Nespresso to-go!

 In the U.S., we take our coffees to go. It’s not that the Scandinavians and Europeans are wrong to only drink coffee in a mug, sitting in a relaxed setting. That’s a good way to enjoy a Nespresso, for sure. But, sometimes we just need that lungo to go!

For those times, here’s the perfect disposable paper cup, neatly embellished with the Nespresso logo.

Order in 250 ml for an 8 ounce lungo.   Available at Amazon.

Order 100 ml for a shorter espresso.  Available at Amazon.

This is a plastic cup, but looks nice, so if you’re having a party and need a plastic cup to offer lungs galore to your guests, this just might do it. They are “about 3.5 inches tall,” according to one purchaser. So, I think these are likely to fit under your Essenza spout.  If anyone who’s purchased these can confirm this, please add a comment to this post!

These are top-shelf dishwasher safe, so they can be re-used. One reviewer calls them “high-quality disposable.”

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.

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.
