields you from the hot coffee.

• The lid doesn’t cut your lip when you sip! The soft plastic is contoured just right, and it feels good when you sip. You probably have experiences other to-go cups that feel funny on your lips, but the KeepCup designers know this, and designed a lid that feels good. This is probably one of many reasons this cup has won a number of design awards!

• They don’t require heating before filling, so your lungo stays hot.

• Great color options! The cup featured here (called “jalapeno”) shows a bright orange band with a red topper, but there are lots of other color combinations.

This cup is 3.5″ tall, so it’ll just fit under an Essenza spout: you don’t have to hold it in place while your lungo dispenses if you use the Essenza Nespresso model.

Polish Design Mug

Polish Pottery MugThis floral pattern stoneware mug is a classic Polish design… and the mug is made in Poland. It holds 8 ounces, so a perfect lungo size.

Unfortunately, I don’t know how high this mug is, but it looks plenty low enough to clear the spout of Nespresso’s Essenza model. If any of you order this, please leave a comment below and let us know how tall this mug is, please!

This mug is not currently available, but there are similar ones at Amazon.

Italian-made glass coffee cup

Cappuccino Cup with Stainless Steel Handle

Here’s a classic design: glass cup with stainless steel handle. Very European. Made by Italian glassware company Bormioli Rocco Verdi, this cappuccino cup is made with tempered glass, suitable for hot or cold beverages.

But of course, we want to use this for our lungos, and with an 8-ounce capacity, this size will definitely hold the factory setting 3.75-ounce lungo, but also is good for those of you who change the settings and add a little more water. The glass style makes for a beautiful display of Nespresso’s rich lungo.

The handles are removable for easy cleaning. If you’re concerned about this handle, here’s a handy quote from an Amazon review: “i have normal size old lady hands and 3 fingers fit in handle.” At the time of this post, this lungo coffee cup had earned a 4.1 star out of 5-star rating from Amazon, with 31 total reviews. Not bad!
