2012 – Lavazza Team & Davide Oldani

After the perforated Espoon, the team at the Training Center, together with Davide Oldani, have developed the Ecup: a streamlined, elegant espresso cup with a steeply-angled side, that lets the espresso slide down smoothly from the nozzle of the machine.

It features an air chamber that isolates the coffee to prevent scalding, while two small hollows on the side of the cup provide finger-holds. With Ecup, the espresso slides down gradually into the cup, so that the crema remains intact and the flavour and aroma are preserved to the full.
