🚨 EXPECT DELIVERY IN 6-8 WEEKS! 🚨
1️⃣ This stock is *estimated* to arrive in July. With global supply logistics being a mess in the current moment, this arrival date could potentially be delayed. If that happens, all pre-order customers will be alerted.
2️⃣ Please do not purchase a preorder if you are not comfortable waiting. There is no way for me to make it happen faster!
3️⃣ If you are comfortable waiting 6-8 weeks AND you really want these spoons, a preorder really is a good idea. I keep selling out faster and faster even though I keep restocking in higher and higher quantities.
4️⃣ If you order this item in combination with an in-stock item, your order will ship altogether when the preordered stock arrives. If you would like your other item to ship sooner, please place a separate order for it.
🚨 If you are not comfortable with waiting 6-8 weeks 🚨 PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A PREORDER! 🚨 Thank you so much for your understanding. I appreciate you!
Stay rosy with your very own rose gold-plated, stainless steel cupping spoon! This beautiful finish looks like sunsets and stonefruit. Each six-pack of spoons comes wrapped by hand, origami-style!
(And yes, these cupping spoons are also perfect for ice cream, cereal, soup, and anything else you can eat with a spoon!)
🌹💫 Please note! I've been having a hard time getting the Big Dippers and Little Dippers to be the same shade of rose gold. So currently the Big Dippers are more 🌹 ROSY rose gold and the Little Dippers are more 💫 GOLDEN rose gold. Just wanted to let you know!!!
QUESTIONS ABOUT 🧮 SLIDING SCALE , 📦 SHIPPING, 📏 SPOON DIMENSIONS, OR 🤔 WHAT THE HECK IS CUPPING? PLEASE READ ON!
🧮 SLIDING SCALE: Everything on my webshop is priced on a sliding scale. Just choose the price that is comfortable for you. My goal is to make each item as accessible as possible, to folks from all different backgrounds. It works because the community observes the honor system: those who are able to pay more make it possible for others with less resources to pay less.
📦 SHIPPING: CURRENTLY SHIPPING TO US AND CANADA ONLY. This is due to major USPS service disruptions affecting international shipments. I hope to have international shipping back online when I'm able to manage it and guarantee a good customer experience. Thank you for your understanding!
Every order is hand-packed with care by me, Umeko, in my home in Kansas City, MO. I ship out orders 1-2 times per week.

📏 SPOON DIMENSIONS: Umeshiso carries two styles of cupping spoon: the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper.
The Big Dipper is longer and lighter weight with a wider, flatter bowl. It has dual functionality and works great for both skimming and slurping.

🤔 WHAT IS CUPPING?
What is cupping? It’s a way to evaluate coffee quality. Cupping is favored by coffee professionals because it’s an easy way to taste multiple coffees at once. But anyone can do it!
If you’d like to cup at home, you just need one or more coffees, a cupping spoon, and a few uniform-size cups in the 6- to 8-oz range.
Add 12 grams of ground coffee to each cup and pour hot water directly onto the grounds, filling the cup all the way to the top. An aromatic crust of coffee grounds will form on the surface. After four minutes, break the crusts with a cupping spoon. Then use the cupping spoon to dip into the coffee, which you slurp from the spoon.
It sounds totally weird but - well, yes it is totally weird. But fun! If you have never cupped before, I recommend checking out an online article or video tutorial - luckily there are tons! Just do a google search for "how to cup coffee".

I bought a second set of the Little Dipper spoons in the rose color the same day we received our first order so that we could gift a set to a dear friend. We love them! They have a nice deep bowl, perfect for soups, pasta, yogurt parfaits, and ice cream.

These spoons were a gift form my husband and he loves them. They are so beautiful! We've used them as tasting spoons but also for soups. The quality is great. The rose gold is a lovely color and they have a perfect finish. The packaging was so fun! They came wrapped in an origami shape with a handwritten thank you. This is a wonderful product.
