I.P.A. Competition Cappuccino Cup & Saucer
The preference for third wave coffee houses & barista competitors, this smaller volume cappuccino cup reduces the milk ratio, allowing for the coffee flavor to shine. Colored in flashy bright red glaze. Hard feldspathic porcelain heated to 1400Ec for greatest durability and resistance to scratching. Designed & produced by one of Italy's finest cup manufacturers. Produced for commercial use but elegant enough for even the most discerning homes. Dishwasher safe.
W. 3 1/4"
H. 2 1/4"
V. 5.6 oz
Perfect size for the traditional cappuccino. The red cup is warm red in color, very attractive. I pre-warm my cups, and the porcelain is thick and retains the heat of the drink. Serving in a correct cup size actually improved my drink, because I am now proportioning the correct volumes of coffee/steamed milk and froth.
The volume is less than advertised and the handle is very small. I like the look and it holds the heat. REPLY: WE have tested the volume and it is accurate (we measure a full cup)
This cup is very much worth the $$. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who loves coffee! I use it for my Espresso Machine and its perfect height. This company is also amazing and VERY responsive.
I used to use the larger red IPA cups but now have switched to these delightful items. They force you to alter the proportion of coffee to milk and that has resulted in more powerful and tasty cappucinos
