A New Cup

Here is an image of a couple of cups bought in LA a month or two ago. It’s by Peter Shire who was the American representative in the original Memphis Group and who has a workshop in Los Angeles with his own coffee machine. His baseline product are these cups, slab built walls and base with one of a choice of three handles (stamped slab) and an infinite range of glaze effects – no two the same! It seems somewhat clunky but is as easy to use as my Ross Mitchell Anyon cups and that unwieldy-looking handle functions very comfortably and balances hot contents just fine. The cup’s looks belie its functionality. It’s a great cup.

    What makes a great cup is all in the eyes of the beholder and of course how it feels, having a coffee machine it does dictate height and width to get the perfect pour , as a barista these are the essentials in the perfect coffee cup for me no handle necessary!!
