Drip coffee makers
The traditional “Caffettiera Napoletana”, or the drip coffee maker, is still one of the long-standing authentic Italian symbols around the world. Before the invention of the Moka pot which has made coffee preparation quicker, the popular black drink was brewed with a drip coffee maker, initially made of copper and lately of aluminium or stainless steel.
The preparation method is not quite different from that of filtered coffee, but a series of precise details make it a unique product, definitely one of its kind. The Caffettiera Napoletana is in fact composed of an upper and a lower part with a double body. When the water comes to a boil the coffee does not actually rise up, but it seeps down thanks to the overturning of the coffee pot and therefore to the force of gravity.
