Alessi La Tavola di Babele Classic Neapolitan Coffee Maker and Stovetop Espresso in Stainless Steel with Walnut Handle designed by Riccardo Dalisi in 1979. The most luxurious espresso maker in the Alessi collection. Manufactured by Alessi in Italy, One of the most complex and lengthy projects ever undertaken by Alessi. Dalisi produced over two hundred (working) prototypes over a course of nine years, before completing and settling on this intriguing coffee maker. Half milk pan, half oil can, Dalisi took inspiration from the very traditional Italian coffee pots that preceded the moca and espresso. The coffee is made on the hob in the same way as a traditional espresso maker but the whole unit is then inverted. The half containing the spent grounds is removed leaving the 'oil can' base to be presented at the table.
Designed by the Italian industrial designer "Mario Trimarchi", La Tavola di Babele is a premium grade stovetop espresso coffeemaker that makes a distinguished Neapolitan coffee style and that is hand crafted to the highest possible standards in the industry. Alessi's legacy of quality and reliability lives on in this coffee maker crafted in high-quality 18/10 stainless steel and Canaletto walnut handle. Simple, stylish and functional. Made by Alessi in Italy.
