I bought these as a Christmas gift for my mother in law, I thought that they were so pretty and I just knew that she would use them everyday. However when I received them they are sooo small, not even big enough to use as tea cups. I was very disappointed with them. Even though they are very pretty they aren't practical to use as coffee cups or tea cups for that matter you can't even get your finger through the handle to hold them.
I purchased 2 boxes for holiday gifts. The coffee cups were very nice but they were a bit smaller that I was expecting. Not really "coffee" sized - more like tea. They were sent via UPS and the boxes were just jammed into the UPS box without any other packing materials. The UPS box was barely wide enough to accommodate the 2 boxes but luckily the cups were not damaged.
These cups were smaller than I expected (though it was probably in the description and I didnt notice). Anyway they're cute and are nice with the coffee press.

The cups are just perfect. We enjoy 2-cups each per day and they are the right size and hold the right quantity of coffee to meet our daily coffee allowance. They were packaed very caefully and arrived at our home in perfect, and very timely.

This coffee set is wonderful. Holds just the right amount of brew for me. Just the way I like it. It is very attractive and I can display them in my coffee nook and they add a nice touch to the area. I have ordered similar cups from this site and I LOVE THEM all. Dishwasher safe, do not tarnish, very attractive. Coffee stays warmer due to the metal casing around the cup. Small and dainty, handles nicely. Does not feel like a clumsy mug! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Thanks Overstock, for all the great buys I get thru your site.
Well constructed and made of quality materials these coffee cups look great. Be aware they are fairly small and do not hold more than 6 or 7 ounces of coffee. I purchased these with the pot and they look great sitting on my coffee bar!
These are really cute, however they are really small and definitely not for coffee. Maybe for like a bailey's coffee drink, but nothing more than that. It's my fault that I didn't read the oz on the product details, so just make sure you know before you buy---very small!
I switched over to glass to avoid some of the harmful chemicals in mugs. This is a very stylish alternative to just plain glass coffee mugs. They are small so it's great for portion controlling your java, if your cutting back on caffeine or great for tea and expresso. If your a coffee, sweetener, milk and whip cream kind of person forget it they are two small for that. The glass comes out of the stainless steel bottoms so you can wash them but it's a snug fit. I had one that was stuck and would not come out of it's bottom.
I got these after my uncle was admiring some similar ones at a casino recently. I searched everywhere and Overstock.com was the only place I found anything that even came close to the glass and chrome design I was looking for. I was disappointed that these only came in sets of two for the price, I would have liked to have seen a set of four. Otherwise, they were very nice and seemed to be of quality.
I got these cups to go with the French press coffee maker I purchased for my daughter. She absolutely loves them. They are very good looking and the glass is weighty. (not thin or brittle). She uses both the press & the mugs everyday and has not had a problem. Christmas is coming and I think I'll get 2 more sets of these mugs for her, then she can throw away the miss matched mugs she is currently using. Thank you Overstock for having good quality merchandise and unbelieveble prices!
I was delighted with the 3 sets of cute coffee cups I received; they are so "kitchen-ee", yet sophisticated. Five of them are intended as a Christmas gift for a coffee-loving family. There will be one left over which I will use for another tea-loving friend. These cups are like no others I found. I'm glad I checked "The O" before I gave up on the gift ideas. This is not the first time you've saved an "Idea" I was working on.
Cup is way, way to small for any coffee drinker, didn't send back but have never used them and I know I never will holds nothing as far as a liquid.
