The Emile Henry Espresso Cup has been handcrafted into an elegant shape and glazed in the sophisticated colors. This delightful cup, made in France, is ideal for the espresso enthusiast as it is made from all natural Burgundy clay with the inherent heat retention properties that allow the holder of the cup to sip, and enjoy slowly, a hot cup of brew without losing the heat or the crema. This diminutive cup is 2.7-in. and holds 2.4-oz. The cup is modern, elegant, casual and refined. When not being used as an espresso cup, this is a beautiful vessel to serve dips, sauces and condiments. The Emile Henry Espresso Cup is stackable, and extremely durable resisting chips and cracks unlike other ceramic products. And since this cup is made in same way as Emile Henry ovenware, it is microwave, hot oven and dishwasher safe. It can be used as a serving dish for soft boiled eggs or for heating butter or other foods in the microwave or oven.
