Alessi is a manufacturer of coffee machines different from the rest that appear on our website. Did we say “of coffee machines“? Well, that’s not entirely accurate because Alessi puts all kinds of appliances and utensils for the kitchen and home on the market. So far, so good.

The difference comes from Alessi’s product approach: an Alessi coffee maker is synonymous with the highest quality we can find in the industry today.

Alessi markets mainly mocha machines or Italian coffee machines in the coffee machine sector. And as with the rest of its products, Alessi coffee machines differ from their competitors in one critical aspect: they are all designer machines.

They bear the signature of a prestigious Italian author, architect or designer. It makes Alessi’s Italian coffee machines unique, but at the same time, raises their price to levels that perhaps not all consumers are willing to assume.

The Italian company Alessi was founded in 1921, and at first, it was a pure brass and metal casting workshop. Now, a century later, it is a new company.

It has its headquarters in Crusinallo di Omegna, and its hallmark is the handcrafted cold processing of all the metals that make up its coffee machines and other articles. The company also carries out important social work in its city and communities.

Alessi coffee machines: Prices

If there is a catch to be made to the Italian Alessi coffee machines, that is the price. All Alessi products are designed and built to the highest quality standards. As a result, they are slightly more expensive than any similar product from a less prestigious brand. It is clear: quality and the author’s signature must be paid for.

As a reference, we can tell you that the price of a regular Italian Alessi coffee maker (made of aluminium) can be between 40 and 50 pounds. And this price increases if we choose the Alessi 9090, made of stainless steel.

Alessi induction coffee makers

Most of Alessi’s Moka coffee machines are made of cast aluminium. This material is more natural to work with and mould to shape the spectacular designs that the authors put forward. However, this type of Moka has a drawback: it does not transmit the heat generated by induction plates.

Fortunately, if you have an induction cooker in your home, you don’t have to give up the excellent quality of Alessi. The solution is the Alessi 9090 model, which happens to be – without fear of exaggerating – the best Italian coffee maker you can buy today.

The Alessi 9090 is made of stainless steel and is available in various sizes, from the smallest of 1 cup to the largest of 1 litre (10 cups) to suit all needs. In short: the Alessi induction coffee maker.
