The Atomic La Sorrentina was designed in 1947. Price: $450.
Perhaps the most versatile stove-top coffee maker available on the market- you can make an entire jug of black coffee for “Americano” style drinks or you can make two (or more) small shots of espresso that become the base for delicious cappuccinos, lattes, etc. Simple to use and easy to clean the machine is made to such a high standard it can be expected to last a lifetime with a minimum of care.
