"Impero" coffee cup and saucer with brass filter
The coffee cup of the "Impero" collection recalls, in a contemporary style, the coffee cup used at Caffè Florian at the end of the 19th century.
The classic, linear and elegant shape give it an essential design enriched by the gilt hand painted borders, presented both on the cup and on the saucer, and by the Florian logo with the “lion in moeca” glazed in gold and blue. This classic logo characterizes all the branded porcelain tableware items.
To complete the cup, there is the brass filter that allows to prepare the brewed coffee according to the original Turkish tradition: this method was used at Florian’s before the advent of the espresso coffee machines.
How to prepare a good brewed coffee: put the coffee powder , obtained from a medium/large grinding, on the base of the filter, cover it with the filter and pour the hot water; close with the cover and wait till the coffee is filtered on the below cup. When the brewed coffee is ready, remove the filter and enjoy slowly in order to transform the coffee in a relaxing ritual.
Cup and saucer are microwave and dishwasher safe, while the brass filter is recommended to hand wash.
