Most of the time, when you are going to a café or bar for an espresso, it is served in a boring white cup with a saucer.

A kind of tradition, I suppose.

But things are moving on.

More colours, differents shapes are appearing on the market; without destroying the magic of the hot drink…and we are not talking paper cup here.

Le Creuset did innovate. Initially, making kitchenware such as heavy frying pans and pots.

…Le Creuset began producing its first porcelain enamelled cast iron pots in 1925 from its foundry in Fresnoy le Grand, France. It is from this base that Le Creuset continues to produce its world famous cast iron pots…

Now, Le Creuset is presenting the latest product: espresso cups/mugs.

The usual great finish & fantastic texture.

I spotted this when going for a great hot chocolate at Bike Caffè in Exeter. The guy knows his stuff and to catch him check his twitter account.
