In the Dominican Republic expresso cups are the norm for drinking coffee. We like our coffee strong and even though I started drinking it after moving to the US, I never got a set of expresso cups during my 8 years living in my NYC apartment. I’ve recently had more visitors and activities in the house and it has made me think that I need a set of expresso cups and saucers. Why the saucers? Well, my Dad drinks his coffee in a very particular way. He pours the coffee from the cup to the saucer and then drinks from it. Strange, but a smart way to cool down the extremely hot beverage, especially in the heat of the caribbean.
With my parents visiting this week, I have another reason to go shopping for the perfect set. Here are 10 options, some sold by the set but others sold separately. I really like number one but would love to get at least one cup of numbers 4 to 10. Which one would you get?
