The new coffee classic
Latte macchiato has amazingly stormed the market in the last few years and simply positioned itself between cappuccino and white coffee. While the Italians carefully stir half a shot of espresso in a latte macchiato glass with hot milk and then spoon a layer of froth onto the mixture, baristas north of the Alps don’t have it as easy. Their customers expect the layers of milk, espresso and frothy milk to be distinctly separated from each other so that they can mix it themselves in the glass before drinking it. The Villeroy & Boch latte macchiato glasses with handles – as well as the simple ones without – give each layer plenty of space, so your eyes also get to enjoy your quiet moment.
As stylish as the infamous little black dress
With the exception of the ornate punch glasses for the winter festivities, the Villeroy & Boch tea, coffee and latte glasses have a simple and elegant design, ensuring that the hues of the different types of tea and the deep brown shades of coffee are not distorted. This makes them easy to combine with practically all bowls and plates from our porcelain collections. By omitting engravings and décors, you are more likely to discover your creative side with latte art. All it takes is a toothpick, and if desired a drop of chocolate syrup, for you to turn the froth on a caffè latte or cappuccino into a true work of art by creating wonderful patterns and motifs.
Crystal clear glasses for your favourite drinks
The simple tea and coffee glasses from Villeroy & Boch are made from borosilicate glass – a type of glass that when used for double walls ensures you will never burn your fingers. It barely reacts to high temperature differences and is resistant to acid from coffee or other substances. Even the strong pigments of a strong Assam tea can’t cling to the smooth glass surface, which makes it quick and easy to clean the tea glasses by hand or in the dishwasher. The Villeroy & Boch glasses are very low maintenance and dishwasher-safe.
The new generation of tea and coffee mugs
Inspired by both Italy and the USA, the latest coffee culture encourages you to take a good look at how you drink and serve coffee. Not only latte macchiato can be served in a glass. The double-wall coffee and tea glasses from Villeroy & Boch turn even a simple filter coffee into a stunning speciality. Espresso, which should be drunk as hot as possible, benefits greatly from the insulating effect of borosilicate glass. It is even worth using a Villeroy & Boch glass mug for cold drinks, such as a refreshing iced tea with fresh lemon juice and a mint leaf. The tea will stay cold for longer, even during very high summer temperatures.
