At Italyin30Seconds we try to bring the best of the Italian lifestyle to our readers with a written shot of espresso to inform, educate and encourage you to experience Italy. We know you’re busy so we try to do this in 30 seconds or less. When we saw this Lilliputian moka pot, weighing in at 3.9 grams we knew we found our poster child.
A piccolo coffee maker probably no bigger than a coffee bean. The creation of Italian silversmith Pietro Marmo it only makes 10 drops of coffee at a time. Hardly enough to fuel our espresso driven life but a metaphor none the less for the small drops of sweetness to be found in la dolce vita of Italy.
