You’re a coffee nut.
You wake up and the first thing you think about is your morning brew. Maybe it’s a foamy latte. Perhaps it’s a steaming hot americano.
Whatever it is, you’re a coffee pro at this point and you only settle for the best.
If this is true, then it’s time to upgrade your espresso game! Glass espresso tasting glasses are what the professional baristas use in your favorite hipster coffee shop down the street. Sure we see ceramic espresso cups being used in movies and served to customers at shops, but why shouldn’t you do what the pros do? Time to grab a few glass espresso cups for your personal home coffee espresso maker, and then some thermos (like the Zojirushi one), for keeping coffee hot while you’re on the go!!
