Richard Sapper Espresso Maker

I must admit to a little personal involvement here; I own one of these. I bought it because it worked, and it looked good. Since then I have come to appreciate how the parts lock together with a satisfying ‘clunk’, how it is easy to load with coffee and water, and how easy it is to wash the thing after the coffee.

Oh, it makes great coffee too.

This coffee maker was designed by Richard Sapper for Alessi, and is on display in the Permanent Design Collection at the MOMA in New York.
