I have an espresso machine at home and all of my mugs are too big to fit underneath it. This set is perfect. The cup fits perfectly under the espresso machine. I love that the plates and spoons are included. This has made my espresso consumption so much easier because I'm no longer having to use multiple mugs to transfer the espresso. The cups and plates are are high quality, heavy glass. I dropped one of the plates by accident but it didn't break. This is a great set. I super happy with it. I highly recommend this set!
