If you happen to see an old film, of those of the mythical Neapolitan tradition that goes from Eduardo De Filippo to Totò, you might notice a strange instrument at first sight unfamiliar. It is the legendary cuccumella, the ancient coffee pot that made Naples famous worldwide for its coffee.
Until the mid-twentieth century, in fact, the mocha did not yet exist, and coffee was prepared in this romantic-looking machine. Unlike the mocha, which uses the pressure of the steam, the cuccumella has a gentler and slower method: it is, in fact, gravity that passes the boiling water into the ground coffee, filtering a drink with a less structured but more aromatic taste .
A wonderful tool for a gift to a special person or to be shown at home if you have an exceptional guest.
