Alessi Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker: 6 Cups.

Alessi 6-Cup 10.5 Oz Express Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker ALESSIAAM336X. The Moka Alessi 6-Cup Espresso Maker was designed by Alessandro Mendini for Alessi in Italy. This is the 6-Cup Alessi Moka Stovetop Espresso Maker which makes 6 two-ounce cups of espresso in just 4 to 5 minutes. The 6-cup Moka Alessi pot is the perfect size for two people - 3 shots of espresso each. Part of the Moka Alessi series, this stovetop brewer is made of durable polished aluminum and features an attractive design in the typical manner of Alessi Italy. The Moka Alessi Espresso Maker features a flip-up top and side-pour spout provide added convenience. Includes 1 x Free "Lavazza Crema e Gusto" pre-ground Espresso!

For a strong coffee, please fill the filter with medium ground coffee and make a small cupola that slightly protrudes beyond the rim. Do not press down. For the best and strongest coffee, please heat at low heat for about 10 minutes, never allowing the coffee to boil. In Italy, they take their time as well. It's a morning ritual for every Italian. Never wash the Moka Alessi in the dishwasher or with detergents, just rinse it under tap water.

This project is a tribute to my maternal grandfather Alfonso Bialetti who, in the '30s of the 20th century, was the inventor, designer and first manufacturer of the Bialetti 6800 Moka Express Stovetop Percolator (Moka Express), the popular Italian espresso coffee maker. Octagonal in shape, inspired by Futurism and Art Deco, and produced in die cast aluminium, the "Moka" is an archetype in its category, earning my grandfather eternal fame as a designer, even though he probably wasn't looking for it. I have often asked myself the reasons why this small household object became such a phenomenal example of Made in Italy. Recently, it's even been bestowed the status of proto-Italian design. The fact is that the "Moka" is indelibly inscribed in the collective memory of the Italian people. It formalized a new, contemporary ritual, intimate and familiar. With the reassuring rumble of the coffee being produced over a gas flame, it has established a connection with the public's imagination that will continue to be repeated every morning regardless of the fashions currently prevailing on the market of electric, single-serving coffee pots with their packets and capsules. In our history we have already addressed the issue of the Espresso maker with projects created by top designers: Richard Sapper, Aldo Rossi, Michael Graves, King-Kong, Piero Lissoni, Wiel Arets, and intended for the high-end market. This time I asked Alessandro Mendini (with whom I've been talking about this issue for at least twenty years) to come up with a new project for a coffee maker, trying to put himself in my grandfather's shoes and re-interpret the ingenious invention with today's awareness of the levers effecting contemporary design. And all of this done with the great innovation of maintaining a low price, an exceptionally low price for a product from Alessi. - Alberto Alessi
