TASSIMO Bormioli Mugs
These glasses are absolutely beautiful.. It truly enhances the coffee experience by showcasing the deep, rich colors and layers of your beverage as you sip it. It adds a special visual stimulus to go along with the aroma and flavor of your coffee. And I think it actually makes it taste even better too!
However, be careful with them. I knocked one into my sink (from only my countertop) and it shattered. So handle with care. These beauties are delicate!

My mugs arrived yesterday and I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome these things are. They are the perfect delivery method for a quality coffee, much like the right wine glass for a cabernet or beer glass for a stout. I sipped some Carte Noire Voluptuoso Corse out of one last night and it was much more than a cup of coffee….it was an experience. The double wall holds the heat while shielding your hands all while being visually appealing. The curved lip allows the coffee to glide over the edge and gently tumble onto your taste buds. At the same time the wide mouth allows the aroma to rise up and meet your nose in perfect harmony. The overall shape of the glass also makes it easy to give your coffee a little swirl, releasing even more aroma just before bringing it up for a sip. Another feature I like is how the Tassimo logo is printed on the outside surface of the inside wall. This means that the logo will never wear off. I can’t wait to go home and have another experience.

These mugs are the best thing yet to enjoy cappuccino - seeing the milk and coffee layers is really great. But the best is being able to hold a hot beverage without getting burned. A really useful and beautiful product. Also, I run mine through the dishwasher all the time with no breakage problems - they seem quite sturdy.

Love these mugs/cups.
The good: Since they have a 2-wall insulation, they keep coffee hot longer, and keep cold drinks colder. And they don't leave a condensation ring, so you can skip a coaster. I use them in my media room chairs, where cups with handles don't fit. I have had 2 for a couple of years, with no problem in durability. I get nervous putting them in the dishwasher, but my wife will throw them in, and no breakage problems so far.
Two minor issues: They do not fit well in the older Braun machines. And it's a stretch to say they are 12 oz. A Large Tassimo cup will fill in to the very top.
