Located 30km north of Florence is a company renowned and respected for its espresso machines. Its name may not be familiar to all, but La Marzocco has earned the respect of baristas from Belfast to Melbourne. The recent upturn in independent coffee shops globally has meant that La Marzocco continues to find favour with new and burgeoning businesses. Founded in 1927 by Giuseppe and Bruno Bambi, La Marzocco’s espresso machines are well-designed, expertly crafted and aesthetically pleasing.

In 1939, the company patented the first coffee machine with a horizontal boiler, something that is now an industry standard. Its iconic Linea Classic was designed by Piero Bambi (Giuseppe Bambi’s son) and more recently, Piero designed the Linea PB. The PB (named after Piero Bambi) updated the Linea Classic, adding software to control brewing time and volume. Both Linea espresso machines – the Classic and the PB – are handmade and oh-so handsome.

While the Bialetti Moka Express is arguably the world’s most famous and successful stovetop coffee maker, the iconic 9090 espresso coffee maker – designed by industrial designer Richard Sapper for Italian brand Alessi – is superior. Alberto Alessi, president of the eponymously named Italian design marvel, considers Sapper’s coffee maker to be an homage to his maternal grandfather, Mr Alfonso Bialetti, the inventor, designer and producer of the aforementioned Moka Express (Source: Dezeen).
Richard Sapper designed the 9090 espresso coffee maker in 1978. The device is opened using a clever leverage mechanism in its handle and features a perfect non-drip spout. It is constructed from 18/10 polished stainless steel and has a wider base to make full use of the flame or other heat source and to protect the handle. Available in four sizes, the elegant and sturdy 9090 espresso coffee maker won Alessi’s first Compasso d’Oro award (conferred in 1979) and was the company’s first object to be inducted into the Permanent Design Collection at MoMA.

For an uncomplicated yet choice method of brewing coffee, the pour over is increasingly preferred by coffee connoisseurs. It is however something of an art form and finding the right balance of extraction and taste will take practice.
