Favorite Espresso Cups - #4 - Gimme Coffee


Today I am going to highlight the Gimme Coffee Espresso cup - definitely one of my favorites for its simple design and understated but bold logo. Like many espresso cups, it is not as much the cup itself, as the association of the cup with the shop. Like a pilgrimage, I return to Gimme in Ithaca whenever we visit to sample some of the best coffee in the world. The straight shots are not for beginners, and are very short, very powerful and very complex in flavor. The shops are well known in town and in NYC (and well written about in the press) for their quality approach to offering up a work of art in a cup. For me, they are the penultimate local coffee shop, it's just too bad I live a few hundred miles away.

So as much as this cup represents Gimme, it also represents the cup of your local coffee shop. Go ahead, head over to your local shop, buy some special drink ware and and support your local shop.
