Stovetop Espresso Maker/6 Cup
Richard Sapper for Alessi 1979
18/10 Stainless Steel
9090 is the first espresso coffee maker in Alessi's history, but also the first of several Compasso d'Oro awards and the first Alessi item exhibited at the MoMA in New York. "I wanted to give this machinery the features that others do not have." With these words Richard Sapper described the idea from which he started. 9090 is original not only for its special shape but also for some functional innovations such as the enlarged base that allows to maximize heat, the anti-drip spout and the lever lock that allow one to open the coffee pot with a simple gesture of the hand.
Note: Includes a stainless steel reducer filter insert to make 3 cups if one does not need a full pot.
