Are you looking to pick up a set of insulated espresso cups or shot glasses for your coffee creations at home?
No matter what your preferred brewing methods of choice are (whether you are making shots of true espresso, cups of stovetop espresso, or small cups of single serve coffee) many of the insulated cups featured further down on this page should be perfect for your needs.
I’ve tried to put some cheap espresso mugs into the list below but I’ve mostly tried to stay true to the title, most of these are the best quality insulated espresso mugs on the market and as such, they are probably more expensive than what you might find from your local Target.
Personally I like double wall stainless steel because of their durability. I don’t care who you are or how careful you are in the home it is simplly too easy to break an espresso mug. I know because I’ve done it probably a half-dozen times already.
Of course not everyone likes the metallic style so I’ve presented a number of excellent alternatives that should help keep your shots hotter longer so you can sip on your espresso a tad bit slower if you like.
There are Many Different Types of Insulated Espresso Cups
Now that I’ve been making myself and my wife “espresso” each morning out of our new Moka Pot it’s become quite clear that we need some sort of insulated mug sized just right for the large espressos and small Americanos we make around the house.
I like using a 2-cup stovetop espresso pot to make roughly 4 ounces of moka every morning.
My wife likes a little less moka but she always mixes it in with milk. For the most part we both are looking for 6 ounce cups.
Doing a little digging I’ve found there are plenty of small double-wall insulated coffee cups and many even smaller espresso shot glasses out there which would work perfect for our needs and probably yours too.
Below I’ve included a selection of the best options I’ve come across. In most cases these insulated mugs are less than 8oz in capacity with some dropping all the way down to 3oz in size. Most are made from glass so that they impart no unwanted flavor into your espresso although you may find the occasional stainless steel or ceramic mug featured below.

I hope this list helps you out. In the case of my family we found we could use a basic coffee cup but then we had to drink the espresso shots faster than we wanted assuming we wanted to drink it hot. Bigger travel mugs were also an option but the size seemed liked overkill. These double insulated cups are a perfect solution and we’ll be picking up a few of them to keep on hand at all times.
