Detailed Commentary

This stainless steel moka pot is top quality, and is a very beautiful functional design. It is one of Alessi‘s classic pieces, designed 1979 by Richard Sapper.  It is availabe in 4 different sizes 1,3,6, and 10 cups  - mine is the 3 cup size.  I have also tried the 6 cup size - it works similarly. Apart from looking good, it also works very well.  The top part is locked to the bottom part by the handle, which is hinged at the top (might sound complicated, but is really simple). This works better than the thread system on other moka pots, and might also lenghten the life of the rubber gasket. The spout is specially designed for “non drip” function – and it works!  It makes good coffee  - not like espresso machines, but stilll much better than filter coffee.  It is for sale on the Internet at prices in the order of 100$, depending on size. You can get other cheaper moka pots – that might make just as good coffee, but this one gives the pleasure of flawless function, workmanship and beautiful design.
