TASSIMO Bormioli Mugs
Hand-blown in Italy???
Hand-blown in Italy??? My box said that they were made in China.

These glasses are fabulous as far as having a piping hot beverage in it yet the outside is completely room temperature! Also, they keep hot beverages hot for a very, very long time. Having the clear glass as opposed to an opaque mug lends itself well to hot beverages that create "layers" of different colors with the brewing of the coffee/chocolate and the milk. The shape is also a great feature as it just molds to your hand which makes it really comfortable. The only downside is that they can break very easily. They are handblown, so they are actually finely made and, like many other finely made handblown glassware, they are fragile. We have some excellent, highly crafted wine glasses with the same issue of breakage. If you are willing to give these hot beverage glasses a little extra care, they are well worth it. It just makes the experience of the hot beverage that much more enjoyable. We put them in the top rack of our dishwasher and they come out perfect!

Impress your guests
I've used Bodum Espresso Cups for quite awhile and been very satisfied with them. These mugs are the perfect presentation for serving Cappuccino, Latte, or Macchiato to your guests. Buy two pairs.

LOVE them...but be careful!
I got a pair of these mugs and loved them but accidently broke one when I threw (my fault) a fork in the sink with them and hit one of the mugs. I hate it happened but it was all my fault, they keep hot beverages well and look amazing with a latte =)
