The school of Italian coffee, of black and fragrant espresso, is divided between those who prefer the classic and eternal porcelain cup and those who prefer the newer and more interesting glass.
The choice of glass is becoming more and more popular, starting with coffee at the bar and ending up in the kitchens of enthusiasts who appreciate the design and characteristics of glassware.
Giving up habits is difficult, so many still wonder why we should abandon the cup for the glass.
The history of "coffee in glass" or "coffee with glass" speaks of elegance and taste, of quick moments of relaxation before a busy working day and the desire to enjoy not only with the palate, but also with the eyes, the precious dark drink.
The Roman espresso
The origin of the habit of asking for a coffee by the glass, served in a glass, seems to come from the bars of southern Rome, where this habit is now widespread. The glass allows precisely a transparent tasting and, according to popular belief, a more persistent and frothy cream.
Glass, which is generally less able to retain heat than ceramic or porcelain, lends itself to quick consumption, ideal for bars, where coffee is often consumed standing at the counter. Hence the custom of having coffee glasses in our favourite places.
The ideal glass contains the same amount of drink as a cup and perhaps even a little more, from 50 to 80 ml in capacity, to allow for the addition of a drop of milk or to leave a little margin between the drink and the rim.
A unique sensory experience
Drinking in a coffee glass is a superior sensory experience. The glass, with its transparency, also provides access to the secret that lies beneath the blanket of froth that covers the drink.
Underneath the crema you can see the intensity of the espresso, the way it has been layered, the amount extracted. This adds to the already rich aroma and taste experience and expands the horizons of your coffee break.
The design of the espresso glass
The glass must be made of quality glass. The quality of the glass is easily detectable by wear and tear: poor quality glass will spoil quickly, show longitudinal lines and dull quickly.
A quality glass preserves itself despite use and repeated washing and lends itself to a wide range of shapes and patterns for those who like to give personality to their table and coffee service.
A set of glassware is not only a tool for tasting, it is also a beautiful design object that can sometimes catch the eye even more than the drink itself.
However, the constant that unites the coffee cup and the glass is the preservation of the classic shape of the cup: the correct balance between height and width and the rounded bottom facilitate the formation and elevation of the cream, allow the drink to rest properly without dissipating the heat too quickly and without dispersing too quickly the cream on the surface. A glass that is too tall, in fact, could make tasting uncomfortable: coffee should be sipped slowly and comfortably.
The correct thickness will give the glass the ability to contain the heat of the drink and above all to make it more resistant. With our quality glasses, such as the Duralex line, the myth of fragile glass ends.
