Any espresso connoisseur knows that the first consideration when planning an espresso cup purchase is size. To keep the drink appropriately warm and avoid the crema from spreading too thin, aim for an espresso cup around two to three fluid ounces. The cup material is another important feature to keep in mind, as the wrong build could affect the taste of the espresso. Porcelain by far is the ideal choice, but other ceramic and glass constructions work fine. Evade metal and plastic cups (unless BPA-free), both for taste and health reasons. To further ensure a fantastic espresso, be sure to purchase a cup that tapers near the bottom as it pushes the crema to the top of the glass.
