When I shop for coffee cups, the first thing I try is the handle for comfort and balance. Then I make sure the cup's not going to be too heavy when it's full of steaming coffee or cocoa....and I always want a saucer! I usually buy a set of four or six which don't match my everyday dishes. They can't be too small, but I'm not into *bowls* of coffee either. My dad's favorite cup was an ugly, stained plastic travel mug. My mom's was glass stemmed mug. Mine came from Williams Sonoma (but the saucers recently got chipped - waaahhh!). Do you like mugs or cups? Large or delicate? Show me some coffee LUV!!!!
