Tough glass coffee cups by Tealyra

Besides the unmatchable, smooth coffee itself, the best thing about making a Nespresso coffee is the way it looks as its brewing into a clear coffee mug. That’s why there are so many clear coffee mugs here at LungoCups — to help you enjoy the good things in life!

Tealyra Glass Coffee Mug

This 8-ounce Tealyra cup is another option. Its shape is an attractive squat, only 2.83 inches tall, so it will fit nicely under Nespresso spouts.

These cups are made of heat-resistant Borosilicate glass, which, according to Wikipedia has very low coefficients of thermal expansion. Right. We are just coffee lovers, so, what’s that mean to us? It means they will keep your beverage either hot or cold, and the glass is stronger than other common glass.

A plus is that these are dishwasher safe, and customers on Amazon have verified this.

Another plus: there’s a version that comes with matching saucers.

Available from Amazon.

 

Beautiful coffee!

Bodum Pavina 9-Ounce Double-Wall Thermo Lungo Cups

Bodum Pavina Double-Wall Thermo Lungo CupsThese cups are a favorite of Nespresso fans! The design is becoming and showcases the gorgeous coffee, which is especially pleasing to watch as it fills these cups!

They are a good size for your lungo-sized coffee if you tend to add a little more water to your lungos. I know this first-hand… sometimes I’ll re-calibrate my Nespresso machine for a bigger lungo, especially for some friends who don’t like their coffee so strong. Nespresso calibrates a lungo at about 4 ounces, but this one is a little bigger, if you need a bigger size.

  • Set of 2
  • 3-1/8 inch diameter by  3-1/2 inches high, 3-1/5 inches at widest point
  • Holds 9 ounces each
  • Lightweight, thermal, borosilicate glass; 2-layer construction resists heat and prevents condensation
  • 2 wall layers make liquid inside seem to float; mix and match with Canteen, Pavina, and Assam lines
  • Safe in the microwave and dishwasher — but hand washing is recommended
  • Set of 2 Available at Amazon

Norm Thermo Cup by Menu

Norm Thermo Cup by Menu

There’s a lot to like about this Scandinavian-design lungo cup.

• First, it’s a thermo cup, so it’ll keep your coffee hotter longer. Based on reviews at various sites,  most users say the outside stays cool enough to hold while the inside stays hot. That’s the idea, and it seems to work.

• It’s slightly over 3.5″ tall. That means it’ll sit under the spout of your Nespresso Essenza while your coffee dispenses, without you having to hold the cup and wait. But, it is just high enough that you’ll have to tilt the cup a little to get it under the spout, so it’s not a true clearance of the spout. [See this page for more details on the perfect lungo cup height.]

• It holds slightly over 7 ounces, which is about the preferred Nespresso lungo capacity. [Nespresso’s factory lungo setting is 3.75 ounces, which means this cup would be a little over half full — a comfortable capacity!]

• It’s Porcelain, so it feels nice to hold.

• It’s made by Menu, a Danish design company that’s come to be known for it’s useful and beautiful designs. The designers, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn, strive to combine function and beauty. You can see a collection of the Norm line of designs at this page of items from Menu.

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 4 ounces, so it’s a good lungo size, especially if you tend to use Nespresso’s factory setting, which is 3.75 ounces.

 

  • 4 oz — perfect for tea/coffee or cold beverages and cocktails
  • 100% Borosilicate Glass
  • High Heat Resistance
  • Set of 2
  • Measures 3″ wide and 3″ tall

Set of 2  — order from Amazon.com.

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

“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.

Set of 4 at Amazon.com.
