Caffè eterna

 

Renato Bialette died at age 93 last week. If you ever had a cup of coffee made in a Moka

then you know him. He’s not the man who invented this machine; he’s the one would made it SOOO popular.

He identified himself with the moka. He was the little man with the mustache, L’omino con i baffi, 

Bialetti, Renato

And so it is both fitting and no real surprise that his urn is shaped like…a Moka
