I've been thinking about this, how to expo super premium coffees, Novo's Aricha or Beloya... I'm thinking 20oz Pavina cups, half full might be the way...

It keeps the shot too hot. The amount of heat trapped is so efficient that the shot stays hot for too long. It also does something strange to crema, as heat is forced only upward instead of sunk evenly into a ceramic cup.

I've heard that Robert Parker uses a sangiovese style glass as his default tasting glass.
