These 1 ounce 100% copper cups are designed for use in situations when glass is too fragile – like camping trips, buck’s parties and birthdays for 3 year olds. The cups are seamless and due to the fact that they’re pure copper, they’ll develop a beautiful patina over time but can be brought back to brand-new condition with a quick polish.
This set of 4 copper cups is handmade in Turkey where they’re usually used for drinking the obscenely strong local coffee, you could use them for this purpose as well of course, but I prefer the idea of using them to work my way through a bottle of Basil Hayden’s next to a roaring campfire.
