A time-honored means of bringing people together, coffee has evolved and expanded greatly in the last century, thanks to the efforts of both overcast Seattleites and passionate Italians. The result of a thorough, collaborative design process with some of the world's best baristas, the notNeutral family of cups-including espresso, single cappuccino, double cappuccino, small latte, large latte, and brewed coffee mug-further evolves this ritualistic cultural experience. To fashion the perfect set of cups, the notNeutral took lessons in pouring and sipping espresso. notNeutral studied the dynamics of fluid during a pour, the ergonomics of grips and handles, and the interplay between the cup's mouth and the drinker's nose during a sip. Through this careful examination of the barista's pouring and the consumers' drinking experiences, the notNeutral have successfully created LINO, a family of cups and serving dishes that provides exquisite form and function. These cups functionally support the barista's art, while also exhibiting personality and presence on the table.
