ESPRESSO SHOULD BE DRINKED FROM HANDMADE MUGS. This little mug goes perfectly with espresso. Or why not serve the dessert in it. You will probably find more areas of use. I turned the mugs in a dark brown-black stoneware clay. The glaze is wonderfully shiny white, but not opaque but beautifully transparent against the tan-black clay, so that you see the beautiful turning lines. The mug holds about 1 dl. They are easy to machine wash.
