Always the right touch
Some morning grouches need their first espresso or mocha as soon as they get up, others can wait until the end of a long dinner. Espresso has become a part of our everyday lives and so there’s no getting around espresso sets and spoons any more when choosing crockery. Espresso spoons are the perfect accessory for adding subtle touches of colour or shapes. Sometimes the right spoons can breathe new life into an existing set. Combine the original design of an espresso spoon set with the diverse shapes of our porcelain ranges. If you plan on offering sweet treats, you’ll find that Villeroy & Boch also has matching cake forks to add the finishing detail to your coffee get-together.
Sometimes size does matter
They are often the smallest item in a cutlery set, yet very few coffee lovers would be willing to go without them: espresso spoons. Preferably with amaretti or some other delicious tiny biscuit resting on it. As a normal portion of espresso is about 25 ml by Italian standards, most espresso cups can hold 40 to 100 ml, so a standard coffee spoon measuring about 15 cm long would look supersized. Moreover, it would throw the cup out of balance or constantly fall off. Therefore, use the small spoons from Villeroy & Boch so you can enjoy this coffee speciality with all your senses.
The best stainless steel, even for the smallest spoon
Espresso and mocha spoons are used every day. This is why it is so important that they look good, don’t wear out and are dishwasher-safe. The Villeroy & Boch espresso spoons are made from high-quality stainless steel to ensure you can enjoy these three characteristics. The alloy consists of 18% chrome, which makes the spoons rust-proof and provides the special sheen. The nickel content of 10% prevents coffee acids from influencing the metal and the espresso spoons remain tasteless. Moreover, the coloured silicone handles that make our special coffee collections so distinctive are food-safe and will not fade.
A symphony of shapes and colours
The sophisticated designs of our stainless steel cutlery can be easily combined with practically any crockery set. When it comes to table cutlery, people often aim for a uniform effect, but espresso spoons are simply perfect for adding an individual touch. So you shouldn’t worry if the spoon set comes from a different collection. Always listen to your own taste and experiment with contrasts. You can even do this within a collection, as the Caffè Club espresso and mocha spoons prove. Featuring a unique shape and a coloured silicone strip on the handles, this range will delight anyone who not only wants to enjoy coffee, but also the design.
