Do you have a favourite coffee cup? I have cups galore, but seem to gravitate to the same ones day after day. The big white mug is the first brew in the morning; don’t even try to talk to me until I’ve had my fill of Aeropress coffee. Then there’s the red Loveramics egg espresso cup which I used all the time, but nowadays it’s just for when I’m feeling a bit posh or have company. When I’m just slobbing around the house my go to vessel is the Duralex 120gm glass. It gets espresso and 1:1 Americano depending on how I feel. For the Americano I drop in a shots worth of hot water, then pull the espresso on top.
I use a 400ml, all red, mug. I read somewhere that red tricks your brain into tasting sweeter, more ripe, flavours.
Other than that, my go to is an Aussie style thick glass and Osri hand blown, double walled, glasses for espressos.
One that’s clean!
DavecUK One that’s clean!
Ha ha yeah, I watched your vid “cleanliness is next to godliness” this afternoon!
Favourite is Acme, followed by Loveramics. For fruit tea and hot water, woe betide anyone who uses my big Houses of Parliament mug from House of Fraser a few years ago.
The biggest cup that “notneutral” make, it has a massive flat top on the handle to provide thumb stability.
Love a Loveramics Tulip in River Blue
Denby earthenware for me :)
Loveramics egg is my go to for the morning flat white. I especially like the reactive glaze.
hornbyben the reactive glaze.
I had not heard about this before?
DavecUK It’s purely aesthetic, but gives a bit more depth. Here’s a link to my favourite of the few I bought: https://www.loveramics.co.uk/collections/cappuccino-cups/products/loveramics-reactive-glaze-potters-cappuccino-cup-berry-200ml

Is this like Flip Flop (a custom car paint), or Two Tone Tonics (trousers), because initially I thought it was colour changing due to temperature or something?
It doesn’t really change like flip flop. It’s more like there are flecs deeper in the glaze rather than just being colour on the surface.
Depends on what drink I’m having.
From left to right below it’s espresso, cortado, americano, flat white.
My favourite espresso cups.
notNeutral are my cups of choice too…
My OH bought me these (it was my birthday yesterday) I normally don’t like people getting me stuff for my hobbies as I’m very particular, which sure a lot of you can relate to 😁
Happened to go for a coffee together recently and we were served in loveramics cups. Both of us commented on how nice they were to drink out of.
She was really worried about the flat white cups not matching (due to stock issues) but actually I think it’s a really nice having the different colours now that I’ve seen them. I certainly wouldn’t have bought them mis matched but I’m pleased she did!
Baldrick I do the same; just mix & match the colours. Happy Birthday for yesterday!
