TASSIMO Bormioli Mugs
Gorgeous, but too fragile
Really classy look, keeps coffee hot like a mug, but the glass is so thin it can break just bumping it up against anything or placing it in the sink. Be careful

Drink More Cappuccino!
I love these glasses and have already ordered a second pair! The drinks are visually appealing and even seem to taste better- my cappuccino comsumption has certainly increased with the purchase of these glasses. I love the double-wall design and the elegant appearance. I don't think that they are more fragile than any other piece of glassware- be careful and you'll have no problems.
I do find that they are a wee bit too tall for the brewer as the foam sometimes reaches the spout, but if I take the drip tray out, there is a lot of splatter from the foaming milk. A simple solution is to use a scrap of 2x4 to lift the glass up enough to limit the mess. Also, they are hand blown in China for an Italian company, not made in Italy themselves.

Although other reviewers have noted the glass is thinner than expected, to be fair, at this price point, do they expect crystal? (I recently spent 30 bucks on one crystal wine glass, and it was thin, as well!).
They nicely serve the purpose of containing my latte creations (well, the machines' creations, though I doctor mine with white chocolate syrup!). As well, the insulating property works very well, keeping the drink hot longer.
Of course, you should be careful with them, but that applies to all glassware.
