Stoneware Copita Soft Espresso Glaze / Dark Brown Clay
A perfect, little stoneware sipping cup - use it for everything from espresso to sake, mezcal or thick, Spanish hot chocolate. Made for us, individually, by San Francisco based ceramicist Julie Cloutier, these small, hand-formed cups are weighty and substantial despite their diminutive size. They feel great in the palm, and make anything you’re sipping all the more pleasant. A duo makes a sweet gift for a friend, and we keep a set of six in constant rotation in our own kitchen. For example, in addition to espresso, they’re the perfect size to serve a small, finishing taste of chocolate mousse - anything decadent and special, that you might not need a larger portion of.
Diversity is part of what makes assembling a collection of hand-made pieces interesting. Please keep in mind, as with any handmade object, there will be variations in the size and glaze (see photos).
Glaze: The glaze on these cups is reminiscent of the crema on a beautiful shot of espresso It ranges from a deep and dark to milky macchiato shades. The base is a unglazed, and a deep, chocolate-y brown. The copitas are also available in a soft, grey glaze, as well as a soft lemon glaze.
Each cup is about 2 1/8-inches tall and holds about 1.5 ounces.
Made in Northern California.
