A beautiful hand thrown Espresso Lungo cup, of classic design, but with the perfect imperfections that handmade pottery brings. Lungo (Italian for "long") is a coffee beverage made by using an espresso machine to make an Italian-style coffee – short black (single or double dose or shot) with much more water (generally twice as much), resulting in a larger coffee, a lungo. A normal serving of espresso fills 25 to 60 millilitres, while a lungo might fill 130 to 170 millilitres.
In French it is called café allongé, or Espresso allongé in Quebec. Use it for Americano too!
Each espresso cup is unique. The images give a good idea of what you'll receive.
Quebec Region: Handmade in Bedford, Quebec, Canada
Material & Colour: A mix of white and brown/black stoneware and recycled earth (from previous production residues). Satin matt glaze. The gray-greige glaze varies greatly depending on the earth on which it is applied. So, the results of a piece and one batch to another are subtly different and that is what is sought by the artisan. All these shades will get married in the end.

Christian Roy practices the profession of potter since 1998. Working primarily for other potters, his production followed a dashed line, as the collection sold here are his first series. His work is mostly at the potter's wheel, sometimes porcelain, sometimes sandstone, the glazes highlighting the qualities and shortcomings of the different clays used, that have all their features and their interests, nothing is hidden. He likes to work simple, classical and balanced shapes, leaving ergonomics and natural beauty talk for themselves.
Normal maintenance. Dishwasher-safe. The satin matte glaze used is very resistant to scratches. Goes to the microwave, but the black earth gets hotter than the white because of the iron it contains.
