Cup specialties – the optimal cup-shape.

A cup is a cup, apart from their individual design or décor, right? But every type of coffee has its own unique way of preparation and demands good ingredients like good water and the “right” cup. Similar to wine glasses, there are specific cup shapes which are suited best for their destined coffee. 1. Espresso Espresso, also known as Mocca or Cortado is brewed at 92°C and sipped as hot as possible. Ideal for such a coffee is a small, slim cup-shape which keeps the temperature on the same level. The volume amounts to 0,09 l – 0,11 l. These cups are suited for all versions of espresso – even for Lungo (with a shot of Water) or Corretto (with a shot of Grappa) Picture: Arzberg Cult Linea Negra Espresso Obertasse 2.
