The "Mocha Alessi" range, designed by Alessandro Mendini - is a successful remake of the first stove top espresso coffee maker brought out by Alfonso Bialetti. Its small dimensions further highlight the affection felt for this example of Mendini's artistic philosophy.

This is the Alessi edition of the world-famous Bialetti coffee "moka". In other words, the best Italian coffee-making tradition coming with super stylish design. I love it! I use it with "Illy Moka Ground Coffee, Medium Roast", and the result is a gently balanced coffee, neither too strong, nor too bitter. NOTE - This is the single-cup version, which is not very popular in the US. However, if you're alone drinking coffee, I really recommend you to go through the ritual of preparing it one cup at at time... that's the way you should enjoy it.
It's the best. I love how fast it makes espresso and because its a very clean tasting espresso.
nice coffee + good design.
