Adventurous stories entwine around the discovery of the black drink with the stimulating effect. The origin of the coffee bean lies in Ethiopia. Coffee was discovered and spread as a drink in the 15th century by the Arabs. It was not until the 17th century that coffee spread from the port city of Venice into Europe. Despite all kinds of prohibitions and adversity, the triumphal march of the "Turkish drink" could not be stopped.
Coffee has gained a cult status and today is a popular everyday drink that is drunk all over the world in many variations. The variety of coffee, espresso & co. has generated its very own coffee culture.
WMF has been working with the preparation of coffee for more than 120 years. Whether professional coffee machines, espresso machines for the hob or trendy accessories and cups, you will find everything you need for the perfect coffee enjoyment at WMF.
Not only the taste, but also the shape is crucial to the perfect coffee enjoyment. That is why the Barista cup series has developed a cup for each speciality coffee, which allows each individual taste to best develop.
The special aspect to Barista is the code that develops as a clever concept. For what has long been common knowledge with wine glasses also applies to coffee. Barista has the matching cup for every speciality coffee, a cup in which each individual taste can develop best. Three factors determine the code: Size, material thickness and shape.
