20 degree temp difference - So far so good!
on June 19, 2014
I have been using these for a few weeks now, and after reading the reviews on Amazon, I bought these fully aware that my use with them may be limited. We are treating them as delicately as possible - hand washing them, etc.. I did an experiment with how they hold temperature vs. a regular thick walled espresso cup when having a double shot of espresso from our Nespresso machine (drink comes out of the machine at about 160 degrees). The Sun's Tea glasses kept a temperature of over 125 degrees for 20+ minutes vs. a the regular cup at the same time period dropped down to 105 degrees. That makes a difference of it still feeling decently hot to enjoy the beverage vs. it feeling lukewarm and not all that enjoyable. I like these glasses, as does my Italian wife who after decades of drinking espresso is tough to impress, but she was just that!
