For many, the morning cup of coffee is as much about ritual as it is about taste, and the Alessi 9090 coffee maker is both a joy to behold and to use.
Designed for Alessi in 1978 by Richard Sapper, the unique interpretation of an everyday object meant it was destined to be a timeless classic. The fact that decades later it is still in production bears testament to Sapper's skill.
A design icon, the 9090 has pride of place in the Permanent Design Collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it was also the first to gain the Compasso d'Oro for Alessi.
The 9090 features a unique opening method, unlike other stove top coffee makers, rather than unscrewing to open it, you instead pull on the handle, which releases the top allowing it to be lifted straight off. Inside, the coffee basket includes a handy reducer plate allowing you to make half a pot at a time.
The stainless steel construction throughout means that the 9090 will not suffer from the same corrosion problems as aluminium coffee makers do, and some parts are dishwasher safe (see instructions for details).
Available in four sizes.
Suitable for all hob types EXCEPT induction.
If using on gas, a gas ring reducer may be necessary for the smaller sizes.
