The Easy Living Goods Espresso Cups and Saucer Set has such cheery and vibrant colors!

OVERVIEW

This Easy Living Goods Espresso Cups and Saucers Set contains four demitasse size espresso cups, a three 3-ounce (90 ml) size. This 3-ounce size is suitable for a single or double espresso, a short pull, or a smaller morning or mid-afternoon cup of coffee. If you enjoy a smaller but stronger cup of coffee or espresso, or frequently only drink part of a cup, this is a good size for you. It also is a nice size for entertaining.

FEATURES

  • The thick cup wall retains coffee temperature for leisurely drinking.
  • The matching saucer is large enough to accommodate a sweet cookie or treat and the raised rim reduces the risk of spilling coffee

Generous saucer with raised rim keeps spilling to a minimum to protect linens and clothes

  • The set is exceptionally durable. I know this because I accidentally dropped a cup and saucer on the floor (with thin rug) and they didn’t dent or scrape at all. This impressed me for a porcelain cup!
  • The modern streamlined, design has a coffee house vibe but still suits traditional and classic tablescapes.

The clean design complements most design decors

  • The cup is not too hot to the touch
  • The handle is easy to grasp and the cup feels of a good weight in the hand

Easy to use, comfortable handle on a coffee house vibe style

  • The bottom of the cups have a special design to stay put in the saucer unless moved

WAYS TO USE THIS SET

I love how they look when serving espresso and dessert to guests or while drinking my morning coffee. Here are some examples of how I use this set for daily use and for entertaining guests.

Perfect for your morning or mid-afternoon coffee fix!

AT HOME

I like an espresso for a mid-day coffee break pick-me-up, generally with a little treat such as a biscotti or dark chocolate.

FOR ENTERTAINING

I particularly like serving guests with espresso with dessert, and there are several ways to serve it including with a side cookie, a dark chocolate, or a demitasse rock candy stirrer. Specialty Coffee drinks can also be served in a demitasse cup, just in smaller portions suitable for the duration of a dessert course. I like that this set can be used for casual or more formalized entertaining and matches much of my serving pieces and linens.

The versatile set coordinates with colorful tablescapes or stands out against black and white dishes

And because this set is durable, the occasional clumsy guest is less likely to break it, unlike most demitasse size espresso cups. Here are the cups with Rock Candy stirrers to sweeten, ready to serve along with a sweet French Berry Tart.

Some ways to use these cups to enjoy espresso:

  • with breakfast
  • mid-afternoon coffee break
  • with dessert
  • with biscotti or macarons
  • with latte art, if you are particularly artistic, or one can use a stencil design to add cinnamon or mocha atop crema or some whip cream
  • with a side treat served directly on the saucer

SUITABLE FOR GIFT GIVING

Gift boxed, microwave and dishwasher safe, this Easy Living Goods set is ideal for entertaining, daily use or as a gift. The modern look suits universal tastes as the bold colors mix and matches with modern, classic, trendy and traditional decor styles.
