Commissioned by DesignMarketo for their exhibition, Coffee & Friends during London Design Week 2010.
Licor Cafe is home made with care by Enrique Alonso in Vigo, Spain. A traditional recipe from Galicia in the North West of Spain, Licor Cafe is made from Orujo, coffee beans & sugar. Orujo, also known as Aguardiente (literally ‘burning water’) is still made locally in many villages of the region and it is obtained from the distillation of the pomace of grapes – over 50% alcohol. To be served cold (servir frio) and enjoyed responsibly.
This set is designed with care by Tomás Alonso to contain and enjoy this very special beverage that his dad has been making for many years.
One bottle and five glasses to serve five friends around a table. Each friend can pick the glass of its choice, but none of them have to worry: each glass holds the same quantity of Licor Cafe.
