Espresso & Latte Cups

Start the day right. Whilst we can’t make you get out of bed, our handmade porcelain cups can make it worth the trip.

Carbon neutral since 2020

With an elegant and timeless design aesthetic, Mud Australia thoughtfully creates porcelain homewares that are designed to last.

From our studio in Sydney we hand make every porcelain piece, actively building relationships with the people who buy and love our products across the world.

Sustainability is built into our design DNA. Our products eschew seasonality, complement any interior, and are made to last. All new additions to our range are designed to be useful and complement existing designs. We believe in conscious and responsible consumption, and this starts with good design.

We've always been dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint and our commitment to become carbon neutral was proudly achieved by the end of 2020.

Handmade porcelain drinkware, designed to last

Our handmade Espresso Cups & Latte Cups are proudly made in Sydney. Our pouring team is trained in-house and use a combination of experience and intuition to cast each piece. The beauty of our pieces can be attributed to the hand-made process and human touch.

Using porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France, our 19 bespoke colours are mixed in-house. The pigment is tinted to the body at slip stage to provide colour depth.

Clear glaze is applied to the interior of each piece, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.

Our porcelain is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Explore our drinkware collection, from porcelain Espresso Cups & Latte Cups, Teapots & Tea Cups, Mugs, Wine Cups and Glassware to build your Mud Australia collection.

FAQs

What porcelain drinkware does Mud Australia sell?

Our timeless collection of drinkware is designed by Shelley Simpson and handmade in our Sydney studio. Available in up to 19 shades, our collection is as much about self-expression as it is about functionality.

Regardless of the size of your party, we’ve got your drinkware needs covered — from Espresso Cups & Latte Cups, Teapots and Tea Cups, Mugs, and Drinking Vessels to build your Mud Australia drinkware collection.

What are Mud Australia Espresso Cups & Latte Cups made from?

Our Espresso Cups & Latte Cups are handmade in our Sydney studio from high-quality porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France. The thermal properties of porcelain help maintain the temperature of your drink, while the smooth unglazed exterior makes it pleasant to hold and drink from.

Are your Espresso Cups & Latte Cups dishwasher and microwave safe?

Our porcelain drinkware collection is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher.

To ensure your porcelain does not chip in the dishwasher, gently place each piece on the racks and ensure they are not touching other items.

If you don't have a dishwasher, hand wash with warm soapy water and carefully stack in a dish rack to dry with a clear space between each item.

Caution should be taken with sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven / from oven to cold bench) as this may cause thermal shock which will damage your porcelain. Always place hot items onto either a cloth, wood, wire racking, or our Terrazzo Trivets to cool porcelain from the oven.
