Espresso Coffee Maker designed by Mario Trimarchi for Alessi. In aluminium casting with black handle and knob in thermoplastic resin. Lid can be raised using only one hand.

Hand wash only The Ossidiana range from Alessi is designed by Mario Trimarchi and was inspired by the faces of the original Moka coffee pot and those of obsidian, the volcanic stone it is named after. This fascinating design features the iconic multifaceted shape and introduces a series of details that make the Ossidiana design new. The shape makes it easy to hold and the position of the knob allows you to easily raise the lid using only one hand. A clever internal tongue ensures that when the lid is lifted the condensation runs down the inside of the pot and not the handle. The handle has a faceted shape that is both ergonomic and functional and it is positioned just the right distance from the body of the pot to prevent scalding when holding it. For those who don't want to compromise on the unmistakeable taste of coffee prepared with an espresso coffee maker and also a fantastic gift for coffee enthusiasts.
You can count on Alessi for form, function and fun. Established in 1921, Alessi strive to bring design dreams to life in a way that enlivens emotion for the end user. The Italy-based brand takes ordinary everyday objects and elevates them to iconic status – the whistle of the stove-top kettle takes shape as a singing bird, whilst the Salif citrus squeezer has earned cult status owing to its retro-future tripod design. From a quirky homeware gift to an elegant kitchen utensil or tool, Alessi’s well-designed pieces bring contemporary Italian design, and a touch of humour, to the home.
