Description

The architect Mario Trimarchi was inspired by the eponymous volcanic stones of his Sicilian hometown for the design of the Ossidiana espresso machine.

Detailed research concerning the combination of the sculpture and the design finally led to an object which represents a new ergonomic approach: it fits perfectly into the hand and it is easy to open and close. A product which knowingly bases its form on a prehistoric stone, one of the first tools humans used.

The designer Mario Trimarchi goes back to the roots (of coffee culture) with the espresso machine Ossidiana. The sculptural espresso maker made of high-quality cast aluminium is available in different sizes and thereby allows the production of 1, 3, or 6 cups of espresso.

The Ossidiana espresso maker for exceptional coffee enjoyment. Awarded the reddot award in 2015.

Smaller than expected

What can one really say about such a classic of kitchen culture? The quality is excellent and coffee tastes better than in any normal filter machine. Of course, it's not an espresso that comes out here (it would require something like the 9 bar, which of course this device doesn't have), but rather mocha. It's delicious, though. If there was one thing to criticize, it was my own lack of imagination, because I imagined the pot to be a little bigger than it is at the end of the day. You can't get more than 2, 3 espresso cups with the Alessi, but that's clearly stated in the description. Therefore no point deduction, even if the purchase was not 100% successful for me.

Perfect espresso from the beautifully shaped Ossidiana. Good and quick to clean. With 150 ml. exactly the right amount for a morning double espresso.
