Handcrafted Espresso Cups

These beautiful espresso cups were a belated birthday gift from my dear friend Kylie (and today is HER birthday–Happy Birthday, Kylie!), who is known for (among other things), 4:30am trips to the Sydney Flower Markets, 7:30am coffee drop offs, stunning creations on her blog, All Things Lovely, and abundant Pinning. The espresso cups were handcrafted to order by a Canadian artisan. I love their slight imperfections–the curvature on the lip of the cups from where the clay was pulled. They have the aesthetic of Japanese pottery and a natural earthiness. Featured in the photo is the set of two, and though you cannot see, there is a macchiato in one and a piccolo in the other. I often make espresso at home on a machine courtesy of my neighbours. The beans are by 5 Senses for Circa–their beautiful, citrusy signature blend.
