Monday Java: Francois et Mimi Espresso Set

It's another Manic Monday. You probably need a shot of espresso to give you a jolt to get the day going. I know I do sometimes. The problem for me was not having the right size cups causing me to go overboard with the caffeine. Thanks to Francois et Mimi, I now have four espresso cups with saucers to have a standard shot of espresso when I need it.

Francois et Mimi Porcelain Espresso Set

Thanks to Francois et Mimi, I am the proud owner of my very own espresso set. There is nothing uber fancy about this set. These are standard white porcelain espresso cups with serving saucer. These little darlings are advertised as dishwasher safe. I can't say if they are or not as I don't own a dishwasher. You can hand wash them without fear of them breaking or cracking as you handle them.

You Can Use Them for More than Espresso

If you are not an espresso drinker, don't think you can't use this eight-piece set (four cups and four saucers). I have to watch my coffee intake at times and the smaller size of espresso cups allows me to have my cup of java in moderation. They are also great for when you just made enough coffee for about two cups -- both of which you intended to drink -- and company comes over wanting to sample some of your brew. Instead of making another pot, you can all enjoy coffee, in smaller portions, while you sit and shoot the breeze.

Final Thoughts on the Francois et Mimi Porcelain Espresso Set

Since the set is pretty standard, it will go with any decor you have. Therefore, if you have friends over for lunch or coffee, this set will not clash with anything. This is a smart choice to own for your apartment or home. So pull a shot of espresso and have a biscotti or Milano cookies while you relax from your hectic day.
