1️⃣ Please do not purchase a preorder if you are not comfortable waiting. There is no way for me to make it happen faster!

2️⃣ With global supply logistics being a mess in the current moment, this estimated delivery could potentially be delayed. If that happens, all pre-order customers will be alerted.

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!


Slurp black coffee with an even blacker spoon. Be infinite, like the night, like the cosmos.

This pitch-black cupping spoon is perfect for vampires, witches, Posh Spice, Johnny Cash, emo-identified individuals, and of course goths.

(And yes, these cupping spoons are also perfect for ice cream, cereal, soup, and anything else you can eat with a spoon!)


🧮 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: I ship to US & Canada only. HOWEVER, many of my stockists ship internationally, including several who ship to literally every country. This site doesn't allow me to outlink but my stockist list is here, with shipping info + direct links to buy:

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.

Umeshiso a one-person operation with a lot of projects, so at times I may not be able ship orders the exact day planned. If you have any questions at all about shipping times, please email me directly at umeko (at)

📏 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.

The Big Dipper Specs

Weight: 44 - 46g
Handle Length: 5.5 in / 14 cm
Bowl Diameter: 2 in / 5 cm
Bowl Depth: 0.25 in / 0.6 cm

The Little Dipper is shorter, with a heavier weight and deeper bowl. It's great for long-haul cupping tables because the deeper bowl prevents spillage.

The Little Dipper Specs

Weight: 56 - 58g
Handle Length: 4.5 in / 11.5 cm
Bowl Diameter: 1.9 in / 4.8 cm
Bowl Depth: 0.5 in / 1.1 cm


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".

Beautifully crafted. The finish is gorgeous and the weight is perfect. The bowl is fabulous as well. I can’t say enough..

To me, there is no other spoon like this! Between the packaging, wrapping and the quality of the spoon itself, it is surely an experience. I even bought several Little Dipper Goth Black spoons to be a part of my Limited Edition Christmas Gift Box this year! Cannot wait to share Umeko's art and will definitely buy from her again.

The little dipper in goth black is so elegant. I really like the weight of this spoon and everything about it. I was so delighted to receive a thank you note from Umeko. I will be purchasing more spoons in the future.
