Summary: this is a beautiful coffeemaker that makes coffee quickly, but I wish I had got the bigger one because I like a big cup of coffee with milk in the mornings. When they say three cup, they mean three teensy espresso cups.
Summary: We bought this coffee pot (correctly called a Moka) in Sicily 9 years ago. Since then we have used it regularly to make what we think is great coffee (I'm no expert). The 3 cup size is perfect for a large cappuccino or for 2 "British Coffee Cup" sized cappuccinos.
Summary: I was given this when my old (cheap) coffee maker gave up the ghost. It's excellent and looks very nice (which is what you're paying for!). Only problem has been obtaining a replacement rubber seal for it - I'm still trying...
Summary: This is a fab looking stove top espresso makers, so very Italian I had to buy one, It looks great on the stove top & it makes very good Espresso Coffee. I have only had it a few weeks & had allways hand washed it after use. But please do NOT do as I did & put it in the dish washer.
Excerpt: Hallo Leser!! Am Nikolaustag war ich ziemlich berührt als ich das Geschenk von meinem Mann und meinen Kindern endlich auspacken durfte. Bekommen habe ich den Espressokocher Alessi La cupola. Huhu, meine Freude war groß, denn solch einen habe ich mir schon länger gewünscht.
