The Moka espresso maker by Alessi, designed by David Chipperfield, is a reinterpretation of a design classic recognised by all coffee lovers. The shape of the espresso maker manages to be simultaneously familiar and innovative – the designer has added details to the product that make the everyday object and icon of the Italian culture even more practical.
In Italian coffee shops espresso is served in a warm cup to prevent it from cooling too quickly. This is why the lid of the Moka espresso maker is flat – you can place the cup on top of it to warm it up before pouring your coffee in it. The knob is also positioned so that you can easily lift the lid and pour the coffee using only one hand. Due to its practicality, the Moka espresso maker helps make your busy mornings easier and adds an authentic Italian feel to your dinner parties.
