Motta pitchers, particularly the "Europa" line, remain all-time favourites and many professional baristas like to call them the “gold standard” in the field. The choice of many barista champions, its steel (18/10 grade) is probably twice the thickness of any cheaper pitcher, giving it real heft. The shape is amazing for rolling milk, and the beak is sharp but rounded for pouring art.
Manufacturer Metallurgica Motta S.r.l. has recently issued this special gold-plated edition of the 75cl “Europa”, limited to just 100 pieces worldwide - each coming in an attractive and numbered wooden box.
