Design by Guido Venturini, 2000.
This press-filter coffee maker, which can also be used as an infuser. He was inspired by a method of making coffee which is now very common in northern Europe and America, and which was invented in Italy in the 20's - the manual pressure filter. Made of 18/10 stainless steel and polyamide with an inner heat resistant glass, "Inka" was designed for preparing coffee with a particular taste. The taste differs not only from espresso and percolator coffee, but also coffee made using paper filter systems and the Neapolitan coffee maker. Its main characteristic is that it allows you to obtain your desired dosage of coffee by adjusting the ratio of the amount of ground coffee to the amount of water, and therefore to make stronger or weaker coffee according to your taste.
Material(s): Thermoplastic Resin With Heat Resistant Glass
Dimensions: 9.9" H x 6.3" L x 4.7" W; 24 oz.; Capacity

The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.
During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.
