Loreto Coffee Pot - 0.8 L - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
This elegant pewter coffee pot, handcrafted in Northern Italy, is the smaller of two within this elegant set, and has a distinct style reminiscent of a time when coffee was first introduced to Europe from the East, in the 17th century.
Coffee houses grew in popularity less for the love of the taste, but the love of the gossip that ensued at such focal points – gossip, news, through to business was all exchanged in coffee houses, the most famous being Lloyd’s coffee house on Lombard street, which evolved into Lloyd’s Insurance. Today, invitations of a shared coffee is second nature.
Every gathering has a mixture of tea and coffee drinkers, depending upon time of day. The coffee pot is the perfect yan to the teapot's yin. Coffee pots are always the taller pot of the set - the depth helps to promote the settling of the coffee within the vessel, whereas the tea needs to float and infuse around the pot, hence teapots are shorter and rounder.
The shine and smoothness of the pewter complements the shape and style of traditional coffee and tea set pieces; the curves mirroring the beautiful Basilica della Santa Casa, the seat of the a popular Catholic pilgrimage site in the picturesque hilltown - Loreto - after which this range is entitled.
