If you are going to go to the trouble of making a decent espresso coffee you don’t want to drink it out of a cracked mug. You need a thin, preferably bone china cup to set that delicious smooth, nutty caffeine hit off. So whether you are looking for espresso cup sets or just the one for yourself, here are our recommendations:
This coffee cup set doesn’t look like it but it is made from the finest bone china, yet you can bung it in the dishwasher. We love the stylish and contemporary look that makes serving coffee a pleasure. Not microwave-safe.
Cheer up mornings with this rainbow espresso cup set from Le Creuset. This is a more robust cup set that not only adds colour but you can put in the freezer, dishwasher and microwave.
An artistic design here with a bold style incorporating tiles and a black boundary set off with a distinctive red handle.
We cannot believe the price of this espresso cup set and it is perfect if you are looking for a gift for a coffee-lover as it comes presented in a beautiful gift box. There are four pretty porcelain cups complete with saucers in a bird design which are also dishwasher and microwave-safe.
Not everyone likes pretty designs so if that is you then this set may be of interest. This modern design features a copper exterior that looks sophisticated and sleek. They are actually an earthen construction that is dishwasher safe but you cannot put them in the microwave.
These are a bit special! An unusual conical design that is sure to get your guests talking and asking where you got them from. Each one features a different vibrant pattern from the Kinship collection complemented with gold-toned detailing. This set is presented in a beautiful gift box so it is ideal for a present.
Utterly indulgent and expertly crafted, this set of two comprises of cups and saucers and is inspired by the Wedgewood archives, so you are getting a piece of history. Made from fine bone china, the set is dishwasher-safe but not microwave-safe. It comes in a gift box.
A space-saving design here that features the iconic pattern of Orla Kiely. Instantly recognisable, Orla Kiely’s design feature on a number of items. Our only gripe with this cup set is that you must wash it by hand.
Drink your coffee in style with these espresso cups. Designed to reflect tearooms of the past where coffee was served piping hot and in shots. Made from stainless steel, the outside stays cool to the touch whilst the inside retains heat.
Simple, modern, minimalist, this is a typically understated design from Vera Wang that features an asymmetrical colour block on the saucer. Dishwasher safe, but not for use in the microwave.
