For our retail business in Belgium (Europa), I'm looking for sets of espresso cups. I'm especially looking for design sets like those of Illy, but not so expensive.

You think that's tough! Try looking for plain, white, straight-sided espresso cups. The only ones I found are out of stock with no scheduled date for restocking. The problem seems to be that they are too simple, too inexpensive. But there is no difficulty finding espensive, fancy, even gaudy cups with flared, tapered, or squat shapes.
Overpriced bad taste has forced simple, inexpensive elegance out of the market.
