Pantone Espresso Cups

Since I’m a full blooded Italiano, I drink espresso like there was no tomorrow. I love it in the morning, I love it in the afternoon and I love it after dinner. My wedding favor was a nice espresso machine I imported from Italy with a bag of ground espresso. I love it ok!?

So imagine how excited I was when I saw this awesome set of Pantone espresso cups. Then imagine how pissed I was when I found out that they’re only available in the UK. W2 Products doesn’t ship outside the EU and I can’t seem to find anyone in the US that carried them. F-ing great!

  • These are great indeed. I’ve just written a post about beatiful mugs yesterday. Check it out on fudgegraphics. Maybe this will help you find some nice espresso cups!

    Ferdinand, nice collection of cups there. I still have to get that Helvetica mug. I see it’s back in stock at Veer.

    Yeah, they look awesome but the quality is not that good. I bought 2 mugs and after 2 or 3 weeks of light use one of them has started peeling off and is totally ruined. Definitely not worth the money

  • Antonio says

    Nacho, the graphics started to peel off? Did you buy them from W2?

  • Hello Antonio,

    A lovely find. I have one of the regular size cups
    but only use it as a pen/pencil pot on my desk.
    I’m to scared to wash it incase the detail comes off.
    And it looks like I was right to be scared judging
    by Nacho’s comment, if it is indeed the Pantone ones
    he/she is talking about.

    I would be more than happy to send the cups to you
    if you want to buy them and ship them to me, or I buy
    them and post them to you and you give me the money.

    Just a thought, I wouldn’t want you to miss out!

    Have a good day,
    Sam

    Sam that would be awesome! Thanks! Look out for an email from me.

  • That is the awesomest! Though the comment by Nacho scares me a little – I won’t try and get them now (not that it’s possible to obtain it) but there are some other hawt designy objects over on http://www.suck.uk.com (this isn’t spam – trust me).

    I have some of the regular sized mugs and i have washed them and even put them through the dishwasher, with no ill effects, though i think i will stick to hand washing just in case.

  • I have confirmation that the regular sized cups can
    withstand hand washing.

    Someone I work with has been using the Process
    Yellow C since christmas and it still looks good
    as new.

  • so. lovely~

    Just bought some from the MCA store (Museum Contemporary Art in Chicago) as a wedding gift. The prices there are comparable to everything I’ve seen online and they have the vibrant colors available.
