The combination of coffee cup, saucer and cake plate should not be missing in any café: The traditional composition of coordinated coffee tableware shows class and looks modern, refined or nostalgic, depending on the design. Whether colorful, monochrome or pure white - with porcelain tableware from VEGA, you can serve your coffee specialties, cakes and pies in the style of your restaurant: whether for breakfast, afternoon coffee or dessert in the evening. In our online store you will also find matching cups and saucers for coffee, espresso, latte and co.
Unlike tea service, coffee service includes not only a cup and saucer, but also a matching cake plate. This tradition probably comes from the fact that cakes and tarts were more often served with coffee, which required their own plate. Tea, on the other hand, usually got by with dry pastries or rolls served on displays. Matching tableware is characterized then as now by a matching design, which also applies in miniature to coffee tableware. The triumph of the various coffee specialties such as latte macchiato, capuccino, caffè corretto or café liégeois demand different sizes of cups and matching saucers. The LUSINI range takes the diversity of coffee enjoyment into account.
The perfect coffee enjoyment requires not only the right tableware but also the appropriate cutlery. LUSINI offers a wide range of coffee spoons and cake forks.
Not all coffee is the same! Did you know that there are five different types of cups for coffee? Depending on the type of coffee, with or without milk, the cups differ in size and shape. We will explain the special features or distinguishing characteristics:
Dark rims on porcelain cups often occur when coffee or tea residue dries into cups. Baking soda or cleaning tablets for dentures help against this - dissolve the agents in hot water for cleaning or let the cups soak in it overnight.
Saucers always come into disrepute: they are often perceived as old-fashioned and cumbersome. Hip coffee chains rely on disposable cups anyway and don't give a damn about coffee culture. Some cafés also do away with the extra piece of crockery because it saves space on the dish rack and space in the dishwasher. Still, there are some advantages to using saucers:
Until the end of the 18th century, it was considered fine table manners to pour the hot beverage from the cup into the saucer and then drink the coffee or tea from the saucer. Pouring allowed the liquid to cool to drinking temperature more quickly.
Our coffee tableware series are made of high quality porcelain. The term porcelain originally comes from the Italian porcellana and is also known as white gold. Why is porcelain in particular suitable for the production of coffee tableware?
