The Edizioni series (which simply means "editions" in Italian), is a series of custom designs built around one theme. Each year, Ancap releases a new special edition series which is meant to bring together the best of Ancap's design and durability. Each set includes 6 cups with a different design on each cup. Like all Ancap products, these demitasse and cappuccino cups are 100% made in Italy at Ancap's factory on the outskirts of Verona.

Edition: Arlecchino | Edex

The special edition series selection for 2012, Arlecchino is named and designed after the colorful patchwork appearance of jesters from Italian theatre. The Edex style of the espresso and cappuccino cups' handle allows the drinker to pinch the handle to pick it up. Each set comes with an optional red embossed gift box featuring the Ancap logo (Add as option after Adding to Cart).

Options:

The Features:

  • Pure Porcelain (kaolin, feldspar, and quartz) fired at 2552°F.
  • Designs are fired on In-Glaze, which results in the design being completely protected by the glaze of the cup. This provides a smooth finish that is resistant to scratches.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • 100% Made in Italy

Outstanding Cup Sets

I recently received sets of the Ancap Arlecchino Edizione Porcelain Cups (both espresso and cappuccino) and am extremely pleased with both. The cups are very high quality (some weight to the feel), are elegantly styled with vibrant, beautiful, colorful designs. The handles are uniquely shaped to enhance the overall beauty -- love them! I've had various porcelain cup sets over the years, including collectors' editions from Illy and Saeco but these by Ancap are my favorites. They are wonderful to hold and look beautiful with the Edex porcelain saucers. I couldn't be more pleased!

OMG the perfect Cappucino cups!!

After returning from a trip to Italy have been on a mission to find perfect cappuccino cups - what a find! These are the real deal: amazing detail, exquisite color, and they are sturdy, not the cheap cups you find here in US. So now every morning, that amazing cup of coffee brings me back to Italy- right here in Boulder. Great price and shipping was quick

Beautiful Design, Great Cups

I had been looking for an interesting cappuccino cup - something other than the standard white cup. The Ancap Arlecchino Cappuccino Cup met and exceeded my expectations. Each of the six different designs are so fun, interesting, and attractive that my wife and I like to decide which cups will grace our table each morning. The cups themselves are well made and feel great in your hands. The Arlecchino cups are a 2012 special edition that Ancap made. Their annual special edition cups are usually interesting, but these are generic in design and varied in their colors to make them fit into any kitchen décor. Well done Ancap and thank you Prima Coffee for making them available!

Great customer service

This was my second purchase fro Prima Coffee, my first being a Mazzer Super Jolly grinder/doser. I then purchased the Arlecchino Cappuccino Cup set. Unfortunately they only had four of the six in stock, but told me they will hold the two missing cups for me when the new shipment arrives in November. I received the four cups and saucers yesterday and one of the cups was broken due to poor packing. I contacted Prima, and they contacted me this morning along with a sincere apology, and replacement strategy As a business owner myself, I know that mistakes can happen. I really appreciated the prompt and professional way they handled the situation. Great customer service!!

Outstanding Italian quality and design!

I bought the Edex cappuccino cups about 2 weeks or so. I was concerned a bit since I didn't buy from Prima Coffee before, but I gave a try because I really liked the design...and I wasn't disappointed !!!! Fast delivery, outstanding Italian quality and design! Everything written on the website was true! I love my cappuccino cups! I liked them so much that I just order now the larger ones, the Verona. Cannot wait to get these too!

Beautiful Italian Expresso Cups

Cup artistic designs are great and look excellent on the table, especially in the off-center plates. Top quality manufacture and consistent thickness of ceramic. The "pinch" style handles would probably not work well for someone with large hands, but work fine for me.
