First off, there's nothing wrong with doing a very detailed review and analysis of espresso cups, is there? I mean, it's normal, right? Sane, I mean. Oh, who am I kidding. You have to be some kind of hyper espresso freakazoid to even want to consider an espresso cup comparison review. But here it is, in all it's glory. In this detailed review and shootout, I take a look at cups from Illy, from Tognana, from Francis! Francis!, and from Saeco. Interestingly enough, 3 of the 4 cups come from Germany, where the 4th comes from Italy. You'd expect all great espresso cups come from Italy, but during the course of research for this review, I discovered that Germany is a veritable hotbed of porcelain and ceramic makers! For the Illy representative, I'm taking a look at the Schwung series of art cups. Francis! Francis! is representated by their Zig Zag set. Saeco makes their appeara...
