The style of espresso has changed dramatically in the past 10 years, we're seeing a much lighter and longer style being served instead of the traditional style espresso. Serving a traditional style of espresso is very well suited to the cup it's been served in. Heavy. Which makes sense, right?
But what about a lighter style espresso that we're now serving? When you pick up a heavy cup with a light tasting drink in it, the customer's expectation of that drink is heavy, as we always judge the tactile first (when it’s being picking it up). But, put that same drink into a lighter, finer cup and your customer's experience is right where you need it to be.
Roman; is a finer, lighter cup. Created for modern espresso and coffee.
To achieve this we used a lighter material, Magnesium porcelain, as it's very durable but light, in fact, it is translucent when held up to the light. We saw a need for a vessel that reflected the change in espresso, something simple and unadorned yet functional.
