The Amici cup collections — Amici Collection and MOU Collection — embody a milestone in the history of our brand. Francesco Illy wanted this collaboration with famous artists and designers, who represent very different environments and movements, to transfer the most varied subjects to our china cups. Real collectors’ items, the Amici cups are numbered and signed. Click on the box of the collection you prefer to discover all the subjects available.
This collection was born in 1992 from the idea that the cup, with its design, is dedicated to consumers so that they can enjoy the incomparable pleasure of savouring their coffee break. The original white cup by Matteo Thun with its simple elegance has become a means of expression for acclaimed contemporary artists and young talents. Discover below the personal interpretation of various artists to renew your coffee break every day. Click on the box of the cup you prefer and discover all its characteristics.
The cups without handles! An unusual elegance for these cups, whose collection was born thanks to the work of 2 artists: Karl Kreger, who with his raised coffee beans on the china has created the illusion that the cup is already releasing the intense flavour of coffee — even when it’s empty — and Ron Anderson, who has used a colourful language with four subjects. Since then, new artists have joined the project to enrich this collection. Click on the box of the cup you prefer and discover all its characteristics.
The well-known cup collections - Amici Collection and MOU Collection - are a characteristic feature of our company. The idea of collaborating with famous designers and artists came from our company founder, Francesco Illy.
Artists of the most various directions create the most diverse and imaginative themes on the porcelain cups in an impressive way. To mark its 40th anniversary, Amici Caffè is launching a new collection of cups in exclusive collaboration with the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Design & Arts. Previously, the students submitted their creations to us and we put them on our website. The community had the possibility to choose their favourites. The four subjects of this MOU anniversary collection were chose as winners.

The project "Let's plant Trees in the Desert!" was my original inspiration.
I wanted to paint trees with liquid coffee on watercolour paper. The coffee pigments always collected at the edge of the drawn brush stroke. The more layers I applied, the darker the "colour" became.
I took advantage of this coincidence and dipped the watercolour paper directly into the coffee. When the liquid is immersed, it starts to move, creating wave-like structures. Repeated immersion creates mountains of coffee.
This is a steppe grass from South Africa that is dried and then usually fermented. The fermentation process creates the red colouring. Brewing time: 4 to 5 minutes
