Design

Ancap porcelain is designed to perform with excellence, whether it resides in a bustling cafe or a quiet home. Guided by barista input, each piece's interior features an egg-shaped bottom for polished, easy pouring, and a high quality porcelain body for thermal insulation and increased strength.

Composition

Without the proper composition of choice ingredients, no porcelain can reach its optimum strength, elegance, and performance. That is why Ancap begins by using only the finest quality Kaolin, Feldspar, and Quartz in their production, ensuring that every piece is composed of only the purest porcelain and free of heavy metals like lead or cadmium.

Firing

Quality composition sets the stage for the next defining phase of production, where the raw ingredients are fused together at industry leading temperatures. Topping out at 2552° F, only ceramic composed of high quality materials can survive the extreme level of heat that is unique to Ancap's firing process. This exclusive high-heat production process results in a pure white, hard feldspar porcelain that embodies elegance while maintaining ample durability for daily use.

Elegance

Ancap's porcelain collections add an elegant touch to any environment. Pure white porcelain acts as a delightful contrast against the rich colors of coffee and tea, and makes up the gently sloping walls which roll smoothly to the rim. Every piece is coated in a lustrous quartz glaze, which catches the eye and feels smooth in hand, while showcasing the purity of the porcelain. Crafted to pair strength with beauty, Ancap porcelain embodies a unique elegance that lasts.
