I am, by nature, a skeptic and I guess you see a lot of cups and new designs but these interested me enough for me to immediately place an order for a couple and the shipping process to the UK was made considerably easier by David who designed them.
They arrived surprisingly quickly and I brewed a chemex of Gethumbwini (so amazing) to test drive them this morning. I think one thing that endeared the cups to me was the handle design – you can use it traditionally or put your thumb through and cradle it, which I like. It was also interesting to drink from a curved rim.
I like them and am wonder whether they will make their way into regular rotation amongst the coffee mugs. They can be stacked in a slightly terrifying way but I don’t think I am up to that.
I know some other coffee people have bought a few and I’m curious what they make of them? I suspect it won’t be long before some of his other porcelain makes its way into competition.
