Designer coffee makers are one of the most important chapters in Alessi’s history. The stories of the projects that have interpreted this iconic object.
A little steam engine
The first espresso coffee maker that hasn't been unscrewed for over 30 years. It opens with a handle.
Familiar yet unexpected
With its evocative shape, which inspired its name, Pulcina contains a small but revolutionary innovation that enhances the flavour of the coffee.
A reinterpretation of the classic moka coffee maker, its flat lid is designed to make it suitable for warming the cups to enjoy the aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
From the designer's vision of a coffee maker for everyone comes La cupola, a symbol of the dialectics between architecture and the domestic landscape.
In symbiosis with nature
The fretwork of the sheet metal is superimposed onto the transparency of the glass, creating an interplay of solid areas and spaces reminiscent of tree bark.
