The perfect retro cup for your coffee
When you love to drink your cup of joy at home, we have all the cups to match! The popular 70s ceramics with a retro look will add to that homy feel, and they make great gifts for the coming Christmas season.
When you are an espresso lover you like your caffeine in a small but strong dose we have the perfect cup to match the right shot.
To make a perfect espresso, you'll need an espresso or cappuccino machine. These machines pass pressurized hot water through a filter containing dark roasted finely ground coffee beans. The force of the water produces a highly concentrated coffee shot. Espresso is usually served in small cups, or added to a larger coffee drink like cappuccino.
A cappuccino coffee is usually consumed at breakfast time in Italy and never ordered in a restaurant after 11.00 AM :) It is loved in the United States as well. It is usually associated with indulgence and comfort because of its thick foam layer of regular or oat / almond milk and additional flavorings that can be added to it.
Americanos are popular for breakfast coffee and thought to have originated during World War II. Soldiers would add water to their coffee to extend their rations farther. The water dilutes the espresso while still maintaining a high level of caffeine. The prefect cup for an Americano is slightly bigger than a regular cup.
Traditional drip or poor over coffee is most common. This brewing style is achieved by pouring boiling water slowly through coffee grounds as they sit in a filter basket. The coffee then drips into a coffee pot or single cup, resulting in a cup of joy that is according to your taste. We have stoneware coffee pots and filters, to match with the world famous 70s ceramic coffee cups that you can accessorize with saucers and spoons.
A ristretto is brewed in a similar method to an espresso, pressurized water is passed through the ground coffee beans. However, you use half the amount of water. The shorter brewing cycle creates a more concentrated and darker shot of espresso. The ristretto mug is therefore slightly bigger than the espresso cup.
When you are new to drinking coffee, a latte is the perfect drink for you!
Cafe lattes are considered an introductory coffee drink since the acidity and bitterness of coffee are cut by the amount of milk in the beverage. Flavoring syrups are often added to the latte for those who enjoy sweeter drinks, therefore, the cup is taller than regular coffee cups.
The newest addition to our retro style 70s ceramics are the lungo cups. Lungo coffee is a variation of espresso, with twice the amount of water, it takes abut twice the amount of time to pull the water through the grounded coffee beans. Lungo is the Italian word for long, which kind of explains the name of this coffee.
The cups are rounder and wider, to offer you the perfect coffee experience.
