The Italian Moka pot is a great way to brew small servings of coffee, espresso-style. (Note: purists are quick to point out that Moka coffee is not espresso, although with the proper pressure, beans, and grind, the Moka can produce the coveted crema of espresso.) But this iconic little pot is also a great design and lately we've noticed its image popping up kitchen art and decoration. Here's a roundup of some of our favorites.
The Moka pot (also know as a Macchinetta or 'tiny machine') was invented by Alfonso Bialetti in 1933 and continues to be manufactured today.
