LATTE MACCHIATO – A SPECIAL GLASS FOR A VERY SPECIAL BEVERAGE
Form follows function – looking at the special features of Rastal’s latte macchiato glass, this rule is a true categorical imperative because what would the classic Italian coffee beverage be without the visually appealing separation of milk, espresso and milk froth! One characteristic of this innovative special glass is the thickened wall in the grip area. It clearly prevents the beverage from cooling too quickly and ensures that the layers will remain neatly stacked in the glass for a long while. This effect is even more enhanced by a ledge provided on the inner wall surface of the glass vessel. By the way, the ledge also allows a huge number of glasses to be safely stacked on top of each other. This innovative design was developed in cooperation with coffee specialist Dr. Steffen Schwarz.
